Our Commitment

Organic Buckwheat

Kaz's buckwheat is made from organic buckwheat flour produced by contract farmers in Linneus, Maine.

Linneus is located at 47 degrees north latitude, which is  in the middle of the wilderness, close to the Canadian border. Our variety is ‘Kitawase’ originally from Hokkaido, Japan, and it is prized for its superior qualities in soba noodle production.

Kaz's soba is characterized by their aroma and their smoothness.


The grind

Since the texture and aroma of buckwheat noodles vary depending on how the buckwheat is ground, Kaz uses only stone-ground buckwheat flour, which is ground at a slow rotation rate of about 18 revolutions per minute. We also sift the stone-ground buckwheat flour through a rough mesh to create a more aromatic buckwheat flour.


There are three most essential factors in making delicious soba noodles." Freshly ground," "Freshly made", and "Freshly boiled". 

To make this happen, we obtain freshly-ground buckwheat directly from the producer and adjust the ratio of buckwheat and water according to the subtle differences in temperature and humidity every day to provide our customers with the best quality soba.



Buckwheat helps control blood sugar levels, making it a healthy choice for people with type 2 diabetes. What's more, it may boost heart health by improving blood pressure and your blood lipid profile. These are proved by NIH and other credible organization's researches.
