1. What is konjac and konjac powder?
Popularly known as glucomannan powder, ‘Konjac Flour’ is made from the crushed root of the konjac plant, which is native to several East Asian countries. Konjac is known for its starchy corm, a tuber-like part of the stem that grows underground. The corm is used to make a rich source of soluble dietary fibre known as glucomannan. This flour is known to be high in fibre with no carbohydrates in it and has been linked to a bounty of health benefits. One might wonder about its popularity, but it isn’t something new and has been used for a long time as “glucomannan powder” in Southeast Asian cuisine. It is being popularized by people across the world as konjac flour helps in bowel movements, lowering plasma cholesterol while improving metabolism. Also, this flour is being used to make ‘Shirataki noodles’, which are also called ‘miracle noodles’ as they have 97% water and 3% fibre with zero calories in them.
