Don't think theyre strictly primal, but with such low carbs I don't see why you shouldn't try them if you feel like it Just don't make em a staple, and if you find they affect you negatively just don't eat em again!
From what I can gather they are a bit rubbery. That may be a turn off. I love asian soups especially Pho which is a Vietnamese soup. I could eat the meat and drink the broth but I would need a really big bowl to fill me up if I didn't eat the noodles.
I've used them a bunch. They aren't rubbery; it's more like "springy" feeling as you bite into them. Some brands are quite soft, though and not springy.
They have no flavor at all, so I rinse off the seaweedy-smelling water they come in and boil them in salted water for about 10 min to flavor them and soften them a bit.
I use them in Asian soups and as a base for curries (you can pulse them in a food processor to get a rice-like quality) or like pasta with creamy sauces. I really like them.
