There were a few discussions on this in the past. A search of this board will turn them up.

You also need to make sure you drink plenty of water when you eat these noodles.

find out if made from mung beans or other
if exclusively from rice, then check upon your list......rice is rice, right?
unless, wheat or corn starch or potato is added to the mix

I mostly look away from anything with miracle for a title

What is the brand name of this noodle?  I'd like to know what is in them.

watch out for Tapioca starch! It is in so many rice noodle products.

Is it worse for you to eat this tapioca starch or to eat regular semolina pasta? My daughter was wondering and I couldnt answer knowledgeably.

They are called miracle noodles and contain the following:

Ingredients: Water, glucomannan (soduble fiber), calcium additive.

They are tasteless.  Tried them once a long time ago and that was it.  They are supposed to be just fiber but some people have an awful time with constipation after eating the noodles.  I am not sure why they are so popular.

Rice is a healthier choice, I think.

Semolina is a black dot. So working it in to the diet, I would think that it would be better to have that than anything with tapioca in it even if it is a gluten free product. right???

Where's policy checker - he would know!

Anyone eating these? They sound interesting but two things would/do bother me - they are from Japan... (radiation effects?) & the fact that they smell funny until *dealt with*?

I've eaten them.  If you rinse them well before eating them, they're tasteless; if you don't rinse them enough, they taste like rotten fish   I would have no issue with them, but I'm a texture person when it comes to food (I could never eat jello or pudding) and they're just too slimy for me.

My daughter ate these once, when a hostess was trying to be accomodating by providing a gluten-free option for her. They gave her horrible gas/bloating/indigestion- she would have been better off eating the wheat pasta (since she has no obvious reactions to wheat) than this stuff.

She was extra dissapointed when I explained to her that this product is so unhealthy- it wasn't even enjoyable to her!

Thank You for all the responses,they just went on sale at 40%off, but after reading this, I hesitate to even try them.  

I think I will allow a not quite compliant paste into my life once in awhile, compared to spending a lot of money to try something that might have radiation in it/or that it taste like nothing or too fishy to enjoy and may cause discomfort after eating.

The food is unrated.

Some would treat it as neutral because there is nothing to suggest it beneficial or an avoid. Then try it an see how their body reacts to it.

I would tend to look at knojac as have characteristics of a gum. I would therefore look at the rating for guar, mastic, arabic, carrageenan, agar-agar,  gelatin, and fruit pectin and see if there was a trend in the rating for gummy substances.




In contrast to the comments here. Other places you will find strong claims for the health benefit of this product.

We ate a lot of Japanese food a few years ago and at that time I tried the shiritaki (konjak, "miracle noodles", and some other names).  Yes, they do smell fishy and do need to be rinsed well.  No, they don't have any taste.  And the texture is strange also.  In short, one time was enough.  


6 years on ER BTD, went from sick and dying to healthier And 30 pounds slimmer.
