I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could help you..
When you get them and try them, please post your opinion of them. I'm trying to decide whether to give them a try...
Me Too, I am debating on trying them. I know there are some comparable noodles, but none that are the same as the miracle noodles..
Hmmm I dont know would love to hear what you think of them..
I remembered that I read about these noodles somewhere. More information can be found here:.
I have been using them for awhile-they are great! I mix them in with all the pasta-like dishes for lunch and dinner. I am adding them to the spaghetti with meat sauce tonight. I often use the orzo in broth (chicken, beef, vegetable) for an afternoon snack. They are very filling and really extend the portions..
The only ones I do not like are the ditalini-too rubbery due to the size. The penne is good-a little smaller than the ditalini. The long pastas are the best..
They do smell fishy when you open them, but the odor goes away after rinsing. The longer noodles (spaghetti, linguine, etc) can be cut with kitchen shears before adding them to the dishes. They have a different texture than regular pasta and can sometimes be difficult to twirl; cutting remedies this problem..
I buy mine from Konjac foods:.
These also smell less "fishy" than the ones from Miracle Noodles. Konjac is the company that supplies the specialty noodles to Miracle Noodles..
On the Miracle Noodles website, you cannot order the special noodles unless you sign you for the newsletter, etc. I was getting a lot of weird email stuff from them. With Konjac, you can order whatever you want, no emails or sales pitches..
Hope this is helpful...
I couldn't get past the texture, like eating rubber bands. I ended up tossing mine out I just couldn't make myself eat them again...
Well, I just bit the bullet and ordered the variety pack! I was reading on this the other day and was interested! I went to the Konjac food site mentioned after your comments on the miracle noodle web site. I don't need any more 'weird' stuff coming into my inbox!!.
I can't wait to get them...hopefully shipping won't take long!!! I'll post my reactions after I try them!!!..
The Miracle Noodles came in today and I have mixed feelings. They are really different. The smell is really bad but after rinsing off in hot water and drying on paper towels it was better but I could still smell it. I brought some low sodium beef broth with garlic powder and other seasonings I had on hand to a boil. I added the noodles and removed from the heat and just let them sit in the broth while I made a stir fry with veggies and more seasonings. Some people say the texture gets rubbery if over cooked thats why I didnt boil them.
It came out pretty good. My problem is that I have a hard time getting over the initial smell and it really seemed to be a lot of work. I also would have to figure a way to find other uses for them. Just putting a red sauce over them is not going work for me because they have zero flavor. Surprisingly, the texture didnt bother me so much.
I am going to have to get creative and will post recipes as I come up with them...
I like most everything but not these, they have a slimy taste..
I rinse and then boil mine for 3 minutes....
I have used the Shirataki tofu noodles..........which are 20 calories and I don't mind them. Have you tried both?? Just wanting to know if I should try these or continue to just use the tofu noodles. They also have that initial smell. I usually use them to make a stir fry or add curry/PB 2 to make a Thai-like dish............
I haven't tried the tofu ones yet. I may try them after these are gone...
I think they are the same thing....just rinse them really well and boil for about 3 minutes..they are awesome!..
I looked online and there is something totally different, actually called 'miracle noodles' and they do not have any calories. The description sounded similar but it said they were clear instead of white.........just the fiber, no tofu.....so I was just curious..
That's what I do with the Shirataki noodles.......or put them in the microwave and then dry them between papertowels before using..............
I do NOT like the Shirataki noodles! I like most everything but these are awful...just my opinion though..
I've tried both the Miracle Noodles and the Shirataki, and I prefer the Shirataki. The Miracle seem a little more slimy to me... It could be because they are so colorless and maybe it was just a visual thing!..
I think you are right about the visual thing and that is why I just couldn't just use them like spaghetti. As you can see in the picture on the first page of this thread, the soy sauce colored the noodles and it looked and tasted like lo mein. I am going to try the tofu shirataki when I finish with the miracle noodles. Today I am making homemade veggie soup and I am going to put the miracle noodles in that. I think I will boil them for 2-3 minutes in beef broth first. They should pick up the color & taste...
