What is Slim Pasta® made from?
Slim Pasta® is made from a water-soluble vegetable fibre called Moyu (konjac).
Will it taste good?
Slim Pasta® is slightly chewy than normal pasta because it is made from fibre. It is also very absorbing, so if you add them to a sauce that is runny, it will absorb a lot more of the flavours. The down side of eating normal pasta is that it is High in Calories, Carbohydrates and Sugar. You could either have pasta that contains 352 calories and 71.6g of carbohydrates (per 100g serving) or have Slim Pasta® that contains 7.7 Calories (Zero Net calories), 0g of Carbohydrates, of which Sugar is 0g. With Slim Pasta®, you will feel full for up to 4 hours. You will get net zero calories and zero carbohydrates and zero sugar from the Slim Pasta®, and you will also lose weight from eating pasta.
What is that odor you get when you open a bag of Slim Pasta®?
Slim Pasta® comes stored in a food grade calcium hydroxide water (lime water), and when opened, you will notice a starch like odor. This is perfectly normal, since it is made of a high quality and high viscose Moyu fibre. The starch odor disappears after 2-3 rinses under warm water.
What does ZERO Net Calories mean?
The calories per 100g in Slim Pasta® is 7.7. However, these calories come from vegetable fibre, and it cannot be absorbed by the body. So although Slim Pasta® is made up of 7.7 calories, what your body absorbs is practically zero, hence ‘Zero Net calories’.
I am eating a Slim foods meal for the first time, how much should I eat?
The Slim foods range is very filling, so start with a very modest portion and see how you get on and increase the portions in your next meal until you are sure about the portion size. Try to remember that the Slim food range is not like your usual pasta, noodles and rice, you may not need to eat as much as regular pasta, noodles and rice to feel satisfied (depending on your added sauce/ingredients).
