Benefits of Soba Noodles

5 years ago

I am obsessed.  I can’t. stop. eating. these.  I’m not sure what it is.  Between the chewy texture, hearty taste, salty flavor, thin-ness of the noodles and intriguing color- I can't resist.  They were so good that I ended up eating half of the batch before I even tossed it with a sauce or seasoning.  Now I'm probably building them up (I always do that) but really, you need to try!

Soba noodles are Japanese noodles that are made from buckwheat flour.  Buckwheat is actually not a grain, but is a seed that is taken from rhubarb.  Because these noodles are made from buckwheat, they have an exceptional nutritional profile... 

  •  Rutin, a flavanoid, is prevalent in buckwheat and has been proven to be a powerful antioxidant, helping to fight cancerous free radicals.  Also it has been shown to lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol
  • High in protein (in comparison to other noodles)  One cooked cup contains about 6g of protein.
  • Contains Vitamins B1 and B2, Potassium, Magnesium, Phosphate and Iron
  • Has about 113 calories/cup, no sugar and relatively no fat!
