Konjaku or shirataki noodles, also known as ‘zero noodles’ have caught the eye of healthy eaters and 5:2 diet enthusiasts across the World for their exceptionally low calorie content. But they’re more than just a diet food, and have long been a staple in Asian cooking. Made from the root of the Konjac plant, these noodles have a translucent appearance and a firmer, chewier texture, especially compared to egg and wheat noodles.
