In 2009, Ross Mendham, a fitness enthusiast who struggled to keep weight off, was looking for a low carb pasta to help him.

He sourced a noodle product from China which achieved the objective, but it had a weird texture, it was slimy and smelly. Ross spent the next 18 months in developing the product, resulting in Bare Naked Foods being established in July 2011.

Initially only sold in local health food shops after an emotional pitch on Dragons’ Den on Sunday 12th August 2013 Ross secured investment from Peter Jones to help develop the business and raise awareness of Barenaked Noodles.

The main ingredient of Barenaked Noodles is Konjac flour which is derived from the root of the Konjac plant ¡V a native of S.E Asia.

The Konjac root is high in fibre and vitamins such as iron, potassium, phosphorous selenium and calcium as well as essential amino acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids.The Konjac root contains between 49%-60% glucomannan fibre as the main carbohydrate which will increase up to 200 times of its original absorbing water, which results in a quick sensation of feeling
full after consuming Konjac products.

Not only do the natural benefits of Konjac assist in a positive diet, consuming this dietary fibre can help you lose weight.

Glucomannan fibre has excellent diabetic supporting effects, such as increasing insulin in the blood sugar levels.
