4.0 out of 5 stars Buckwheat or Whole Wheat???, February 8, 2009
This review is from: Roland Organic Buckwheat Soba Noodles, 12.8-Ounce (Pack of 30) (Grocery)
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.

Perhaps this is a printing snafu as you mentioned...but a clue to the answer might be in looking at the ingredient label for the amount of fiber in grams. The fiber content of 100 buckwheat is higher than whole wheat I believe. That's the most important issue for me, and if you could find that out and post it in your review, it would help me to know whether or not to order this...thanks.

My package says 100% organic buckwheat noodles, not 100% buckwheat. The ingredients list shows "organic wheat flour, organic buckwheat flour, sea salt". It shows 1g of fiber per serving. Hope this helps. These are delicious!

It is important for people with a wheat and gluten issue to know what it really is wheat or buckwheat. Why are they so expensive?

"Why are they so expensive? "

Because there are thirty of them in this pack. That's about 24 pounds of soba noodles.

They are actually inexpensive...and the reason for that is that they are not 100% buckwheat or even close. They are more wheat than buckwheat, which is fairly standard.

To get nearly 100% buckwheat, try
Eden Selected, 100% Whole Buckwheat Soba, 8-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12) -- now those are expensive. They still aren't truly wheat-free as they are processed on machines that also process wheat, but for most people, that's as good as you'll get.
