Buckwheat is a small pyramid shaped grain which was first grown in Japan about 1,500 years ago. As Buckwheat does not possess the gluten that wheat has, the making of buckwheat only noodles is a true art. Soba served in hot broth as a noodle soup became popular in cold winters, and for variety, different ingredients were added as toppings.
Buckwheat is rich in protein, minerals and bioflavonoids, and can help strengthen capillaries. It is also good for digestion. Buckwheat contains as much vitamin B1 as brown rice and nearly twice the levels of B1 found in wheat.
