I am Japanese and I love Soba noodles. In Japan, most common soba noodles are made of 80%-100% buckwheat. Buckwheat has very distictive aroma, texture, and taste.
This product is obviously not soba noodles. The ingredients say whole wheat and buckwheat but it must be mostly wheat. I did not smell or taste buckwheat almost at all. Texture is much like that of udon, which is wheat based noodle.
This is whole wheat udon noodles, not soba, the buckwheat noodles.

How on earth does this product pass any of the organic certifications when they can't even get it right as to what the contents of the package are?

The front of the Roland Soba package states "100% buckwheat". The list of ingredients on the back states "100% whole wheat". So, is this another typical snafu in Chinese products?

Never-the-less, the noodles are great.

i'm not sure what the customary whole wheat to buckwheat ratio is, but this tastes superb, and cooks in 5 minutes on low boil, almost hate to boil the water. i keep it in my pantry always

Just baught a pack of Roland organic Buckwheat soba noodles at Publix grocery, I wanted to try something new. I did not study the back label until I got home. The first ingredient is organic whole wheat, organic buckwheat and sea salt. Packed exclusively for American Roland Food Corp. Product of China. I did like the taste and texture, it cooks fast. I too am iffy about "product of China". Not sure if the wheat and buckwheat came from China or is it just packaged in China. Tasted good though. Not sure if I will buy this brand again. I will search for buckwheat noodles made in USA.

Typically love Roland products, but found the rec to douse them in cold water to cause the noodles to clump and taste borderline awful. I'd never consider buying 30 of these, and even the 1 package I purchased was hard to stomach.

False advertising - this is not 100% Soba noodles. The label on a back states the first ingredient as "organic wheat flour".
Roland, please don't lie to us. Reputation is easy to destroy, not so easy to build back.
