The main ingredient of konjac powder-water-soluble dietary fiber is hailed as the seventh nutriment. It features low calorie, low fat, high fiber, high viscosity and high repletion feeling.
Konjac powder as a potato starch food features high water absorption rate and high viscosity, so it can serve as the drink and diet food for losing weight. As the collaborative gel, konjac powder can improve the jelly strength of carrageenan and improve the water retaining property. It can be widely applied to jelly, pudding and meat products. After alkali modification, konjac powder will form thermal irreversible gel. So, it can be used for making konjac vegetarian foods like vegetarian cattle stomaches, vegetarian kidneys, vegetarian abalones, vegetarian sea cucumbers, etc.
