What is organic konjac flour?
Organic Konjac flour is obtained from the tubers of various species of Amorphophallus. It is a soluble dietary fiber that is similar to pectin in structure and function.
Konjac, also known as glucomannan, is an herb that grows in parts of Asia. It’s known for its starchy corm, a tuber-like part of the stem that grows underground. The corm is used to make a rich source of soluble dietary fiber. Konjac is used as a gelatin substitute and to thicken or add texture to foods.
The plant is part of the genus Amorphophallus. Typically, it thrives in the warmer regions of Asia. The extract of the Konjac root is referred to as Glucomannan. Glucomannan is a fiber-like substance traditionally used in food recipes, but now it is utilized as an alternative means of weight loss.
Konjac flour consists mainly of a hydrocolloid polysaccharide, glucomannan. Glucomannan is composed of glucose and mannose subunits: inked with B-1, 4 linkages at a molar ratio of i . O 1 .6. It is a slightly branched polysaccharide having a molecular weight of 200,000 to 2,000,000 daltons. Acetyl groups along the glucomannan backbone contribute to solubility properties and are located, on average.
