NoOodle is made of 97% water & 3% soluble fiber also known as Glucomannan fiber. Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber. Derived from the roots of the Asian Konjac plant, Glucomannan boasts many health and wellness benefits.

Top 10 Benefits of Eating NoOodle

  1. Zero calories— the glucomannan in NoOodle contributes no calories and when consumed as part of a meal reduces the net caloric content of the meal.  The calories come from what else one puts on the noodles.
  2. Lowers calorie uptake— the glucomannan in NoOodle increases the viscosity of the gastro-intestinal content and reduces rate of food (calories, fat, cholesterol, sugar) absorption in the small intestine.  The net effect of consuming a meal with NoOodle is that one absorbs less calories from the other foods eaten with it.
  3. Promotes satiety— the glucomannan in NoOodle is made up largely of water which fills one up quickly giving the feeling of satisfaction.  One tends to eat less when NoOodle is part of the meal.
  4. Delays hunger— the glucomannan in NoOodle increases the viscosity of gastro-intestinal content and extends the feeling of fullness so one doesn’t feel hungry for an extended period of time.
  5. Modulates glucose spikes— the glucomannan in NoOodle reduces the rate of glucose absorption in the small intestine and prevents blood glucose from spiking (clinically proven to be more effective than xanthan gum and psyllium).  Stirring in NoOodles into ice cream and parfaits helps one enjoy treats with less absorption of sugar.
  6. Modulates insulin surges— the glucomannan in NoOodle, by slowing glucose uptake in the small intestine, reduces the body’s need for insulin.
  7. Cholesterol reducing agent— the glucomannan in NoOodle, by virtue of its viscosity, traps the cholesterol from foods and also the cholesterol released by the body and prevents it from being re-absorbed.  A meal containing NoOodle in addition to flushing out cholesterol from the GI tract will also contribute to reducing cholesterol in the blood cholesterol.  Cholesterol reduction is further enhanced when glucomannan is combined with other cholesterol reducing agents such as plant sterols and chitosan.
  8. Regularity / laxative effect— glucomannan is a dietary fiber and prevents constipation by increasing bulk in the colon without the discomfort associated with most other dietary fibers.
  9. Anti-inflammatory activity— although the mechanism is still being investigated, the positive effect of glucomannan on skin inflammation is well known among its users.  For centuries NoOodle like products have been part of Eastern traditional medicine.
  10. Prebiotic activity— serves as food for bacteria in the colon and helps enhance immunity.  Foods that promote the growth of healthy bacteria have innumerable health benefits for people of all ages and genders.

The Shelby Report – NoOodle Co. Introduces Low-Calorie Soups, Angel Hair Meal Starters

The Shelby Report | Posted By: Kristen | Posted On: August 9, 2013

According to Terri Rogers, founder and CEO of Chicago-based NoOodle Co., keeping things simple, easy and good-tasting is the real key to making great food.

“If you can create that in a 50-calorie soup that is really delicious, you have something that’s going to sizzle in supermarkets, groceries and convenience stores nationwide,” says Rogers. “That’s exactly what we’ve created with our new all-natural, gluten-free, 50-calorie NoOodle Soups. Our Tomato Risotto and Chicken Noodle Soups are absolutely delicious.”

NoOodle 50-Calorie Soups are ready to heat and serve. They are ideal for those who have diabetes or are gluten intolerant, according to the company. The NoOodle—a yam-based noodle that Rogers discovered and brought to America to create her company—has been consumed in Japan for centuries. Today, it is a growing trend with health conscious men and women, home cooks and celebrity chefs, according to NoOodle Co.

Crafted with authentic ingredients and with convenience in mind, ready-to-eat NoOodle Soups contain 50 calories per single-cup serving and are fat free.

Primarily, the NoOodle consists of a dietary fiber called glucomannan. Rogers, a chef, says she was inspired to develop a variety of delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes centered around this ingredient.

The yam helps slow down digestion and avoid spikes in glucose levels. Glucomannan works in the stomach and intestines by absorbing water and helps create a full feeling, while it reduces the intake of carbohydrates and cholesterol.

Dr. Mehmet Oz of “The Dr. Oz Show” recently recommended glucomannan as one of the “Best Appetite Suppressants” and aids for weight loss.

The new 50-Calorie NoOodle Soups include:

• Chicken Noodle Soup—Prepared with chicken and fresh vegetables in a natural chicken broth.

• Tomato Risotto—Diced tomatoes, spinach and basil prepared in a tomato sauce.

Additionally, NoOodle Co. has created a low-calorie, ready-to-eat-version of angel hair pasta. These meal starters are infused with a light chicken-flavored broth or tomato-flavored broth.

• Chicken Flavor Infused Angel Hair—Angel hair NoOodles in a light chicken broth.

• Tomato Infused Angel Hair—Angel hair NoOodles in a tomato flavored broth.

The broths have 40 calories because they are made of 97 percent water and 3 percent gluccomannan flour—a yam based flour—which is 100 percent soluble fiber.

Each NoOodle package contains two servings and is priced at $5.99.
