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.  

NOoodle is amazing cause once you add in into the recipes/ the sauce you can never over cook it. NOoodle is ambiant shelf stable and should be stored in the pantry.

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.

Today is the end of a great week for NoOodle!

Happy Friday! I am going to have a great weekend because NoOodle had a great week. Here are some of the highlights. Our new products will be on shelves in All Marianos in my neck of the woods Chicago area, Metro Market in the Madison ( University of Madison)  and Copps in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin  by February 15th! Yeah!  I am excited to get on the shelves in the University towns. I also found out that Country Markets will be bringing on the complete line right away. This is in University of Illinois territory and a great test for University Kids. Say yes to NoOodle and No to those unwanted freshman 15!  For all of you guys who live in Indiana & Michigan we just got word that our products will be in Meijer Stores new all natural soup sections. This will be in stores by April 1. We picked up distribution in the Florida States thru the natural food chain called Akins who have 22 locations. I spent some time in the kitchen of our factory this week with some great budding food scientists and we had a lot of fun experimenting on new creations. We worked on our new line of NoOodles called “Asian Fusion.”  In the near future we will be introducing Pho Beef NoOodle, a Chicken Curry NoOodle and a Terri-yaki NoOodle to our line of products. I must say,  they are great!  I think they will end up being under 100 calories per serving. I hope you guys watch me on QVC on Jan 31st at 4 eastern time. I hope I have a complete sell out of our one hit wonder, Chicken NoOodle Soup.    If you haven’t tried our soup I would give it a whirl. If you like very flavorful dishes like me Simply heat up on a stove and then add a little crushed red pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper with a squeeze of lemon juice.  For 100 calories your getting 16 ounce of goodness. Enjoy your weekend and stay on your road to your success & have fun doing it. Chef Terri
