Per 100g, regular pasta, noodles and rice contains up to 70g of carbohydrates and 350 calories whereas the no drain range contains 9g of carbohydrates and 35 calories.
How is it so low in carbohydrates?
CABR X is mostly made from Water, Tapioca and Konjac flour. Konjac flour is made from a root vegetable called Konjac, which looks like yam. Konjac flour is rich in water soluble glucomannan fibre. When mixed with water, it absorbs many times its own weight. Since water contains no carbohydrates and Glucomannan fibre does not get absorbed by the body, the main source of nutrition is from tapioca.
Can I freeze an opened pack?
No, our konjac should not be frozen as this would affect the quality of the food.
Is Konjac a 'fad' food?
Konjac has been consumed in Asia for many centuries as a staple food. If it was a fad food, would it be a staple food?
Is Konjac suitable for children?
If a child is not following a weight loss diet, then yes. The range is suitable for gluten-free, low sugar, fodmap and paleo diets too.
