Advertised in a strongly positive term, Shirataki Noodles were touted on the Rachel Ray show today as a "must try food" for a healthy lifestyle in 2010.
Being illustrated on the said show by Chef Rocco DiSpirito, Shirataki Noodles are manufactured and prepared from yam and touted with no carbs and zero calories plus they are gluten-free and made of natural fiber known as Glucomannan.
These products don't require cooking as you just simply rinse and dry. However, you can add hot water or any meat or vegetable broth, and they are ready to go as the noodles readily suck up the flavors of any food, broth or sauce.
The reputed miracle noodles can be bought on their site or can be procured at the numerous Asian food markets or even in your local grocery outlets. Example of the retailer merchants who retail Shirataki Noodles are Trader's Joe, Safeway, Ralphs, Sunset Foods and New Seasons Market.
