I'm wondering if anyone has experience with allergy to buckwheat. Our son had a reaction to soba noodles. The reaction was minor, but he has anaphylactic allergies to tree nuts and poppy seeds, so we of course have to look into this.

Thanks very much.

Have you called the manufacturer to make sure there was no cross contamination with his known allergens and the noodles he ate?

I know of two people with a mild allergy to buckwheat. It's apparently a common allergen in Japan, where they use a lot of it for noodles etc, so much so that my sister in law who is Japanese, doesn't feed it to her daughter because she doesn't want her to develop an allergy to it. I would check with the manufacturer as well to rule out cross contamination, like spacecanada said. I hope you figure it out.
