In addition to the numerous health benefits, eating lots of fiber-rich foods (like shirataki noodles) can help you lose weight. Fiber itself has no calories and is passed through your digestive system intact. However, because fiber absorbs water, it provides a "full" feeling. For example, eating an apple (which is rich in fiber) is more filling than drinking 4 ounces of apple juice, even though both forms contain an identical number of calories. Foods high in fiber also often require more chewing, which makes it more difficult for you to consume a large number of calories in a short period of time.

Some evidence suggests that glucomannan in any form may help weight loss, since it absorbs a lot of water and occupies space in your stomach, which leads to the feeling of being full. In one study, where obese adults were given one gram of glucomannan with a cup of water one hour before each meal for eight weeks, average weight loss was reported to be 5.5 pounds (source). In another study, healthy men were given 3.9 grams of glucomannan daily for four weeks, which resulted in decreased total cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides (Source).

It is even an accepted fact at a European level, as according to the Commission Regulation No 432/2012 of the European Union, glucomannan aids weight loss as well as keeping blood cholesterol concentrations at normal levels if taken in the amount of 4 gr a day, in three portions of 1 gr each minimum. It is important to take it with plenty of water to ensure the substance reaches stomach.

Excellent support. Fast delivery. Low carb. Products are high quality (dried instead of preserved in liquid), very delicious and have the perfect texture when prepared as stated. Taste / texture can be compared with glass noodles (in my opinion). Thumbs up and 5+ stars :-) Keep going!

Delicious food and super helpful staff. There are some food intolerances in my family and the team was spot on to advise us with our order.

OK this company is amazing. I purchased the konjak rice. I'm on a keto diet so thought this would be perfect for me. It was amazing ! Easy to cook and honestly the closest thing to actual rice I've tried so far. And I've tried alot of products. Egg fried rice is my favourite dish because frying the konjak rice makes it that bit more crispier and rice like. Anyway, delivery was fast, Communication too. The only thing I would say is that they should provide the booklet that is also delivered, in English as well as German.. for those who don't speak German. But it was easy to cook so it didn't make a difference THANK YOU SHILEO, I've ordered another set. :)
