SOBA NOODLES

SOBA-12

Description:

Soba is the Japanese name for Buckwheat. Soba Noodles are a thin noodle made from Buckwheat. Because noodles made out of pure buckwheat can easily fall apart when boiled, the buckwheat flour is usually mixed with binders, most often wheat flour. The art of creating fresh Soba Noodles is an impressive artisan activity. Old fashioned milling techniques are used to conserve the delicate flavors of the noodles that would be lost using contemporary techniques. Soba noodles, because of their buckwheat content, are a slow-releasing carbohydrate and have high protein content. Soba Noodles are made with Buckwheat flour, Wheat flour, water, and salt. When cooked Soba Noodles are pale and translucent beige with a slightly chewy texture. Soba noodles can be served drained and chilled or hot in a soy-based broth. Traditionally eaten on New Years Eve in Japan, Soba was at one time offered as a “housewarming gift” to new families in a neighborhood.

Ingredient Statement:
