What sets Shileo apart from other vendors of konjac products?
Unlike other companies, Shileo only sells dried konjac pasta and rice, which are also known as Shirataki. Not over-impressed with the preserved versions, Shileo founders Anja & Cyrille spent almost a year tracking down dried konjac rice and dried konjac noodles. Their search was ultimately successful. Long story short, they then founded Shileo. The dried Shileo products are not just 100% non-slimy and odorless, the dried consistency means they can be transformed into any kind of dish, whether sweet or savory. All our products absorb your sauces perfectly. In addition, the much higher content of the healthy flour made from the konjac root makes you feel fuller more quickly, helping achieve your weight-loss goal.
Do Shileo products aid digestion and increase bowel movements?
Our meals contain high amounts of fiber. Depending on your previous diet, the higher fiber intake may lead to increased bowel movements for a short period. But don't worry, this won't harm you in any way. On the contrary, it will have a positive effect on your intestinal flora in the long term.
Are Shileo products gluten free?
Shileo products are 100% gluten free and are thus quite safe, even if you have a sensitive stomach.
Will Shileo really help me lose weight?
It might sound incredible, but it's true. Studies carried out by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) showed a correlation between weight loss and one of the main ingredients of the konjac root - konjac glucomannan. According to the study, konjac glucomannan may aid weight loss when consumed as part of a low-calorie diet. The positive effect was found to occur with a daily intake of 3g konjac glucomannan, consumed in three portions of 1g along with 1-2 glasses of water before meals and as part of a low-calorie, balanced diet. As a guide, 100 g of prepared Shileo konjac rice contain roughly 17g konjac glucomannan, while 100 g of prepared Shileo konjac pasta contain roughly 11g konjac glucomannan. As our products contain large amounts of the health-enhancing, high-fiber flour of the konjac root, you must take care to drink enough water when eating Shileo products to ensure they reach the stomach. Unfortunately, due to the enormous swelling property of konjac glucomannan, our products are not suitable for children or consumers with swallowing difficulties as there is a risk of choking. Shileo products must be cooked before eating. It goes without saying that konjac is not a miracle cure. The products are not a substitute for a balanced, varied diet and a healthy lifestyle. For example, if you only eat konjac pasta at lunchtime but indulge in two large burgers in the evening, it's not suprising if you don't lose any weight. But if you stick to a healthy, varied and balanced diet, you may well achieve your weight-loss goal quickly and keep the pounds off in the long term. We frequently receive heart-warming emails from customers telling us their weight-loss stories. If you would like to share your success with us, we'd be delighted to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
What was the inspiration behind the name Shileo?
The two founders Anja and Cyrille came up with the name. It is a portmanteau of the first letters of the word "shirataki", or white waterfall, the traditional Japanese name for noodles made of konjac, which have been eaten for centuries, and the word "leo". This symbolizes not just the power and strength of the team behind the company, it's also Anja's star sign.
In what countries is Shileo available?
We currently ship to all EU countries and Switzerland but have a particularly strong presence in German-speaking regions.
What do Shileo konjac noodles and rice taste like?
The konjac rice and noodles have a similar structure and taste to Chinese vermicelli. Their neutral flavor goes well with all side dishes and sauces. Because they are dried, Shileo pasta and rice don't have the fishy smell of other konjac noodles. When cooked, they absorb any sauce, spices or herbs added to them.
The product arrived quickly, the quality is amazing (not the slimy wet konjac substitutes that smell fishy). Cooking time is around 12-15 min, so the rice is perfect for making risotto or paella. The pasta is also amazing with some good carbonara, pesto or bolognese! They are perfect for a keto or low-carb lifestyle!
Excellent support. Fast delivery. Low carb.
Products are high quality (dried instead of preserved in liquid), very delicious and have the perfect texture when prepared as stated. Taste / texture can be compared with glass noodles (in my opinion). Thumbs up and 5+ stars :-) Keep going!
OK this company is amazing. I purchased the konjak rice. I'm on a keto diet so thought this would be perfect for me.
It was amazing ! Easy to cook and honestly the closest thing to actual rice I've tried so far. And I've tried alot of products.
Egg fried rice is my favourite dish because frying the konjak rice makes it that bit more crispier and rice like.
Anyway, delivery was fast, Communication too.
The only thing I would say is that they should provide the booklet that is also delivered, in English as well as German.. for those who don't speak German.
But it was easy to cook so it didn't make a difference
THANK YOU SHILEO, I've ordered another set. :)
