Are Arrowroot Vermicelli Noodles paleo approved?

I purchased arrowroot noodles in an Asian food store because I know arrowroot powder is paleo... but I didn't know if the arrowroot vermicelli noodles were.

CDone: arrowroot noodles can definitely come out slimy if you use only arrowroot powder. But I found a FABULOUS recipe this past autumn, for paleo egg noodles that are half and half arrowroot and almond flour (with the tiniest bit of xantham gum and salt). Something about the addition of the almond flour makes ALL the difference in the world, I don't know why. But with, they're just like normal wheat noodles! It's great for family who's not behind the 'paleo' thing.

take any paleo recipe that calls for noodles (they could use arrow root, shirataki, zuchinni, etc) and put the arrowroot ones in.

Personally I tried arrowroot once, slimy and grimey. I will stick with zoodles.

What are the ingredients? Never saw them before so I have no idea.

Some people would tell you to "just real real food," I am not one of those people. If the carbs are an issue, kelp noodles and shirataki (made from yam, NOT the soy version) are excellent noodle substitutions

Arrowroot is an important weapon in my arsenal--otherwise, I wouldn't be able to thicken gravy when I roast a chicken! :)

Arrowroot is super nutrient dense, but also fairly carby if that's a concern.

Thanks for the info! Yes the ingredients are arrowroot flour, water and salt. I have never seen any paleo recipes using this ingredient so I wasn't sure. Thanks again. I'll keep you posted on how they turn out!

if the ingredients are just arrowroot and water, then it's all good.

if you 'allow' yourself rice, you can also try rice vermicelli, ingredients rice and water.
