So, what is konjac glucomannan?

Konjac glucomannan is a natural, water-soluble dietary fiber derived from the root of the konjac plant. It has a unique ability to absorb large amounts of water, making it an excellent thickener and emulsifier in food products. Konjac glucomannan is commonly used as a low-calorie, low-carbohydrate alternative to traditional thickeners like cornstarch or flour. It has been shown to have various health benefits, including promoting weight loss, improving digestive health, and reducing cholesterol levels. Konjac glucomannan is also used in many Asian cuisines, particularly in dishes like noodles and konjac jelly.
