Allrighty! I decided to try this for a number of reasons. First of all, it seems WAY too good to be true. It has no calories, no fat, no net carbs, no soy and no gluten. That sums up about everything I take into consideration when eating!
I am rating this product ♥♥♥ with a score of 14 out of 20.
Appearance: At first glance this product looks like clear ramen noodles! After rinsing, it did not appear to be sticky or slimy.
Flavor: This product has no flavor at all. None. When the package was first opened it had a little odor…..I can’t describe it…..it was not unpleasant or spoiled smelling, but different and not what I expected. The odor disappeared when it was rinsed.
Texture: Firm. It was very moist and did not hold the sauce very well.
Price: Reasonable. I purchased this at my local Jewel store, which is usually a bit higher than other stores, and it was just under $3.00 for this 8 oz bag.
This was my first experience with a shirataki noodle. Overall it was not bad, I would purchase and use it again.
The directions on the package say drain and rinse. In checking their website, they recommend placing the noodles in a dry skillet and “dry fry” them to evaporate the liquid after you have rinsed and drained them. This would have been good information to have BEFORE I actually tried the product. It would have helped the sauce stick. I’m not sure why they don’t have this on the package!! I will try this next time.
This noodle would be wonderful in soups and casseroles or with some stir fried veggies. I also think this noodle would be great in any type of dish because it has absolutely NO flavor and would take on the flavors of whatever you are cooking. If you try this, check their website. There are all sorts of recipes including desserts…….
A fair warning to you. This product is fiber……don’t be alarmed when you see it later….. 😉
Live and LOVE gluten-free!
