What are Konjac
Shirataki Noodles?

Shirataki noodles, as they are known in Japan, are made from Konjac, calorie free and consist of pure fiber. Thin, translucent and gelatinous, this traditional Japanese noodle is made from the root of the Konjac plant. The Japanese word "Shirataki" translates to "white waterfall" indicative of the glass like appearance of the noodles.

Shirataki noodles are a type of wet food, pre-packaged in liquid. While pure glucomannan fiber does not have any flavor, raw Konjac root flour does have a fishy odor. This is the reason why Shirataki noodles have a fishy smell.
