At 40 calories for the whole package I don't count them at all. I don't think they actually have enough of anything to be meaningful nutritionally.

Just looked at the info - there's only 2grams of protein in the whole package:

Hmm this is odd..because on my package of "miracle noodles"..There is no calories , no fat and less that 1 gram of carb per serving..and it says its not tofu..but its made of vegetable fibre..

See for yourself and tell me what you think : www.miraclenoodle.com

* made of naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar, or starch.
* contain zero net carbohydrates and zero calories, no gluten -made of a healthy natural fiber called Glucomannan.
* wheat & gluten free and kosher.
* Easily absorbs the flavors of any soup, dish, or sauce.
* are instant and come in a variety of styles
* have shown beneficial effects backed by medical studies for Type II Diabetes, Constipation, Obesity, and Cholesterol!

The ones you see in the stores around here usually have tofu in them and are the 40 calories/bag kind mentioned above. However, the "miracle noodle" brand and the shiritaki imported from Japan consist of water and some sort of special yam flour (no tofu) and are 0-5 calories per serving. I just wandered into this thread and am not on SB, but I don't count the non-tofu ones when I'm tracking calories since they're mostly water.

Cool, we don't get those here. I wouldn't count those at all. They have a GI of 0, no calories and no nutrients. Just put lots of healthy stuff with them (like veggies )

I bought them once and the package had 80 calories. I was curious to try them after seeing them on Dr. Oz and Hungry Girl. I washed them, as instructed, but thought they smelled fishy. Ugh. I tried rinsing them more and accidentally dumped them down the drain! Maybe it was a Freudian "slip."

Anyhoo... do they taste like they smell?!

This is exactly how I prepare them! The fishy smell goes away after you rinse and boil them. Be warned though that the texture is not like normal pasta - it's more rubbery, sort of like glass/rice noodles that you get in asian cuisine sometimes. I often put them in stirfrys with soy or peanut sauce and sometimes add them to broth with some veggies to make a sort of ramen type of soup.

DEFINITELY rinse and parboil them. They don't taste as they smell, thank heavens. I remember the first package I bought, I thought they had gone bad so I googled to find out. Parboiling them takes all of the flavor out of them. I usually use them in asian recipes, but they are decent with veggie packed marinara too.

I've always loved Shirataki noodles and ate them quite a bit when I was on an Atkins type diet.

I read that a 2004 Daily Dish from South Beach official site said they are mostly fiber and can be had in any phase of South Beach. I plan on having them on Phase 1.

If prepared correctly they rock. If not, ugh.
