Shirataki Noodles: What’s the Deal with Them, Anyway?
You heard about shirataki noodles on occasion and probably wondered what’s the deal about them. Zero-calorie noodles? Isn’t that impossible? Not if you’re a shirataki noodle.
You see, shirataki noodles are made with root fiber. They’re essentially 97% water and 3% glucomannan fiber, and Chef Nikky loves them! We serve them at Asian Mint during March as one of our seasonal specialty dishes.
We also do that to honor National Noodle Month because what could be better than healthy, magical noodles?
Since they possess zero carbs, you’ll find them bland when eaten alone. Then again, why eat shirataki noodles bland when you can taste them in different dishes in Asian Mint?
