    Anyone tried Shirataki Noodles, Low calorie, zero Carb

    Shirataki Noodles -
    zero carbs
    low calorie

    So good for those on a Keto or any diet

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shirataki_noodles

    Shirataki (白滝?, often written with the hiragana しらたき) are very low carbohydrate, low calorie, thin, translucent, gelatinous traditional Japanese noodles made from the konjac plant. The word "shirataki" means "white waterfall", describing the appearance of these noodles. Largely composed of water and glucomannan, a water-soluble dietary fiber, they have little flavor of their own.
    Shirataki noodles can be found both in dry and soft "wet" forms in Asian markets and some supermarkets. When wet, they are purchased pre-packaged in liquid. They normally have a shelf life of up to one year. Some brands may require rinsing or par-boiling as the water they are packaged in has an odor that may be unpleasant to those not accustomed to it.
    Alternatively, the noodles can be drained and dry roasted. This gets rid of the aku (bitterness). It also makes the noodles have a more pasta like consistency. Dry roasting is done by placing noodles in a non-stick skillet on high for a minute or until you hear a slight squeaking noise when moving them around. After that they are ready to be added to soup stock or have a sauce added to them.[1]
    There are two types of shirataki noodles sold in the United States. Traditional shirataki noodles have zero net carbohydrates, no food energy, and no gluten, and they are useful for those on low-carbohydrate diets.[2] Tofu-based shirataki-style noodles are becoming increasingly popular in U.S. supermarkets and health food stores. They have a much shorter shelf life and require refrigeration even before opening. Tofu-based noodles contain a minimal amount of carbohydrates.[3]

    It. Looks. Disgusting. Why would anyone want to eat something that has low carbs and low cals like that? Especially anyone on this forum. Plus I can't see this being very satiating at all.

    FMJ easy people on a keto or low calorie diet look for something to add texture to the meals, this is where this stuff works.

    The doo look like a bag of brains when they arrive tho.

    Great for Keto/Low carb diet as they can bulk out your chicken meals, good for stirfrys.
