Good question. Konjac is a plant that grows in East Asia. For the noodles we use the flour, which mainly consists of fibres. This absorbs a lot of water and then becomes a bit gel-like. Than you can make these miracle noodles. Konjac fills and satisfies hunger, even though it contains almost no calories. Ideal for losing weight.
The noodle is known for a fishy smell, but we selected our konjac spaghetti for its neutral taste.
Konjac noodles are originally eaten in very spicy Asian dishes. Because of this you usually come across konjac as a noodle. But you can cook much more delicious things with it. We made konjac spaghetti and tagliatelle. You can use it as the basis for a delicious pasta dish or a traditional noodle dish. You choose!
