Japanese konnyaku-based noodles provide high fiber, low calorie, low carbohydrate meals for dieters
(1888PressRelease) May 02, 2010 - Washington, DC - HCGSupplies.com, a leading online retailer of HCG supplies, accessories and mixing kits, has introduced a revolutionary natural food product that helps dieters easily reduce their carbohydrate and calorie intakes while boosting soluble fiber intake. Japanese Shirataki noodles are made from the konjac plant and can substitute in just about any noodle recipe. HCGSupplies.com, known as a resource for information on HCG for weightloss and for the Kevin Trudeau weight loss cure, has begun offering these "miracle noodles" to enable customers to enjoy the benefits of this naturally healthful food source.
The konjac, (or "konnyaku" in Japanese) is a plant native to warm subtropical to tropical eastern Asia. Cultivated in India, China, Korea and Japan, the plant produces a starchy, yam-like corm, or stem which is harvested to make konjac flour and jelly. This revolutionary food has actually been a common ingredient in Asian cuisines for long time, valued for its unique gelatin-like texture and transparent flavor.
Known stateside as "miracle noodles" for their exceptional healthful properties, these konjac-based "shirataki" are very high in naturally water soluble fiber and make for a satisfying, substantial meal, despite containing zero net carbohydrates and calories. Shirataki noodles are also Kosher and completely free of wheat and gluten.
But besides boasting extremely low carbohydrate and calorie content, konjac primarily consists of soluble fiber, which acts to slow digestion thus allowing the slower absorption of glucose. Slow digestion also prolongs the sensation of fullness and promotes the absorption of nutrients, which makes konjac a very useful staple for dieters. For example replacing just one meal per day with shirataki noodles will significantly raise a person's fiber intake while dramatically lowering total caloric intake. This simple substitution along with moderate exercise can effectively raise metabolic rate.
Hence, the noodles are increasingly popular in numerous diets including low-carb, gluten-free, heart-healthy and body-building regimens. Medical studies have also shown foods made from konjac to be of particular benefit to people sufferers of type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and constipation.
Foods made from konjac are not only gaining renown among dieters but also gourmets and food enthusiasts looking for novelty in their home cooking. Shirataki noodles readily absorb the flavors of any dish, soup or sauce, which allows them to be easily incorporated into favorite recipes.
The noodles take only a minute to cook in boiling water and come in a variety of shapes to substitute for just about any pasta or noodle. Angel hair is currently the most popular style of shirataki, which also comes in a variety of pasta shapes including fettucini and rigatoni. Konjac flour, which is sold in 17 oz bags, can be used in place of corn starch as a thickener for soups and sauces and as a healthful fiber-rich additive to baking recipes.
