The super low carb, high fiber noodles — Shirataki noodles

Posted 9th June 2017

Are you on a carb-free diet? Time to put Shirataki noodles in your list. According to Dr. Mercola, it is a low net carb food, containing about 97 percent water and 3 percent fiber, zero calories, and no digestible carbs.

They’re long, white, and translucent noodles. sometimes referred to as konjac noodles or miracle noodles. They’re made from glucomannan fiber from the root of the konjac plant (aka devil’s tongue yam). As explained by Authority Nutrition:

“Glucomannan is a highly viscous fiber. Viscous fiber is a type of soluble fiber, and one of its main characteristics is the ability to absorb water and form a gel. In fact, glucomannan can absorb up to 50 times its weight in water, as reflected in shirataki noodles’ extremely high water content.

These noodles move through the digestive system very slowly, which helps you feel full and delays nutrient absorption into the bloodstream. In addition, viscous fiber functions as a prebiotic. It nourishes the bacteria living in your colon, also known as the gut flora or microbiome.”
