What are Soba Noodles?

Soba noodles are a type of noodles that originated in Japan. Made from buckwheat flour, soba noodles are also a great source of amino acids and fiber. They have a nice subtle nutty flavor but are delicate and tender.

In Japan, there are different types of soba noodles, depending on the ratio of buckwheat used in the noodles. You can get them gluten-free, but just make sure the ingredient label does not contain flour.

Are soba noodles gluten-free?

Generally speaking, soba noodles are indeed gluten-free if they are made from 100% buckwheat flour. Buckwheat flour doesn’t contain gluten.

However, there is a variety of soba noodles that contain wheat flour along with buckwheat flour.

Also, it can be the case that soba noodles are manufactured on the same line as wheat flour noodles. It would always be better to double-check the label. In theory, buckwheat noodles should be gluten-free.
