Nutrition Tip:

Dark buckwheat flour is higher in protein and lower in calories than regular pasta: A cup of cooked soba has only 119 calories. It’s also the reason soba noodles have a brownish-grey colour.

Gluten-Free Tip:

Look for soba made with 100% buckwheat — many are made from a blend of buckwheat and wheat flours.
