Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
Hundreds of thousands of people in 23 countries have fallen back in love with eating lots of pasta--without the guilt. And now, they have even more reason to be giddy for gluten-free, low-calorie noodles.
Miracle Noodle, which sells a style of pasta from Japan called ‘shirataki’, has recently released two new products, one of which is an instant bowl of noodle soup with only 40 calories and 4 grams of fiber. The noodle soup also contains vegetables and high-quality miso paste.
Shirataki noodles--shaped from the root of a type of yam called ‘konyakku imo’ in Japan--require less prep time than regular noodles, and have zero net carbs and only trace calories.
Miracle Noodle’s second new product launch is a dry version of their popular low-calorie noodle that takes even less time to prepare than its original wet noodles and does not require draining and rinsing or boiling. The new dry noodles contain 3 grams of fiber per serving and zero net calories.
“We're really excited to offer a super low calorie, high-quality and healthy instant noodle soup,” said Jonathan Carp, M.D., President of Miracle Noodle. Carp added, “We're also very excited about the new Dry Noodles, which are super easy to cook and will be yet another healthy low-calorie pasta alternative that will help many people in their weight-loss efforts.”
The new dry noodles are called ‘Kanten Pasta,’ and are featured in the instant noodle soup, which is called ‘Miso Marvellous.’ Kanten is made from the fiber of a sea vegetable called ‘tengusa,’ which is made from a laborious, ancient, artisanal technique honed in Japanese mountain villages that have climates that allow for deep freezing in the night followed by brilliant warm sunshine during the day. Miracle Noodle is proud to support farmers of this fast-fading ancient art. The tengusa is harvested in Morocco.
Sea vegetables such as tengusa are believed by researchers to be partly responsible for the superior health of those that live to 100 years of age and beyond in places like Okinawa.
Both new products are diabetic-, vegan- and vegetarian-friendly, and suitable for gluten-free and low-carb dieters as well as.
