Soba, Japanese buckwheat noodles, are the traditional Japanese fast food, developed centuries ago as the perfect instant meal. They're light and digestible in summer, heartily warming in winter, and deliciously satisfying at any time of day. Like many of Japan's traditional foods, behind its image of utter simplicity, soba has been a tradition for centuries steeped in the lore of regional areas. Sakurai Noodle Company is located in Nagano, the heart of the land once known as Shinano, and recognized widely as the "home of soba." Mitoku Organic 100% Soba is the only buckwheat pasta made without any wheat flour or other binding agents. Made entirely of whole organic buckwheat flour that is freshly milled for each batch, this traditional soba is wonderfully hearty and deeply satisfying. This is a gluten-free pasta, full of flavor and natural goodness. Serve in hot shoyu or miso-seasoned broth, in stews, or pasta salads. Unlike conventional sobas; Mitoku 100% soba noodles do not contain any wheat gluten and therefore should be cooked gently. Soba tastes best when served with a dipping broth on the side with kizami nori or wasabi, in hot broth topped with tempura or vegetables, or served fried in yakisoba. The Soba is certified kosher by the OK Kosher Certification. For more information visit: www.mitoku.com.
