What makes Shileo different from other industrially processed foods?
Many food companies try to sell their products as "light", "non-fat" and "no added sugar". "Light" simply indicates that it's less heavy than the regular recipe (yet still unhealthy), "no fat" usually means that sugar is added to increase the flavoring, and "no added sugar" could mean that other artificial ingredients are added in order to compensate. We believe food should be light as a rule, and not only reduced in unhealthy ingredients. You shouldn't feel sleepy or hungry after a meal, especially when you're trying to lose weight.
Does Shileo increase intestinal transit and digestion?
Our meals contain between 0 and 1g of fiber. Depending on your diet, especially if you have a general diet which is low in fiber, your body may need to get used to the increase in fibre intake, but this should soon pass. Please check each individual product page to see the exact value.
Is Shileo gluten free?
We're 100% gluten free
Can I lose weight on Shileo?
In addition regular activity and an appropriate diet - absolutely! Shileo contains glucomanan, a fiber naturally present in konjac roots. Glucomanan can help you with weight loss as well as maintaining normal blood cholesterol levels (link)
Why is it named Shileo?
It is a portmanteau of the first letters of the word "shirataki", the traditional Japanese noodles made of konjac, and the word "leo", which is not only an animal which stands for power and strength, but is also the Anja's (one of our two founders) zodiac sign.

What is the taste of the Shileo konjac noodles and rice?
The konjac rice and noodles have a similar structure and taste to Chinese vermicelli. Our products don't have fishy smell, which is very often the case with konjac from competitors. Their natural taste is neutral, but any sauce, spices or herbs added to them will give them a nice flavour.

How does konjac / glucomannan help with weight loss, as well as contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels?
According to Commission Regulation No. 432/2012 of the European Union, glucomannan aids weight loss and normalises blood cholesterol levels if taken in the amount of 4g a day, in three 1g (minimum) portions each. It's important to consume it with plenty of water to ensure the substance reaches the stomach.
How many carbohydrates are in Shileo foods?
We're 100% transparent on all of our packaging. But usually we try to keep it at a minimum. To double check, please visit each item's page to check out all the macronutrients and their amounts. To give you a point of comparision, 100g of bread contains 78g of carbs.
How much protein is in Shileo dishes?
Please check each individual product page to see the exact value.
How much lipid (fat) is in Shileo dishes?
Our meals contain 0 grams of lipids and 0 grams of trans fats ("bad fat").
Why pre-cook Shileo products?
So that the Shileo products with their high fiber content do not stick together in the dried state, small amounts of tapioca starch as well as syrup are used in the production process. These wash out again slightly during cooking, which is why we recommend in many recipes to pre-cook the Shileo products and pour off the cooking water.
How much glucomannan is there in your products?
Our noodles contain 11% glucomannan, our rice 17% and our flour around 80-90%.

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. :)
