In the May 2008 issue of Men's Health magazine (pg. 42), Matt Goulding and his writers reported the beneficial recent research surrounding Shirataki noodles (rich in glucomannan) on health parameters.
Researchers from Thailand found that noodles enriched with just 1 gram of this highly soluble fiber significantly slowed the release of sugar into your bloodstream after you've eaten a carb-heavy meal.
The lead researcher, Dr Chearskul, explained that this effect leads to a more steady supply of nutrients into your bloodstream which prevents blood vessel damage and body fat gain.
If you're not into noodles, then a better way to get your glucomannan is to just add it to foods you're already eating, like yogurt, oatmeal, protein shakes and healthy baking.
