What is Innova Health Konjac Glucomannan?

Konjac Glucomannan  is a plant of the genus Amorphophallus. It is called Konjac Glucomannan , Konjac flour or Konjac gum. Konjac is used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 2000 years. The flour belongs to the family of soluble fibers such as oat bran. This makes it a very absorbing food that lowers cholesterol and facilitates intestinal passage.
It is a native plant from eastern Asia.  It is a pure soluble fibre, with almost no fat, no sugar, no starch; it is gluten free and wheat free. It is a perfect substitute in cooking and baking when flour and other sticky starches needs to be avoided. It's a powder made from the Konjac plant, a type of yam. Konjac Glucomannan is extracted from the root of the Konjac plant.

When it’s mixed with liquid it creates a thick rich creamy texture. It doesn't have a taste of its own; 
it absorbs the flavours of other ingredients you add.

Konjac Glucomannan - Pizza Crust

Ingredients:
  • 6 Eggs (Large)
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Water
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 1-2 Cloves Chopped Garlic
  • 5 tsp Konjac Glucomannan  Powder
  • 1/4 c Flax Seed
  • 1/2 c Parmesan cheese or 1/4 C Flax seed
Beat (using electric beater) Eggs, Salt, Water, Olive Oil and Baking Powder until quite fluffy. Then slowly add in Konjac Glucomannan. I use a seasoning shaker to shake the Konjac Glucomannan  in while the electric beater is running. When the beater leaves "waves" in the dough, it's probably just about thick enough. It'll be kind of the consistency of pudding. I then poured in the Flax Seed and the Parmesan Cheese. Pour batter onto a 16 Inch Pizza pan and spread it out as evenly as possible. (Mine came to about 1-1 1/2 inches from the edge) Cook the Pizza crust first at 350 degrees 1st for 15-20 minutes then added the topping. Cook it until the cheese gets melted

NOTE: Start out with just the 5 tsp Glucomanna, but depending on the size of the eggs you may need a bit more.
