Most weight-loss diets focus on limiting calories or carbohydrates, so pasta and rice are either strictly limited or outright banned in specific phases. This is of course because your typical 80-100g pasta serving can deliver up to 350kcal and 70g of carbs to your body.
Enter ZenPasta, the ideal solution for healthy and sacrifice-free weight-loss
The “magic ingredient” of all our products is Konjac flour. This flour is extracted from the root of an Asian plant, called Konnyaku in Japan and Moyu or Juruo in China. It contains only glucomannan, a soluble fiber that is not digested by our body, so it does not bring any net calories to our diet.
Soluble fibres are present in many other foods, like legumes, oats, plums, apples, broccoli, carrots, but only konjac flour is made only of 100% soluble fibre and nothing else. Soluble fibres partially melt in your stomach, forming a gel that delays food absorption and provides a longer lasting feeling of fullness.
The European Authority for Food Safety recommends a 25g minimum daily fibre intake and ZenPasta products provide between 22g and 40g of fibre per serving. With our products you can easily eat a lot of healthy fibre while enjoying very tasty pasta or rice dishes.
With its high fibre, low carbs and low calories, it is no surprise that ZenPasta can be one of your best allies in any weight-loss diet.
If you are looking for low-carb eating, we have virtually carb-free products like Konjac Shirataki Noodles, Konjac Rice and Extra Fiber Rigataki, which are accepted without limitations in all phases of Dukan and other low-carb diets. For consolidation and other less strict phases, have a look at our Penne 40% Less, with 50% less carbs than normal pasta, a great way of limiting your carbs without compromising the taste.
If you are counting calories, as in weight watchers or similar diets, you will be delighted to know that our products start at 28Kcal per 100g of cooked Konjac Shirataki Noodles (85% less than wheat pasta). Even our Penne 40% Less, that taste exactly like normal wheat pasta, provide only 106Kcal per 100g (40% less than normal wheat pasta).
