Product description

The flour of the konjac tuber (Amorphophallus konjak, also called devil's tongue) is a well-known food in Asia. It is known, among other things, from the original glass noodles, which despite their low nutrient content create a long-lasting feeling of satiety. This is due to the high content of konjac flour in a particularly long-chain soluble fiber: glucomannan.
