Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Glucomannan powder is derived from the roots of the Konjac plant. Our Glucomannan powder can be used to aid weight loss since it is a soluble fiber that creates a feeling of fullness so you end up eating less and losing weight. It can also be used as a gluten-free thickening agent in food applications.
Mix 1/2 tsp of powder with 8-oz of water and drink approximately 30 minutes before a meal. Drink immediately before it starts to gel.
To use glucomannan powder as a thickener, first whisk it with cold water and then combine it with the other ingredients in your recipe. One teaspoon of glucomannan powder is recommended for thickening one cup of liquid, although you should first experiment with a small amount to obtain desired results. Glucomannan powder is a tasteless and odorless substitute for cornstarch in recipes. You can also try it with smoothies and sauces.
Health Benefits of Glucomannan Powder
Weight Loss Aid
Glucomannan powder can help induce fullness to prevent overeating. In an eight-week double-blind study published in the International Journal of Obesity, 1-g doses of glucomannan fiber were given to obese patients prior to meals. The participants did not change their regular eating or exercise habits during the course of the study, but they still lost an average of 5.5 pounds using the glucomannan supplement. Serum cholesterol and LDL "bad" cholesterol levels were also reduced.
Lower Cholesterol Levels
As a pure soluble fiber, glucomannan powder can help lower cholesterol levels by interfering with its absorption. Research published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition observed the effects of glucomannan supplementation in healthy men. The study found that the glucomannan fibers reduced total cholesterol by 10%, LDL "bad" cholesterol by 7.2%, triglycerides by 23%, and systolic blood pressure by 2.5%.
Type 2 Diabetes
Glucomannan supplementation has also been shown to improve blood lipid and glucose levels in type 2 diabetic patients. A double-blind study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found that konjac glucomannan supplementation improved blood lipid levels and reduced glucose levels in hyperlipidemic diabetic patients.

“You people are INSANE, in a good way. Today (when your package was delivered) was the most fun I've had since my grand daughter blew milk out her nose laughing at a joke at the dinner table. Wasn't sure I should be ordering Glucomannan from a nut company but I did and it is the only one I have ever used that dissolved instantly. Thanks, Bethany”

“I have ordered from Nuts.com several times already and the fast, next day delivery never fails. Thank you Nuts.com family for being so awesome! I ordered this glucomannan powder, known as konjac or konyakku in Japan. I highly recommend this stuff for dieting purposes as it does an amazing job and keeping hunger at bay for hours and keeping me regular. Simply mix it in water and watch it absorb! It is plain in flavor, has a thick gelatinous texture and will take in the flavor of anything it is cooked in. Excellent product for a great price. You can get glucomannan capsules at your local health food stores but I warn against consuming them in that form as the capsules may get lodged in the esophagus and can choke someone! Getting the powder form and mixing it in your food before consuming is a better option. Plus, the powder is like 1/4 the price of the capsules!”
