A noodle that oodles better than the rest!

Diabetic? Gluten free? On F-Factor? Listen up—this one is for you (and you, and you!)

It should come as no surprise that a product called “Better Than Noodles”, which is made by a brand called “Better Than Foods”, would be, in fact, better in one sense or another than most noodles on the market. But what makes it better, and just how much better is it, really? Allow for us to explain, and to blow your mind.

To fully paint this picture, a noodle comparison was needed, and sorry, Ka Me, but your Hokkien Stir-Fry Noodles were chosen simply because the Better than Noodles package mentions stir-fry, and a quick Google search dictated that you are the gold standard of stir-fry noodles (at least you won that!). We’ll go easy on you (promise ????), and we’ll make it quick.

Fast stats – Compared to Ka Me’s Stir-Fry Noodles, per serving, Better Than Noodles has:

  • 90% less calories
  • 100% less fat, sodium and sugar
  • 1/8th the amount of carbohydrates
  • DOUBLE the fiber

((Nota bene: Ka Me’s Stir-Fry Noodles do contain 5 more grams of protein than Better Than NoodlesKudos for that, Ka Me!))

Your mind is probably semi-blown and the pasta water is probably semi-boiling by now, so we continue. Why, exactly, are we seeing such staggering stats? Made from konjac flour, Better Than Foods products are similar to traditional shirataki products, but theirs are supercharged: the konjac fiber is mixed oat fiber, which results in, you guessed it, even MORE fiber! The result: a very low calorie product that contains fiber, has ZERO net carbs, and boasts a more similar appearance and texture to traditional pasta, noodle, and rice products. While you’re reading this, know that if the words ‘konjac’ and ‘shirataki’ sound foreign to you, that’s understandable, click here.

But that’s not all, it gets, for lack of a better word, BETTER! Better than Noodles are gluten-free, wheat-free, fat-free, sugar-free, soy-free, and dairy-free, too. They’re also organic, Kosher, vegan, and made from non-GMO ingredients. Watching your sodium intake? These noodles have 0g sodium too! You’re welcome.

THIS PRODUCT IS A STEP 1 FOOD.
