nuPasta

What is NuPasta?

A full plate (210g) of regular cooked pasta contains about 300 calories and 2g of dietary fibre, the same amount of NuPasta contains 25 calories and 6g of dietary fibre. NuPasta is also gluten free.

Regular pasta is made with wheat, a starch which has calories. NuPasta is made with the root of the konjac plant which is rich in dietary fibre and has no starch. The absence of starch is the reason why NuPasta is so low in calories.

What is Konjac?

The konjac plant (Amorphophallus konjac) grows on slopes 2000 to 4000 ft above sea level, where it enjoys the habitat’s clean air and water. Today, konjac plants are grown in Japan, Korea, and China. The edible part of the konjac plant is the root which resembles an oval shaped taro or yam potato.

Some people call konjac noodles “yam noodles”. This is misleading as there is no yam at all; if it did, there would have lots of starch and calories.
