Zero calorie noodles: Shirataki noodles

Shirataki noodles are a versatile pasta or noodle replacement, nonwheat of course, made from the konjac root. This plant is rich in glucomannan, which is a very water-absorbent fiber.

This noodle is popular in Asian cuisine. Shirataki noodles are almost zero-calorie and zero carb. They’re 97% water, 3% fiber, and have traces of protein, fat and calcium and they can be used as part of a healthy low-carb diet.
They exert virtually no effect on blood sugar, since shirataki noodles are low-carbohydrate (3 grams or less per ounce package). Some shirataki noodles have added tofu and have a less chewy more wheat pasta-like texture.

Shirataki noodles are translucent and sort of gelatinous, very different from the normal noodles.
