Low FODMAP Chicken Yakisoba Noodles is an adaptation of the Japanese stir-fried Soba noodles. Yakisoba began cropping up in the food stalls in Japan in the early 20th century. While Soba means “buckwheat,” many found in restaurants actually use wheat based noodles. So make sure you are buying 100% buckwheat soba noodles like King Soba 3-PACK Gluten Free & Organic 100% Buckwheat Pasta Noodles.
For variation, you can replace the chicken with shrimp, pork or beef.
Benefits of Low FODMAP Chicken Yakisoba Noodles
Contrary to its name, buckwheat is not a wheat nor a cereal grain. It is actually a fruit seed related to rhubarb and sorrel and is gluten free and FODMAP friendly. Buckwheat is known to lower cholesterol and high blood pressure. It is a rich source of flavonoids, magnesium and vitamin B. It is also believed to lower blood glucose and insulin responses, making it a good choice for those with diabetes.
