Australian firm Slender is introducing its konjac noodle and pasta products and ready-to-eat meals to the UK.
Made from an Asian plant, Amorphophallis konjac, the company claims its konjac-based noodle, rice and pasta items have an increased satiating effect. They are higher in fibre and lower in calories than traditional rice or pastas.
The line of ready meals consists of three recipes: Organic Italian Capers and Olives Sauce; Arrabbiata Sauce; and Organic Italian Basil Sauce.
The products are available at Morrisons supermarkets nationwide. The konjac pasta range is currently on sale with an RRP of £2.50, with the ready-to-eat meals available from £4.50.
