Default Beech Vs Birch Biscuits

I recently bought some biscuits. The package indicated they were made from Birchwood. All the literature and articles that I have read in the past have only mentioned Beechwood biscuits. I looked up the wood properties of Beech and Birch and they are fairly similar. Is it a raw material availability or cost issue? Some web sites sell Beechwood biscuits and some sell Birchwood biscuits. Just curious.

Everything you might want to know about Birch vs. Beech, but nothing about Biscuits.

The wood ones taste like crap, I'm sticking with buttermilk, but I prefer chicken gravy.

Jim, hold the grits, please. Just never developed a taste for them. Or oatmeal or mush or cream of wheat. But love those biscuits and gravy.

I will go with both the Grits and Gravy, any kind of gravy but groundhog, too earthy for me.

Tomato gravy anyone? It is so good. A saying around here is (It's so good it makes you want to slap your pappy.)

I don't like chocolate gravy.

I've used both, near as I can tell it's raw material availability and cost is all...
both seem to function as advertised..

Try making grits with milk instead of water and add cheese. Big difference.
