Review: House Foods Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Filed under: New Product — @ March 13, 2006

Do you remember when the Ralph Macchio character named Daniel in The Karate Kid movie would yell the word “Bonzai” to help him remember to stay focused on his training (okay, so I’m dating myself by referencing THAT movie, I know!)?

Well, I’ve got a new word I want you to yell to remind yourself to stay focused on the low-carb lifestyle. It’s this — “shirataki!”

I first introduced you to these miraculous Japanese noodles last week and even reviewed the Konjac brand for you.

But wait until you try the House Foods Tofu Shirataki noodles! WOWsers!

bq. Since I had already tried another brand of shirataki noodles previously, I was expecting them to be similar when I put them in my mouth. But imagine my surprise when I started chewing and noticed they were soft like real pasta and weren’t as “chewy” as the other brands.

While the nutritional value of these noodles is slightly higher in calories and net carbs than the Konjac brand, you will appreciate the House Foods Tofu Shirataki noodles for giving you what you really want — great pasta look and taste without the unneccessary carbs!

bq. Each 4-ounce serving (2 servings per bag) has just 20 calories and a neglible 1g net carbs (3g total carbs minus 2g of dietary fiber). While that’s not ZERO, it’s certainly not bad, especially considering the trade-off you make in the texture of these noodles. These are perfect for every phase of livin’ la vida low-carb for a nutritious and delicious pasta alternative.
