What's the Difference Between Miracle Noodle and Regular Pasta?
Miracle Noodles and Miracle Rice are Shirataki noodles, and have been enjoyed in Japan for over 1,400 years.
That’s where I discovered them. And in 2006 I introduced this guilt-free noodle to the USA.
Made from the Konjac plant, Miracle Noodle and Miracle Rice are 97% water and 3% soluble fiber – called glucomannan -- (plus a natural calcium additive to help the noodles keep their shape). That’s it!
The top health benefits of daily Miracle Noodles or rice.
Glucomannan is a highly viscous, soluble fiber. It’s thick and sticky – and the stickiness is what makes it so healthful. Think honey vs water.
As it moves through your digestive system, the thickness slows it down, delaying nutrient absorption and helping you feel full. This slow journey means it’s also absorbing more beneficial nutrients from the other foods in your meal.
And, according to a double-blind study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, patients who were given glucomannan daily (vs placebo) saw a 10% decrease in total cholesterol, 7.2% decrease in LDL cholesterol, 23% decrease in triglycerides, and 2.5% reduction in systolic blood pressure (the amount of pressure in your arteries during contraction of your heart muscle).1**
Every meal helps you feel full fast and tastes delicious!
As you may know, soluble fiber is essential for weight loss. But the problem with soluble fiber is that the most common sources of fiber are oat bran, oatmeal, beans, peas, rice bran, barley, citrus fruits, strawberries and apple pulp. Eating these can lead to weight gain because they’re also high in carbohydrates.
The fiber in Miracle Noodle, Miracle Rice, and our Ready-To-Eat meals not only slows your digestion and prolongs the sensation of fullness, it has virtually no calories and no carbohydrates.
Finally, you’ll enjoy pasta-style dishes and rice…without worrying about calories and carbs!
A meal that helps balance blood sugar? Yes!
Glucose is a sugar that circulates in your blood. High carbohydrate foods, like regular pasta, rice, grains, etc., have a high glycemic index – they are rapidly digested and cause substantial fluctuations in your blood sugar. When you eat them you suddenly have lots of energy…and just as suddenly, you crash.
The glucomannan in Miracle Noodle, Miracle Rice, and Ready-To-Eat Meals, slows down your absorption of glucose, helping your blood sugar even out so you won’t have spikes of energy and exhaustion.
In fact, a study published in Diabetes Care confirmed that a diet rich in high-viscosity Konjac plant glucomannan, “improves glycemic control and lipid profile.
