I’m re-reviewing Miracle Noodles, a product that has come a long way in the last 10 years since I first reviewed them. Not only am I happy to share their many health benefits, a coupon code and my favorite recipes to boot!
WHAT’S SO MIRACULOUS ABOUT miracle noodles?
Back at their start, they had one option- a simple noodle option made from the konjac plant. Today however, they have quite a few to choose from, and are friendly for just about every type of diet:
- Low carb
- FODMAP Friendly
- Angel hair
- Hearts of palm ready-to-eat pasta
While they don’t taste or have the texture of traditional pasta, they are pretty close. With the right recipe and cooking techniques, they make an excellent substitute for your favorite noodle meals.
Just a tip though: they can take some getting used to, as with any “substitution.” It usually takes me a little time to familiarize my taste buds with something new, but if it’s healthy and means I have more options than lettuce and chicken breast- it’s worth it!
It’s also not long before I find myself craving that food- and craving healthy foods… that’s a priceless benefit.
Where Do Miracle Noodles Come From?
They come from the Konjac plant, which contains a water soluble fiber known as Glucomannan. This polysaccharide is considered an effective dietary fiber with a number of healthy benefits, making this a welcome imported plant from eastern Asia (Japan, China and Indonesia.)
The Konjac plant looks like this:
4 Great Benefits of Miracle (Yum) Noodles
It’s no secret that a primary issue with the Western diet, is the high calorie intake (our portions are sometimes 5 x the size of other countries) and the lack of fiber in our diet. In other words, we don’t get quite enough fruit and vegetables on the daily.
1. Lots of Fiber Benefits!
This is where these noodles come in handy. Not only are they full of healthy fiber for digestion, but it also leaves the body feeling full for extended periods of time. This slows the digestion process, allowing the body time to thoroughly process everything eaten.
2. Helps with Insulin Resistance
This also delays the release of glucose (sugar) into the bloodstream. This can be very beneficial to those who struggle with their weight and are known to be insulin resistant.
Note: Are miracle noodles acceptable on the Hcg Diet food list? Yes!
3. Improved Digestion and Gut Health
The slower digestion also enables your body to absorb more nutrients from the foods you consume – vitamins, minerals, and protein. The results are many, but improved gut health is also a result of this efficient digestion process.
In combination with an active lifestyle the noodles can help with lasting weight loss success.

4. Lower Cholesterol
These nifty noodles can also help lower cholesterol. Studies show the fiber contained in Miracle Noodles binds bile acids secreted from the gall bladder. These bile acids contain cholesterol are ‘captured’ and excreted with the fiber. According to research the improvement is significant.
5. Constipation Relief
Glucomannan present in the noodles has also been found to relieve constipation and promote gut health.
Allergies and Special Diets
Miracle noodles don’t contain soy, gluten or dairy and they are a good alternative for people with allergies and intolerances. They also have zero net carbs (digestable) which makes them really great for low carb and keto dieters as well as Hcg Dieters.
