So, what is konjaková guma?

Konjaková guma, also known as konjac gum or glucomannan, is a natural ingredient that is derived from the root of the konjac plant. It is a soluble fiber that is commonly used as a thickener, stabilizer, and emulsifier in the food industry. Konjaková guma has a high viscosity and can absorb large amounts of water, making it an excellent ingredient for creating low-calorie, high-fiber foods. It is also gluten-free and has no taste or odor, making it a versatile ingredient for a wide range of food applications. Additionally, konjaková guma has been shown to have potential health benefits, such as aiding in weight loss and improving gut health.
