Imagine sitting down to a large pasta dish without feeling any of the guilt that comes from eating a high calorie or high carbohydrate meal. Now you can do just that – with the introduction of the Miracle Noodle. Miracle Noodle is the brand name for shirataki pasta, an amazing noodle that has no calories, no carbohydrates, no gluten and no soy. Miracle Noodle comes in angel hair, fettuccini, rice, and other varieties. Sounds too good to be true, which is why they are called a miracle!
So what makes these noodles so amazing? Miracle noodles are shirataki noodles, which is made from the root of a plant called the kinnyaku imo or konjac. The tuber plant is native to Asia, and the benefits of using it in the diet has been known for thousands of years in China and Japan. Because shirataki is made from only the soluble fiber of the konjac, and as such it only contains a healthy soluble fiber known as glucomannan.
Because the miracle noodles are made from soluble fiber, they are extremely low in calories and carbohydrates. The fiber content also helps to regulate cholesterol levels and metabolic conditions such as insulin resistance and diabetes. Soluble fiber slows digestion, therefore lowering the absorption of glucose in the body. The slower digestion also allows you to feel fuller for a longer period of time, which helps with weight loss programs.
One important thing to understand is that they don’t taste like conventional or whole grain wheat noodles. Actually, Miracle Noodles have very little taste at all. This is great as the noodles will take on whatever sauce or flavor that you pair them with. We enjoy them at EMC2Health.com office with traditional tomato based pasta sauce, and a grilled protein. We also enjoy pairing them with alfredo sauce and thai peanut sauce.
How Do You Prepare The Miracle Noodles?
Miracle Noodles come in a BPA-free plastic package, already cooked and almost ready to eat. You should rinse them for 2-3 minutes, and then boil in hot water if you choose. The noodles hold quite a bit of water, so you also may want to dry them by allowing to drain. We like to rinse in hot water, then rinse in cold water, then squeeze the water out with our hands. The noodles are then put into a bowl and are ready to top with our favorite sauce, or used in a recipe.
These miracle noodles are great if you:
-are allergic to soy, wheat or gluten
-are looking for a product with no fat, sugar or starch
-are following a low carbohydrate diet
