    Hi all, I have been searching everywhere for those shirataki noodles everywhere but they are soled out. Went into a Chinese supermarket and they told me to try Mung bean pasta, fuku pasta and sweet potato pasta. Has any one tried them and does anyone know if they are allowed whilst doing atkins. Its meant to be the same as shiriataki noodles which has no calories or carbs. Is this true?????

    Sweet potato pasta surely has more carbs than we would like?

    I use Dreamfields pasta. 5g net carbs per serving.

    You can buy this, or shiritake noodles, online.

    lowcarbmegastore
    avidlite

    Both are Aladdin's Caves full of low carb grub!

    Roseb, I don't know where you are located but you can get the Shirataki noodles in most Chinatown stores, I buy them here in Birmingham.

    Make sure they are the correct ones Vicky, there is a variety made from Tofu and they are not nice.
