It's Skinny FAQs

It's Skinny is a new way to enjoy your favorite pasta,
noodle, and rice dishes. We've created a way-better-for-you
alternative—and we're sure you have some questions.


A 9 Calorie Pasta? How is that Possible?

Oh it's possible! Thanks to the miracle superfood konjac, which is naturally low-calorie, carb- and gluten-free, vegan, and keto- and paleo-friendly. It's Skinny's entire line of pastas and rice is made with konjac flour, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite comfort dishes—without any of the guilt. Learn more below.

It’s Skinny Pasta and It’s Skinny Rice are made from konjac flour, which is extraordinarily low in calories. Due to the high fiber content, It’s Skinny contains zero net carbs. It’s Skinny products also contain a small amount of oat powder, water, and calcium hydroxide. These ingredients make It’s Skinny superb at mirroring the taste and experience of traditional pasta.

Konjac is a root vegetable from the yam family. It's naturally gluten-free and vegan. Konjac is acceptable for Paleo, Keto, and Whole30 dieters. The root vegetable is high in satiating glucomannan fiber—helping you stay full and satisfied. You may have heard Konjac pasta referred to as shirataki or "shirataki noodles." The konjac plant is native to Asia, where people have enjoyed it for centuries, particularly in Japanese cuisine.

You’re not alone. Only about 20% of consumers are familiar with konjac root. Shirataki noodles had a questionable reputation before It’s Skinny came along. Other brands of shirataki or “miracle” noodles had a slimy texture and off-putting odor. Fortunately, It’s Skinny Pasta is different. It takes on the surrounding flavors of other ingredients and tastes pretty darn close to Grandma’s traditional spaghetti (without the guilt)!

Yes! Konjac root is super healthy. It’s Skinny pasta is high in fiber, with only nine calories and zero net carbs per serving. The 2 grams of carbohydrates come entirely from dietary fiber, meaning It's Skinny passes through your system without weighing you down. In fact, It's Skinny Pasta is safe for intermittent fasters because it won't break your fast!

It's Skinny is a high-fiber food, so we recommend limiting your consumption to the recommended serving size. As with other fiber-rich foods, we suggest you eat It's Skinny with a glass of water and enjoy a single serving per meal. That said, It's Skinny is a great way to enjoy guilt-free dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a between-meal snack. It won’t break your intermittent fast, and it’s safe for anyone watching carbohydrates, calories, sugar, or other dietary concerns.

We’re a bit biased, but It’s Skinny is truly delicious. Influencers like Jorge Cruise, QCP, and Chef Michelle have worked with and recommended It's Skinny Pasta and Rice. Why? Because It's Skinny tastes exactly like the ingredients you cook with. Our shirataki noodles absorb the flavor of the sauce, toppings, and proteins to make a delicious dish with the texture and mouth-feel of traditional pasta.

We hear from a lot of people who have been put off by other “skinny noodles.” Some konjac products have a strong odor, rubbery texture, or slimy feel. Gross! We worked hard to get the formula and ingredients right to eliminate these issues, including the texture, odor, and any other weirdness. In fact, we've been told that It's Skinny has the best texture of any konjac noodles on the market.

It's Skinny Pasta and Rice are considered shirataki noodles (which means that they're made from konjac root). Unlike other brands of shirataki noodles on the market, like Miracle Noodle, Tofu Shirataki, Pasta Zero, and Skinny Shirataki, we use a unique formula and method to craft our noodles. Our special recipe ensures that It’s Skinny Pasta is the best option to cover those traditional pasta cravings.
