Eden // Japanese Soba Noodles
Eden 100% Buckwheat Soba are whole grain noodles with a rich, warming flavor. Soba, which is Japanese for buckwheat, is traditionally made in Japan and patiently two-step dried into a delicious and easy way to enjoy the flavor and exceptional health benefits.
Whole buckwheat is stone ground into flour then added to a mixer with pure water to form a dough. A slow mixing process ensures the best texture and flavor. A series of rollers gradually presses the dough into thin sheets that are cut into long strands and hung on poles in a drying room for about 40 hours. Noodles are then hand cut to length and finish air drying before packaging.
Buckwheat - Not Wheat
Commonly people avoid buckwheat in the mistaken belief that it's a type of wheat. Despite the name, buckwheat is not wheat and is not related to wheat.
