I bought a package of your organic buckwheat soba. I was disappointed to see that these noodles were as white as spaghetti; not the dark color of buckwheat. when I complained to your company in Australia, I was told this product is 70% wheat flour and 30% buckwheat. I consider this deceptive and false advertising.
