Why do people say it smells? Because it's a japanese product, and the packing fluid that smells neutral to the japanese smells fishy to us. However, rinse the noodles in a strainer thoroughly, parboil them for a minute, and the smell is gone. There is absolutely no fishy odor or flavor (or ANY odor or flavor, for that matter) to properly rinsed and parboiled Shiritaki noodles.
These noodles just add texture and filling to your meal. Add them to soup or stir fry, serve them with grilled meat... they're an excellent complement to a carb-free or low-calorie diet. Just don't expect them to taste like spaghetti. They make you feel full, and the fiber is good for you.
The noodles are totally fine stored at room temperature for a month or two. They last even longer in the fridge.
Some Shiritaki noodles have tofu in addition to the glucomannan, and therefore have calories. This particular brand, however, does not.
Shiritaki noodles will not substitute in your favorite Italian dish. They're much better paired with various Asian recipes and spices.
Did I mention that shirataki noodles are also vegan and GMO-free? They are. Get some and enjoy!!!
After reading several reviews from others, I wanted to add my two cents on the fishy smell and preparation of shirataki noodles:
Yes, this product does have a fishy smell when first opened. RINSE the noodles. Duh. Rinse them well in cold water and then drain before using.
Several reviewers mentioned a "rubber-band" texture to the noodles. Personally, I don't find their texture unpleasant; if I had to compare their texture to anything, it would be to semolina spaghetti noodles that are very slightly overcooked. They are a bit more tender than al dente pasta, yet firm in a different way as a result of from what they are made.
Some reviewers mentioned that they boiled or roasted the noodles; I like to simply rinse them in cold water and then heat them in the microwave with my favorite sauce (marinara).Read more ›

Noodles have no taste, but add pesto and they are yummy. Don't expect the same texture as pasta. You have to give up something to get nothing (calories, carbs). I like themPublished 2 months ago by R. Potter
I love these noodles! I drain them and let them dry out a bit on paper towel and then stir fry them. They don't get over cooked or mushy like some noodle can... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Debbie
