Soba noodles are noodles made from buckwheat flour, and surprisingly have no actual wheat in them. This makes soba noodles safe for a gluten-free diet or those who are gluten sensitive. Soba noodles are also considered healthy pasta as they are less in calories than traditional white pasta. Because buckwheat contains antioxidants, a large amount of fiber, vitamins, minerals and more, soba noodles are a usual choice for those on a macrobiotic diet or those who are trying to watch their weight.

Examples include cold soba noodles, mixed with a homemade soba sauce, sautéed soba noodles mixed with a protein like fish or beef, and even soba noodles in ramen instead of udon noodles.
