Whenever I have a chance to cook for any events including catering & lunch-boxes to go, I always try to combine this magical Konjac for my creations, why? There are so many amazing reasons. If you know what this Konjac can do to your body, you just want to use it...
A Japanese potato called konjac can flush 25% of the calories you eat out of your body.😊 Now, I know you seriously want to know more. This Japanese potato is fat-free, so its virtually a zero-calorie food, which has been used as an ingredient in Japanese dishes for over 2,000 years,
According to the Japanese Konjac Association, konjac normalizes cholesterol, prevents high blood pressure, and because it consists of 50% water and 40% glucomannan (dietary fiber), the body finds it hard to digest, thus sliding right through you and cleaning out your intestines all the while giving you the illusion that you are full. Glucomannan is an amazingly dense, high fiber substance that has the ability to expand to 200 times its size upon entering the digestive tract. It envelops calories, carbohydrates and fats in fiber. Therefore, as these food particles pass through your digestive system, the body regards them as fiber, and flushes them out of your body, along with the toxins in the digestive tract. It’s no wonder the Japanese call it a “broom for the stomach.”
