Soba Benefits

Soba is made with buckwheat flour and is a very healthy alternative to wheat flour. Soba restaurants offer different types of soba noodles, from 50% to 100% buckwheat flour.
Buckwheat flour is healthy because it is a good source of nutrients, such as thiamin, iron, fiber, protein, and manganese.
Manganese is important for bone health and it also helps support the nervous system.
Thiamin (Vitamin B1) is good for healthy cell growth and function.
Since soba is high in protein it keeps you full longer! And it helps to build muscle, as well as maintaining and repairing cells in the body.
Soba contains less sugar than white wheat flour, so it doesn't make you blood sugar level spike.

So if those aren't good enough reasons to eat healthily and incorporate soba in your diet, I don't know what is!
Check out the soba salad recipe to know how to make a quick and healthy meal!
