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.
