Has anyone had a chance to try these noodles?
What is so wonderful about them?
Shirataki noodles are supposed to be high in fiber and low in carbs!
As an alternative for wheat flour based noodles, these noodles are supposed to be a diabetics best friend.
Why do I say supposed?
Because I haven't had the chance to try them yet, but I will.
I love the recipes that I have seen for them, and I can't wait to try some of them (as well as posting some in the recipe section here at Diabetic Connect).
(*) Shirataki noodles have almost no flavor, yet they absorb the flavor of the sauces and spices in any dish!
The noodles are translucent and made from the powdered root of the Asian Konjac Yam which consist mainly of a no-calorie, highly soluble fiber called Glucomannan.
Glucomannan helps lower bad LDL cholesterol, triglycerides,fasting blood sugar and even body weight!
One gram of Glucomannan has the power to significantly slow the absorption of sugar into your blood stream.
