Mannanhikari

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have been trying to get Otsuka Corp to start importing Mannanhikari to the USA for years now, ever since I purchased some on Rakuten.

They always say its not for export, Oh well, but Ive noticed that there appear to be other companies selling Calorie and carb lowering rice stretchers

as well, Does anyone of you eGulleters in Japan know what the companies are?

I was going to buy a case and sell it on ebay but OMG the shipping on 24 packages alone were $200.00!!!


Wawa Sizzli FTW!

OK, what IS this stuff?

Its rice stretcher. You add 1 bag to 1/2 cup rice and cook it in a rice cooker and it cuts the carbs and calories in 1/2.

Its "fake rice" for lack of a better word..

It tastes and looks like rice. Its made of Konnyaku but with no rubbery texture

Or, make rice as usual and eat a half portion :wink: [/sarcasm]


So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
