So, what is konjac gum?

Konjac gum is a natural food ingredient that is derived from the root of the konjac plant, which is native to Asia. This ingredient is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and gelling agent in a variety of food products. Konjac gum is known for its ability to absorb large amounts of water, which makes it useful in creating products with a gel-like texture. It is also low in calories and high in dietary fiber, making it a popular ingredient in weight loss and low-calorie food products. Additionally, konjac gum is gluten-free, vegan, and has no discernible taste, making it an ideal ingredient for a wide range of food products.
