Better Than Konnyaku Gluten-Free Rice


Average Customer Rating:
(7 Reviews)



Better Than Rice is a source of fiber and a low calorie, low GI, and gluten, wheat, fat, sugar, and salt-free alternative. Our foods are made from organic Konnyaku flour, from the root of an ancient Japanese organic plant called Konjac. Suitable for Celiacs, Vegans and Vegetarians, Konnyaku has been consumed in Japan for many centuries. On its own it has a neutral taste but when added to healthy ingredients, the pasta absorbs the flavor so that you can enjoy a healthy and delicious meal.

Recommendations: Better Than Pasta is packed in water. You may notice a faint aroma when opening a pack. This can be easily removed by rinsing the food under cold water.

How to prepare:
Step 1 - Drain water from pack and rinse pasta under cold water.
Step 2 - Add to your favorite sauce, salad or Boil for 5 mins, drain and add to favorite ingredients or dry fry in a non-stick pan for 5 mins and add to favorite ingredients.

Storage - Keep in a cool dry place. Don't freeze. Once open, keep in clear water for a maximum of two days.

Shelf Life: 24 months

Ingredients:
Purified water, organic Konnyaku flour, organic oat flour (Juroat), calcium hydroxide (food grade limewater)

My husband grew up having rice most days of his life, but can't indulge since we were both diagnosed with diabetes several years ago. I purchased both this as well as another brand to try, and Better Than Rice was the best of the two by far, coming closer to the look and texture of the real thing. Admittedly, it does smell odd upon opening the package, but following the directions by draining, rinsing, and then boiling the product for a few minutes honestly does eliminate that odor completely. Being plant-based, the texture is just a bit different than regular rice, but when mixed with curries, soups, etc., you can hardly tell. The fact that it's high in very low-carb fiber makes it have a minimal impact on blood sugar spikes. High fiber diets also have the benefit of lowering cholesterol and glucose absorption, making this product actually healthy to eat. I did have to buy a mesh strainer because, like normal rice, the 'grains' are small enough that I was losing some down the drain using typical colanders and strainers. I resorted to using a splatter screen temporarily, but that was too flat and some of the product kept washing over the edge while rinsing. Ordering a new, inexpensive mesh one was a small price to pay. The steps that I've found to work best are: 1. Rinse using a mesh strainer for 15+ seconds (the pieces are small and will wash out of a regular colander) 2. Place into boiling water for 2+ minutes. (You can't really overcook this, so allow the water to return to a boil and then leave it for a few extra minutes without worry) 3. Strain well, then place back into the original pot over medium heat. Drain well for 1-2 minutes to eliminate the excess water that's absorbed by the grains. This, again, isn't something that's time sensitive, so just use your personal preference. I simply find that this last step helps make the final dish less watery, resulting in something more closely resembling regular rice. I've also tried the Better Than Pasta/Noodles versions and we actually had homemade spaghetti sauce last week for the first time in years. The pasta-like products would be great for people who like theirs al dente, as it's just a bit firmer than I'm used to. It was great to enjoy spaghetti again, though, especially while knowing that you weren't 'cheating' at all. I'm hoping that the price will come down gradually because we're enjoying this line of products and could purchase them more frequently if it were less costly.

We really enjoy this product. We use it not because it is gluten-free but because it has zero net carbs. We use it just the way we used to use rice: with something served over it. The flavor comes from the food served over it. The texture is a bit chewier than rice, but I like that. We have been very satisfied with "Better Than Rice" and I highly recommend it.

This doesn't taste like rice, but it is delicious in its own way and serves the same purpose as rice. I've used the product as a base for spaghetti sauce and I'm perfectly satisfied. I like the texture, which is springier than rice, slightly chewy.
