Is Kamonegi's soba gluten free?
Buckwheat is gluten free. The earliest form of soba is made from 100 percent buckwheat, but we use a traditional nihachi ratio of 80 percent buckwheat and 20 percent all purpose flour to ensure that our noodles have a proper yield and buoyancy.
80% Buckwheat Flour (aka "soba ko") 20% All purpose flour.
Our soba is great for those looking for a low gluten diet. We cook our noodles in unsalted boiling water and use our sauces to flavor the noodles without overshadowing the earthy, nutty taste that buckwheat brings to our noodles.
