Did you know that zero calorie gluten-free noodles exist, and they’re even good for you?
Jonathan Carp MD, the founder of Miracle Noodle, discovered the Konjac plant while visiting Japan in 2006. Konjac is a root vegetable that has been used in East Asia for thousands of years in traditional Shirataki noodles. A member of the potato family, Konjac contains a soluble fiber called glucomannan, and has the highest molecular weight and consistency of any known dietary fiber. Konjac also has numerous health benefits, including improved digestion, lowering blood pressure, reducing inflammation and lots more.
After Dr. Carp arrived home, he immediately set out to share this healthy high fiber discovery with his patients, and the rest of the world. Miracle Noodle was born.
Miracle Noodles and Miracle Rice are 97% water, 3% fiber (glucomannan from the Konjac plant), plus a natural calcium additive to help the noodles keep their shape. This explains how they’re calorie-free! They’re also super allergen and diabetic friendly. In fact, we first discovered them while attending at a Type 1 Diabetes Conference with our teen son.

Miracle Noodle now makes quite a few varieties of ready-to-eat noodles, including a fettuccine style, and some with added sauces and even pad thai. This does add to the calorie count, but not by much.
With zero calories, the texture of these noodles is admittedly different from your standard GF noodles, but they’re a great option for so many different diets – and they’re good for you. We’ll take it.
Miracle Noodles can be found at most Stop and Shops, Whole Foods, and on their website.
