Want The Skinny On A Miracle Noodle?

 The Calorie Free, Wheat Free, Gluten Free "Miracle Noodle"

100% vegetarian, vegan and kosher. Can it get any better? Absoultely!

Konjac has  been known and used in Asia for over two thousand years.  It is known as Moyu or Juruo in China, and Konnyaku or Shirataki in Japan.

Shirataki  is very low carbohydrate, low calorie, thin, translucent, gelatinous traditional Japanese noodle. The word "shirataki" means "white waterfall", describing the appearance of these noodles. Shirataki noodles are largely composed of water and glucomannan.

Glucomannan is a Japanese plant fiber from the konjac root, a type of yam. This water-soluble dietary fiber has been touted as the weight loss "Miracle Noodle"

The  soluble fiber  absorbs several times its weight in water and forms a gel in the stomach, giving a feeling of fullness and satiety. The delay in gastric emptying slows the release of sugar into the bloodstream, which helps to lower levels of insulin and blood glucose. 

These fabulous "Miracle Noodles" don't require cooking! Simply tip from the sachet, rinse thoroughly, and then use with your favourite pasta or noodle recipes! The noodles themselves have little taste of their own but will absorb ALL the flavors they are mixed or cooked with.

~Comfort food without the guilt and calories~

If you have any health concerns such as; diabetes, pre-diabetes, insulin-resistance problems, raised cholesterol, or digestive problems like constipation I encourage you to try "Miracle Noodles"

Abundant Health,
