NOT soba noodles, but udon noodles
on August 3, 2012
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.
