Review: Miracle Rice

 

Miracle Noodle’s Miracle Rice.

Zero calories? <1 gram of carbs? Man. They must REALLY be guilt-free. Let’s eat them all the time!!!! Yeah, only if you want to feel like you’re eating cartilage all the time. 

Packaging: 8/10

Well, this certainly was interesting. I got a “Fragile" liquid-y envelope in the mail and was SO confused as to what I could have possibly received. I opened the envelope and there they were: Miracle Noodle products packaged nicely in squishy plastic bags full of water. 

After I realized that I had to handle the bags of pasta/rice very carefully (making moving in/out of rooms VERY difficult), I took a look at the ingredient because I was so skeptical of this whole “zero calories" business. I mean, wouldn’t YOU be? "Grain" products without ANY calories and less than one gram of carbohydrates? What witch business is this?

And so, here is their ingredient list: Zero Net Carbs, Zero Calories, Zero Glycemic Index with the following ingredients: Water, glucomannan (soluble fiber), and calcium additive. No soy, gluten, or wheat! 

At this point, I’m thinking: WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO EAT ..NOTHING????? The only thing you would be consuming would be FIBER. You are essentially eating straight-up fiber with (in my mind) no other nutritious facets to it. 

Health: N/A

I don’t even think I can COMMENT on the “health" factor of this product. Again, WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO EAT SOMETHING THAT HAS NOTHING IN IT? Granted, vegetables are super low in calories… but at least they are nutritious……. 

Flavor: Cartilage/10

Seriously. There is no flavor. And… well, it “tastes" like/has the texture of unflavored tapioca cartilage. 

Conclusion:

Even though there is free shipping, I would not recommend Miracle Rice unless you are super desperate to have /something/ to act as your “flavor-soaker" and to “fill you up." Personally, I would just completely forego Miracle Rice and just eat REAL brown/more-nutritious-than-white rice then eat these tasteless cartilaginous balls.
