2. High Fiber Content: Konjac is rich in dietary fiber, particularly glucomannan.

The high fiber content also supports healthy digestion and regular bowel movements.
3. Gluten-Free: Konjac is naturally gluten-free, making it a valuable ingredient for individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease. It can be used as a substitute for gluten-containing ingredients in various recipes and products.
