    Yea Lardo, I saw the same video from some knit picky Raw Foodist on youtube. But so far so good. Read up on the stuff and other people who've tried it. It has 3 ingredients, water, kelp, sodium alginate. My only concern was the sodium alginate but it turns out to be just fine. Sodium alginate is considered a soluble fiber. And, similar to other soluble fibers like pectin and psyllium, sodium alginate have hypocholesterolemic and glycemic-regulatory activities. ( I copied and pasted that last sentence, I'm not that smart lol) Anyway I don't trust Raw Foodies, even though I'm dating one lol.

    They don't really taste like anything. When boiled I would compare them, texture wise, to yam or konnyaku noodles.

    I haven't tried the kelp noodles, but I just wanted to say that if the texture is like the shiritake (yam noodles), then to me, the texture is like
    a sauteed mushroom. A little spongy, but biteable... meaning, you don't have to chew it forever to get it to break apart.

    I love the shiritake noodles... and they're on sale right now at Lucky's (at least here in NorCal) for 1.49 a bag.

    Anyway, just sayin'.

    You can soak them in lemon juice and salt while you're working on the rest of your prep (~15 minutes), and then they won't even have that spongy-ness. I eat kelp noodles all the time, either raw or cooked. They have no fishy taste (no taste whatsoever).

    I bought a bag from my local asian food place... they are pretty much taste free. I felt like I was eating plastic. I'd rather have spaghetti squash or not eat spaghetti than eat kelp noodles again.

    I don't love the texture of kelp noodles, but when my husband went low-carb, he absolutely loved them as substitute rice noodles for pho. They don't really have a taste - they just suck up the flavor of whatever you pair them with.

    You can buy them at my local Whole Foods, might be easier for some than mail order.

    Gotta soak. Yah, they are funky if no soak.
