The Story of the NoOodle™
For centuries, noodles derived from yam plants have been embraced by Asian cultures as a high fiber, low calorie dietary staple. Inspired by an on-going commitment to serving healthy cuisine, and in response to a growing customer demand for healthy menu items, restaurant owner and self-taught Chef Terri Rogers, began serving NoOodle™ at Lincolnshire Gourmet, her neighborhood gourmet bistro located in Highland Park, Illinois.
What began as an alternative menu offering at a neighborhood everyday gourmet eatery, quickly escalated into a must-have mainstay. As word of the naturally delicious NoOodle™-based culinary creations spread, restaurant sales skyrocketed. Encouraged by her loyal patrons, proprietor and self-taught chef, Terri Rogers, founded the NoOodle™ Company to manufacture and distribute a variety of packaged NoOodle™ products to restaurants and retailers throughout the United States. Today, NoOodle™ is available at select food service establishments and retail outlets, and can be purchased online at our store.
Pasta and Noodles have Calories.
As we all know, pasta and noodles are made of starch, so they have calories. But there is an exception – NoOodle™ is made from high-fiber yam flour and water. As you are most probably aware, soluble fiber and water have no calories, thus NoOodle™ is entirely devoid of calories. NoOodle™ is the healthy alternative.
What makes NoOodle™ so healthy?
The answer to this questions lies in understanding the role of fiber in our diets. NoOodle™ is made mainly of soluble fiber. Soluble fiber acts to slow digestion. By doing this, it allows for the slower absorption of glucose and is the reason behind its beneficial effects in diabetes. Those with heart disease, type 2 Diabetes, and obesity will benefit from increasing soluble fiber in their diet, as the American Dietetic Association recommends that people consume 20~35g of fiber per day, of which 5~10g should be soluble fiber. The soluble fiber found in NoOodle™ slows digestion and prolongs the sensation of fullness and is an essential part of any weight loss program. You also absorb more nutrients in the foods you eat with NoOodle™ due to the slowing of digestion.
NoOodle™ and Your Health Goals
Just by replacing one meal per day with our noodles will significantly raise your needed fiber intake and dramatically lower your total calorie intake. The human body uses more calories to break down high-fiber foods. NoOodle™ is pure fiber without proteins, fats, sugars or starch. In short it has no calories. In combination with raising your metabolic rate with moderate exercise, you have just found the tasty, healthy dieting plan you have been looking for. It’s possible to lose weight and feel satisfied when you eat food combined with the no calories NoOodle™. The key is eating foods that are high in volume and relatively low in calories. NoOodle™ has no calories and large volume, which helps you feel full but without adding extra calories. The key concept here is energy density; low-energy density foods are high volume.
Energy density of foods refers to the ratio of the foods calories to the volume of the food. High-energy density foods, such as desserts and candies, have small volume but more calories. Low-energy density foods, such as vegetables and fruits, have large volume but fewer calories. Low calorie foods such as the NoOodle™ can help you feel satisfied with fewer calories. By consuming fewer calories, you can lose weight over time and keep it off for longer time.
The Soluble Fiber in NoOodle™ and Your Cholesterol
Yes! Soluble fiber binds bile acids that are secreted from the gall bladder. These bile acids have cholesterol in them and are bound up by the soluble fiber in the NoOodle™ and then excreted. How does NoOodle™ help Type II Diabetes? By slowing the digestive process, there is a slower absorption of glucose which then requires a slower release of insulin from the pancreas which aids in the normalization of blood glucose after eating a meal.
Gluten-Free, Casein-Free and Soy-Free Diets
NoOodle™ contains no gluten, casein or soy so it can be used as the base ingredient for diets that cannot contain these ingredients.
