Shirataki Noodles best tasting brand?

For non-tofu shirataki: Which shirataki noodles do you like best? Or does it matter?
Netrition has Dukan Diet and Miracle Noodles, plus there are various others.

I've also read that "dry frying" (rinsed and kind of stir fried) tastes better than boiling for a few minutes.

Today at WM I found Zero Pasta Plus noodles by the vegetarian section. They were quite good and had a decent texture.

I saw Quest has come out with some too. I think only GNC is carrying them. The 'noodles' I've tried you do all three too. Rinse, boil, fry then use.

Yeah, we do. They are the 'miracle or shirataki' ones. Found them at whole foods. Even my picky eater really liked them. I've used them in pad Thai, spaghetti and chicken noodle soup. I just did what the package directed, wash, boil, fry.

I'm going to try the Quest ones though and see if they are any better/different.

I tried the Quest ones. Not that great for the price. Netrition carries No oodles or something like that that are softer than the Miracle noodles.

Best Shirataki Noodles

Hi, I love Miracle Noodle brand of shirataki noodles.. they are a staple n our house. I combine them with veggies and some protein and of course favorite sauces. They take on the flavor of whatever you combine them with.

Netrition just added a new Shirataki product to stock. It is called Kanten Pasta by Miracle Noodle. No draining, rinsing or boiling! Once your dish is finished or a sauce is warmed, add Kanten Pasta noodles to the dish.

I tried Shirataki noodles and just couldn't eat them... And being that I have dieted most of my life I can eat just about anything...lol... But I didn't know about the frying part. Can someone give me a recipe that they liked using them?

Also The Kanten Pasta looks maybe to be better..

Thanks!!

I know this is an old thread. But, topic is still relevant. I like these because of the lack of flavor. My local store stopped stocking these, so I'm actually probably going to pull together a bigger Netrition order and get these.

Several other varieties seem more fishy.

So these are made with agar instead of glucomannan..might have to give them a try.

They carry these at our local grocery and we love them. I typically use them for stir frys or to make ramen soup.
