Have any of you guys tried the slim noodles/rice or pasta out?

It seems these noodles are made of a substance from Japan Glucomannan  and have zero or little calories! Wow is that actually possible to cut out the bulk of carb calories? Just wonderd if anyone had tried or heard of them?

A friend just told me about them, but it seems they are a lot more expensive than regular noodles/rice and pasta.Darn it, I wish I had known about these before now! eek 

I am up for giving them ago and will try to source them tomorrow :-) If they are any good hopefull its possible to bulk buy!!!

      Hiya Britney x

      Guess its a bit like tofu? maybe its something that has not taste and you have to give it some flavour! I am going to try them, just to see if I can get along with them.

      Desperate times calls for desperate measures! ha! ha!

      Hi Daisy

      ha i love tofu but its 10g fat per 100g i think

      i really do like it even on it's own! It can be pretty tasteless but i always think you should try something new that way at least you can say you tried! smile

      No taste as they are 90% water. The noodles are like elastic bands!! The texture is very weird. 

      I have about 8 packets if anyone lives in Leicestershire lol.

      Yeah I tried the rice noodles and pasta. The noodles are disgusting the rice is noodles chopped into tiny bits like chewy elastic bands. 😖the pasta is prob the best out of all of them but still not nice. 

      They come packed in a weird liquid that stinks of fish too so gotta rinse well. 

      They are not the best as really weird texture and very chewy 😳

      Give them ago you might like them, haven't found anyone yet who has tho lol.

    Hiya. I have tried them. They are NOTHING like pasta rice or noodles lol. They are like a chewy plastic but very low calorie. If you cover them in sauce and want to bulk the meal out it's ok bit they have no taste what so ever. 

    Holland and Barrett sell them I brought them when they do the buy one get another for 1p offer smile

      Lol...Chewy plastic huh? but chewy plastic with little calories! :-) Is it kinda simlar to squid texture?

      I have had to learn to drink soya, that taste like drinking plastic, thinking I should at least give eating plastic a go! 

      I used to chew the end of my pen in University eek I might end up partial to a bit of plastic on my plate, especially if its got little calories in it! I tried Holland and Barrets Soya chedder style cheese, oh my gosh was it rank! I took it back because I thought it was off, to be told it supposed to taste rank!

      Unfortunately I am now gluten/lactose/wheat intolarant in my old age and a few other things! lol

      Ok dispite your attempts to warn me, I ended up buying some of the slim rice/pasta, tried the rice this afternoon at the office.

      What a weird substance indeed, like little bits of soft plastic that pop in your mouth. I did rinse it well and made sure to hold my breath when I opened the inner packet, but even after rinsing several times I could still smell a fishy like odour :-(

      I was thinking maybe the rice should be left to soak out the smell and would be better in low fat yogurt with some fruit, did you ever try it as a dessert of some kind?

      In have yet to try the pasta, have to wait until I have recovered from the rice! eek

      The pasta is slightly better, the noodles are worse than the rice!!!! Told you they were fishy. Lol. 🐟🐟🐟🐟🐟

      I never tried them as a pudding as the texture is just too weird!!! Let me know if you do tho as I still have some in the cupboard. smile

      Will do hun,

      I didn't purchased the noodles, just the penne, spaghetti and rice.

      What I did notice is the rice is 7 cals per 100gms and the penne and spaghetti are double at 21 cals for 100gms?? darn it!

      I just read the ingredients in the pasta and spaghetti and it contains 4.6 % oat fibre, maybe that is why you think it tastes a bit better than the others!

      I will give them a better wash at home, bit difficault in the office and I was concerned about the smell! I shall try the penne next, but can't face another packet tonight lol ....

      I have purchased 20 of the *Eat Water* so I will have to pace myself eek Flippin heck I wont be told anything, typical of me to buy bulk!

      Dont Brit!

      I purchased 20 packets! eek

      I maybe didnt rinse them enough, I dont think its actually fishy water they are in, maybe some kind of preservative? The rice is just 21 cals per 200gms, I have to make myself like it some how!

      I have sunken to new depths regarding what I eat Britney, I want that size 12 soo soo bad!

      I want to wear the 60 odd pairs of slinky heals I have in boxes so much.

       I treated myself to a pair of Irregular Choice shoes, they have been killing me at work all day, as I got my normal size proir to weight gain, I shall have to box them up and just adore them for a while, well until my trotters are back to a size 5! again cheesygrin
