Noodles, by definition, contain egg or egg yolks in addition to flour.

Oodles of Noodles: Cuisine of The World

You can find a noodle in just about every shape, size, and color. From plain manilla to the exotic black squid ink, brilliant red beet and elegant green spinach, noodles have their place inĀ almost every variety of cuisine.

Noodles can be sold fresh or dried, and can be made from a variety of flours. Some of the most popular noodles enjoyed include cellophane noodles (made from mung-bean starch), Japanese harusame (made with rice, potato or soybean flour), egg noodles (typically wheat-based), rice flour noodles, soba (made with buckwheat) and ramen (egg and wheat noodles).

Choosing The Best Noodles for Your Health

For optimal blood sugar balance, most noodles are high in carbohydrates with a high glycemic load and should be avoided. Pure soba noodles – made with only buckwheat – are the best choice for a “traditional” type noodle.

Miracle Noodles, made from glucomannan, or grain-free noodles that have been cooked and cooled, which produce resistant starch, are the best options for healthy blood sugar.
