What's the SOBA NOODLE

Soba noodles are native Japanese noodles made from buckwheat. At Azuma we make our soba handmade from scratch everyday, and provide customers with an option to choose noodle por- tions up to 300 grams. Normally, one protion is 100 grams, and thus customers can choose up to 3 portions at the same price making it healthy and fulfilling all the same time

Health Benefits of Buckwheat

・ Decreases cholesterol

・ Lowers blood pressure

・ Reduces fat accumulation

・ Promotes healthy bowel movements

・ Fits a well-balanced and low-calorie diet

Nutritionally buckwheat provides vitamins B1 and B2, several minerals, and nearly twice the amount of proteins found in rice. Rutin, a kind of bioflavonoid is also contained in great quantity in buckwheat. It is said that an intake of 30mg of Rutin is ideal for a healthy daily diet, but soba contains 100mg of Rutin per 100g of buckwheat. This bioflavonoid strengthens capillaries and so helps people suffering from arteriosclerosis and high blood pressure. Recent studies indicate that rutin is also a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals, which are responsible for many cancers
