SlimPasta is a great substitute for pasta and noodle and easy to incorporate into your current lifestyle. SlimPasta makes you feel full for longer without adding a lot of calories.

SlimPasta is naturally made of a vegetable called Konjac which produces a high fibre (called gulcomannan) that is a low calorie and low carbohydrate food. SlimPasta provides delicious meal options for you and your family. SlimPasta helps create a long term solution to aid towards better health to feel better and be happy.

SlimPasta is not new to the market; it has been popular in Asia for over a thousand years, specifically in Japan and China, and while it can be identified by many different names (Konjac noodle, Shirataki), they are all essentially the same and have identical health benefits of lower cholesterol, lower blood glucose, and body weight management.
