    I'm very excited to try these. I ordered some from Amazon - a little more expensive, but free two day shipping for me as I have Prime.

    My favorite dish my whole life used tobe meat sauce on spaghetti noodles, rice or potatoes.
    Since going primal I haven't made my favorite dish in 2 years!!! Because I don't eat those starchy staples anymore.
    These kelp noodles have 0.1 gr of Carbs!!!!!! (they have to be listed as a whole number on Carb so it's rounded up to 1%.
    Now I can enjoy my favorite dish with almost no carbs...how awesome is that?

    Here is my BEST reference to be found on the subject of Iodine. This confirms what the Japanese get in Iodine from their seafoods.
    Bottom line, 15 mg iodine a day from seafoods is ideal for health, by Dr. Michael B. Schachter:
    Iodine

    PS) I got these noodles from iHerb for only $3 per 16 oz package with free shipping. Far less expensive than Amazon.
    We have also tried them in our Turkey Stew. . . GREAT !

    Issabeau, THANK YOU for starting this thread.

    If they don't have any of the nasties that wheat noodles have, I'm more than willing to give these a go if I can find any. I did love pasta, but don't miss it that much. But if these work out then that's more variety for my diet.

    Hello, does anyone know how long do they keep for in the fridge once opened? Should they be kept in water? If so, should the water be changed out daily (like you would for tofu)? Any info would be great!

    You definitely CAN get too much iodine. And that can be its own problem. Just like all things, moderation is in order here, even for the good things. Just don't make 'em every night and tell the man to simmer down about his "spaghetti" cravings. I mean really... I think that ordering "replacement foods" like kelp noodles for recreating non-primal faves is kind of missing the point. You can do it every once in a while, but if you do it regularly, you aren't really getting out there and trying the tons of new food experiences you could be having by eating this new diet.

    I wonder how seaside hunter/gatherers felt about iodine excess? I guess eating real food, straight from nature sorted itself out by itself without intervention from nutritionalist advice.

    My sincere apologies if that seems to be confrontational, since I genuinely do appreciate anyone who has something good to say. I am a firm believer in eating real, whole food and leaving nature to sort out the contradictions for me.
