Shirataki, a traditional Japanese food, is an ultimate gluten-free, low calorie noodle substitute. Made from Konnyaku or Konjac, an Asian yam, these noodles are low in carbs, making them great for those who are diabetic, watching their weight, or have gluten sensitivity. We offer several kinds of Shirataki noodles, each type offering its own benefits. While they can be used interchangeably in recipes depending on one's preference, the texture varies among the noodles. Traditional Shirataki noodles have a bit of a snap to them, while Tofu Shirataki is slightly chewier. Smart Noodle is similar in texture to whole wheat pasta.
