Usually used as an alternative to pasta, Shirataki noodles can be added to almost any stew, soup, stir-fry or sauce to create a hearty filling dish with virtually no calories, fat or carbohydrate… Yes you heard me right! Shirataki noodles consist of only soluble fibre and water which makes them virtually calorie, fat, sugar and carbohydrate free! And unlike most diet food products they are actually extremely good for your health.
Made from the Japanese Konjac plant, Shirataki noodles actually assist the body with weight loss by swelling up in the stomach making you feel full whilst at the same time stabilising your blood sugar levels and so preventing cravings.
