All About Miracle Noodles
For many people who are considering starting the low carb diet, the thought of having to give up noodles and pasta makes them apprehensive about it. After all, pasta and noodles are commonplace in North American diets, as we tend to eat a variety of different cuisines from around the world in our day to day lives. Italian pasta and Asian noodle dishes are very popular and are some of our favourite foods. Fortunately, low carb dieters need not fear the loss of pasta and noodles from their menus thanks to Miracle Noodles, the low carb noodle alternative that our customers just love.
History of Miracle Noodles
The Miracle Noodles brand was founded by Dr. Jonathan Carp, and was inspired by a trip he took to Japan in 2006 that included a visit to a Buddhist vegetarian restaurant that was serving a unique style of Asian noodle called shirataki noodles. These noodles were different from traditional wheat-based pasta in that they were made from an ingredient called ‘konnyaku’, which is a plant-based soluble fiber also known as ‘glucomannan’.

What Makes Miracle Noodles Different?
Miracle Noodles are taking the world of low carb dieting by storm, and with good reason. They’re made very differently from traditional wheat-based pasta and noodles, which are generally avoided on the low carb diet due to their high carb counts. Since Miracle Noodles use of glucomannan as their key ingredient, they are extremely low in both carbohydrates and calories. In addition, Miracle Noodles are easy to prepare, and are available in all the most popular styles of noodles.
Varieties of Miracle Noodles
You can find different types of Miracle Noodles shirataki to suit a very wide range of pasta and noodle dishes. Here are some of the most popular styles of Miracle Noodle that our customers love to have as part of their low carb diets.
