Chang’s Super Lo-Cal Wok-Ready Noodles are 100% fat-free, low-GI and gluten-free. No fat, no protein, no carbs; just fibre.
They are made from the soluble fibre of the konjac root which has been used in Asian cooking for many centuries. Ideal to add to a soup, stir-fry or even use instead of pasta for a low carbohydrate alternative. As they just need refreshing in hot water, they’re quick and convenient to use. How about using them in a salad for something different?
Konjac root is composed of water and fibre. It can be ground into flour, boiled and shaped into a substitute for wheaten pasta or rice noodles. For instance, the Japanese traditionally make konnyaku or shirataki noodles by mixing konjac flour with water and limewater (calcium hydroxide). Konjac is an ideal food when it comes to satiety (feeling full). Glucomannan will increase up to 200 times of its original volume after absorbing water. This leads to the sensation of feeling full after consuming Konjac derived foods. Konjac also has the function of supplementing calcium, balancing salinity, cleaning stomach, clearing up intestine, and removing toxin inside body. Konjac can lower LDL cholesterol and blood sugar. Not only do the nutritional benefits of Konjac foods assist in a positive diet, consuming this dietary fibre can help you lose weight.
