Soba is loaded with nutrition.
Full of nutrition, soba provides support for our bodies.
Rich in Vitamin B1 & B2
Among other things, soba stimulates the appetite and helps prevent stomatitis, chapped lips, hair loss, and hang nails.
Rich in Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B 5)
Soba contains nearly 4 times as much Vitamin B5 as white rice, 2.6 mg vs. 0.7 mg.
Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) is an essential nutrient found in hormones that is effective for fighting fatigue and inflammation.
Vitamin B5 deficiency can contribute to such things as stomach ulcers, fatigue, headaches, and heart palpitations.
High Quality Protein
Compared to other cereal grains and noodles, soba has an ideal nutritional balance and
is loaded with essential amino acids, including lysine, tryptophan, methionine, and the non-essential amino acid cysteine.
Among cereal grains, soba is especially rich in the amino acid cysteine.
Cystiene is effective at maintaining liver vitality and aids in restoring liver function and recovery from hangovers. It also plays an important role in synthesizing proteins.
In addition, foods such as white rice and ramen can be deficient in vitamin B1 and B2, and minerals such as niacin, calcium, iron, magnesium, all things abundant in soba.
Soba and sake go great together!
Consuming alcohol depletes the body of such things as vitamin B5 and niacin, things soba is rich in. So even after an evening of eating soba and drinking delicious sake, the next morning you should be in fine shape.
