    • It’s been a staple in Japan for years.  Shirataki is thin, translucent gelatin-like noodles made from a yam plant. No nutritional value, but it’s good for you if that makes sense. It looks like pasta, but it’s not and by itself it’s bland and chewy.  It’s usually cooked with sugar and soy sauce and meat and veggies can be added too just like sukiyaki.  When at the Asian store I buy the prepared one and I like it. I’ve also had it as a mayo-based salad.

    • The reason I asked is because David Zinczenko writer of Eat this Not That was on the Talk and shared some information about them.  Sounds like they have found ways to make them more ‘pasta like’ in taste & texture.  They are made from Plant Fiber but have no Calories so suppose to be a great healthy food.

      I found a site miraclenoodle that has a bit of info and sells them but I was hoping someone might be able to give some info.  Must be pretty good since most of his on the site he was sold out of... happy

      I THINK I have had them when we were in Japan but when you eat so many different noodles you don’t remember what is what...lol  But I did love pretty much all the Japanese noodles so I assume they tasted good...lol

      Based on what the Zinczenko said and this web site you can use them in most of your pasta dishes as a replacement.  I am going to try to find them in the store.  If I can’t I will order some online.  When I try them I will let you know!  Would love to know if anyone else tries them as well.

    • If they have no nutritional value, is the point to just fill up the tummy?

    • Actually they are suppose to be a good source of fiber (not sure of anything else).
