I rinsed it for a few min. then put it in a pan with evoo, a tsp. almond butter, chopped onion and garlic, tamari, bits of mint leaf, parsley, basil (just bits from the garden).....and heated it up. Heck! Not bad at all! Anyone else eating this?

Since you are an O Im guessing this Miracle Noodle is a neutral for O's?  I read the link and find it very interesting, but does it really have NO calories?  does anyone know if this noodle is recommended by Dr. D or any of his books?

I'm with you...too soft for a noodle.  A little slimy. I was hungry an hour after I ate them.

Well, now have questions because the noodles I tried aren't the first ones listed on this
page....the ones made from glucomannan.....the ones without any calories at all.

I tried the Shirikati noodles which come from some kind of yam...and the liquid in them smelled
really funky if not washed off completely.

SO, I'm a bit confused about which noodles we're talking about or if we're all talking about the
same noodles.

the gluccomannin ones have no calories...they are also called shirataki, but some of them are made with tofu...those are not the ones I had.
No wonder you were still hungry...they have no calories. (I found this too....)
they smell yucky until you rinse them thouroughly.....then nothing.

And now the big question is this:  Are the ingredients compliant for either diet?  BTD or
GTD?

Kojac root is what the no calorie noodles are made from.

It is my opinion that konjac is very ok for my gatherer self. it is sometimes called yam noodle in Japan, and the word yam is a good one in my food list.....

Miracle noodles are different than cellophane noodles.
Cellophane noodles are made from mung beans, potatoes, or canna.

Starch is the major component of cellophane noodles so they have calories.

The major component of miracle noodles is fiber so they have almost no calories.

Okay to eat?-Superfood for Explorers and neutral for gatherer, warriors, and nomads

Technically a neutral. Based on how it is treated in GTD I would treat it as an avoid for secretor O and secretor A. Just my take.

Hunter's are O's also. Explorers are predominantly nonnies. When a large percentage of the O secretor population should avoid it, I would treat it as an O secretor avoid. Same rationale for type A secretors. B's and all nonnies should be fine, it could be viewed as a nonnie beneficial since they are largely explorers, B's, or GT2/GT5.

No problem. As a GT2, there is no reason for you to avoid it, as you are following that system anyhow, I believe...

konjac is a fearful looking plant...."devil's tongue", "voodoo lily"....whoa, baby! I think you can see it on Chloe's link above...

Konnyaku, Devils Tongue Lily {Amorphophallus konjac - Araceae}

Its got nothing to do with a Yam - This has come up before. Lets just say the asian word for it doesn't readily translate to Engrish.
Additionally, the Sweet Potato noodles typically have some of this Glucomannan added to it, even if its not listed on the ingredients, if bought at the asian market.

There are 2 kinds from the asina market of Shirataki noodles - THe all white ones & some are brownish with specks of seaweed.
Not too into the white ones. If you ever get to Japan or Korea you would soon learn the glories of the noodles over other ways that it is served.
As stated not very filling - They are more commonly eaten in summer. Sometimes with a splash of vinegar.
