Glucomannan is a water-soluble, natural fiber that comes from the roots of an Asian perennial plant called Konjac.
Used for many years as a weight loss aid Glucomannan is said to increase fecal transit time, eliminate constipation, lower cholesterol and balance blood sugar.
The korm of the Konjac root has very little flavor and is valued more for its texture. When mixed with limewater, boiled and cooled it becomes a pale gelatinous noodle, which has been healthfully used for decades in Japanese cuisine.
Having been macrobiotic for 4 years of my life I was thrilled to find a commercial version of this remarkable food and am excited to share it with you today.
