Soba noodles are made from buckwheat and are a great option for a Candida-safe eating plan. Pairing soba noodles with vegetables and a low-toxin fish like anchovies makes for a delicious meal.
Read the label carefully to make sure you don’t buy a brand that contains wheat. Many cheaper brands of soba noodles contain wheat, which means they are not gluten-free.
There is now plenty of evidence to suggest that glutenous foods can negatively affect gut health (and overall health!) of people who are not Celiac. If you want to maintain a healthy gut and recover from Candida, make sure to buy soba noodles that are 100% buckwheat.
Many people don’t realize that buckwheat isn’t a grain (it’s a fruit that’s often known as a pseudo-grain). Soba noodles are a tasty gluten-free alternative to your regular pasta. You can also use buckwheat flour in your baking, and it works great when combined with coconut flour or almond flour.
