Hey all,.

I am going to ask Nutrition about this...But for everyone who has ordered from, this is the information on their version of "flour," which is made from the same stuff that the noodles are made of. It would seem if we can eat the noodles we can eat this. Has anyone tried this yet? Hmmmmm....this might be a good answer to changing the texture of the muffins and making some kind of bread too. At the very least it's something that we can use to thicken soups and stews. AND NO CARBS!!!.

Konjac glucomannan flour 17.6oz per bag is pure soluble fiber, no fat, no sugar, no starch, it is also gluten free and wheat free. Just dissolve a teaspoon in water for 5 grams of fiber or use it as a thickening agent like you would use starch!.

The Perfect Fiber Addition!!.

1 bag - 17.6 oz of The Perfect Fiber Addition! $19.99 plus $5.00 S&H.

2 bags - each 17.6 oz of The Perfect Fiber Addition! $36.99 plus $5.00 S&H (Free Shipping plus discount for the second bag).

How to use Konjac Glucomannan flour.

Use it as a thickener as you would corn starch, one teaspoon acts more like 10 teaspoons of corn starch..

Add to gravy or soup or cooking sauces as a thickening agent without calories, without carbs, just added soluble fiber which your body needs. The question is why would you ever use corn starch again when you can use Konjac Glucomannan flour and get added fiber without any carb addition..

When baking bread or cookies, add one teaspoon of Konjac Glucomannan flour to 2 cups wheat flour.

Or dissolve in water to use as a fiber supplement..

By the way, I have noticed that sells Glucomannan pills/supplements for a very low price and are for weight loss. I think the theory is that this fiber really fills you up (like the noodles) and prevents you from absorbing a lot of fat...

I've thought of using it as a thickener for sauces/gravies/soups, but hadn't for baking. Might be worth a try..

There was someone (I forget who) that did order the flour. Don't know if they've used it yet or not...

Comment #2

I've had good luck with a product called NotStarch, which is also very low in carbs, but I don't know if it is appropriate for the weight loss phase. 1 tsp. has 2.3 carbs but you don't need to use much. Here's some info on it..


Comment #3

Thanks Robyn. I wish I would also get a response from the person who bought the Miraclenoodle flour. The noodles are so odd I am wondering what the flour would be like...

Comment #4

I used to do low carb. There was a discussion group that had tried the Konjac noodles ( same as Miracle noodles). They tried the flour as a thickener and NO one liked it. Thay all liked the Thick Thin not/Starch it has 2.3 total carbs for 1 teaspoon. All of the carbs are fiber. You only need alittle bit to thcken a sauce or gravy.


Comment #5

Xanthum gum is a good thickener. you can make a cauliflower sort of rissoto with it. I'll have to figure out how to make it M F friendly...

Comment #6

Thanks for that guys. Sorry the others didn't like the miracle noodle flour. Hmmmm, there has to be something we can do. Eventually in my lifetime I would like to figure out gravy and not get fat over it...

Comment #7

I did try the miracle noodle powder. It worked really well with chicken broth for a gravy, but it congeals almost instantly. They recommend that you add it to a small amount of water, then pour that into what you want to thicken. I ended up scooping out little jelly pellets from the first mixture before I poured it into my chicken broth. That being said, it was nice to have gravy!..

Comment #8

Rhonda, thanks. Someone else here said others tried it and it was gross. However, I think I have to buy some just to check it out...

Comment #9

I think that's what the notStarch is made from...
