Shirataki noodles with oat fiber flour

I'm about to order a case of shirataki noodles from Konjac Foods. I noticed that they have a new product made with the shirataki noodles plus the addition of oat fiber flour to improve the texture of the noodles as well as the absorbency and color. I looked up the nutrition of the oat fiber flour and read that for 1 oz of flour (if oat fiber and oat fiber flour are the same thing) it's about 27.1 g carbs but it's also 27.1 g carbs of dietary fiber so they cancel each other out? Right?

I need to be sure I'm reading this right. I don't want to order something that will add to my carb load.

What brand are you using? I buy mine at WalMart for $2.28 a bag. I checked on the back and noticed both potato starch and chickpea starch. I'm going to start ordering the Konjac brand from their company. There are no added starches and a 24 count case comes out at about $1.49 per 8.8 oz bag with free shipping. They're in San Francisco. I think I'll give the oat fiber ones a try.

I think it's House of Foods. I got it from Safeway. I won't eat often now cause I am strictly eating eggs and meat only.

I just ordered some Zeroodle spaghetti and the rice. Going to make coconut-curry rice and I might try adding some of the spaghetti as noodles for a Thai peanut salad. I have high hopes!

Shirataki pasta with chickpea flour and potato starch

I recently bought some Nasoya brand shirataki noodles. I thought they were made wholly with konjac flour. Looking at the ingredients I noticed both chickpea flour and potato starch. The produce man at the store said he thought it was a very small amount of both. Could this affect my low carb diet? I like shirataki noodles, they supply much needed fiber and fulfill my taste for pasta. If necessary I can order a case of pasta from Konjac which doesn't have these ingredients, but it's so convenient to just run in the store and pick up a couple of bags, although a little more costly.

I would say depends on two things... food sensitivities (watch and listen to your body's reaction and signals) and number of carbs per serving you would typically have...

If you aren't sensitive to the ingredients and the number of carbs per your serving size (not the one on the bag) fit in you're plan... why not?

Oh I guess it depends on which plan too. Old Atkins induction restricted not only number of carbs but types of foods at first too. For example old Atkins didn't allow nuts and berries until the later rungs of OWL. This relates back to the first thing... food sensitivities

I'm not at all sensitative to the noodles although, happily, they do help to "move things along" in the morning".

I eat half a package (2/3 of a cup) at a time. Total carbs are 4 and net carbs are 3, so that comes out at 1 net carb per serving.

I like them and use them in a lot of ways. They're so convenient and with the added fiber, which I need, keeps "things" moving. Thanks for the info.
