These organic ramen noodles have been carefully made from buckwheat flour which has a high content of protein and fiber. Suitable for a wheat free diet because it is not a type of wheat but the seed of a broad leaf plant related to the rhubarb family.

These King Soba Organic 100% Brown Rice Ramen Noodles are great for those of us on a gluten-free diet! Just add one rice brick per person (or two if you're super-hungry and eating alone) to boiling water. There are four bricks per package. You just pull them apart with a fork when the noodles start to separate. Ready to eat in 3 minutes. Rinse and strain in cold water. The noodles are wheat and gluten free, with only two ingredients: brown rice flour and water. They taste like the real thing, which is to say, not like much, but that's the idea--they pick up the flavor of whatever sauce you use. Unlike Top Ramen, no flavor packets are included with these, so you will definitely need to do flavor them yourself.
I was anxious to try them tonight, but had a mostly bare pantry, so my idea was to pan-fry up a chicken breast with some onion, spices, and Gramas Sweet Chili Sauce 13 oz (which is an amazing Thai sauce, by the way), then add that to the ramen, along with more sauce. Turned out quite tasty. Next time, I intend to get more ambitious with my ingredients.
The label says that the production "factory may handle nut and sesame products." Not being allergic to those, my only concern is that they are made in China, which is not normally where I would want to buy anything from, especially food. But the package says the noodles are "certified at source" with a control number. Unfortunately, it doesn't say who they are certified by or for what (I'm assuming that certification is to ensure the ingredients are gluten-free).Read more ›
