About ABS Konnyaku

Nowadays carbohydrate-restricted diet is very popular amongst diabetics and people on a diet. We are expecting this diet to become even more popular because you do not have to restrict your calorie intake. Especially, developing substitute products for staple foods, such as rice, bread, noodles and pasta which are high in carbohydrate has been the most difficult. That is why our innovative ABS Dried Konnyaku has developed and they can be used as substitutes for staple foods.


Low-carbohydrate and low-calorie foods having the texture that can be used as a substitute for staple diet items

We have improved the texture of traditional Konnyaku and Shirataki to develop ABS Dried Konnyaku which can be consumed as staple diet (rice and bread, etc.). ABS Dried Konnyaku Rice (rehydrated) has 48kcal per 100g and has 6.7g calculated carbohydrate per 100g. ABS Dried Konnyaku has no odor owing to our special manufacturing process so that you can enjoy our ABS Konnyaku products as a substitute for staple food. Our versatile products include substitute rice, bread and noodles, all of which can be consumed safely. We also succeeded to develop products such as bread, okonomiyaki, rice cracker and warabimochi (bracken-starch dumplings) without using any flour.
