Traditional shirataki are not soy, they are konjac. I would imagine since they have almost zero calories that they would be good for slow carb... just make sure you read the label to determine if you're getting konjac-based shirataki or soy/tofu-based shirataki
And thanks for the reminder, I meant to give shirataki a try with the diet to see how it holds up.. a little bit of "spaghetti" and meat sauce with spinach and lentils in it would do me some serious good when the pasta cravings kick in.
I don't know about shirataki noodles, but I would think since they are soy they're a no go.
But I was wondering about Mung Bean Noodles? The clear cellophane noodles? I figure since they're entirely out of beans they would be OK (I'm also hoping because they happen to be my favorite kind of noodle.) But be sure to read the packaging - I almost bought some today that were also made with potato starch, I went back and bought the ones that had Mung Beans as the only ingredient listed.
I use Miracle Noodles as well as the JFC brand (neither are soy/tofu combinations) on the SCD and they work wonderfully. Miracle Noodles have a wider variety of styles/shapes of noodles, but both help with recipes that need a certain texture. I just used the 'rice' variety for red beans and rice and it was fantastic.
