To better understand why LEMONKIND’s new low-calorie Konjac Boba might be essential to weight loss we should first explain what traditional boba or tapioca pearls are. These tapioca pearls (chewy sugary balls) are an added topping to bubble tea, a Taiwanese milk tea beverage. Unfortunately, boba pearls are high in calorie but add a fun twist on drinking regular tea. 

What is konjac?

The Konjac plant is a Japanese root vegetable naturally full of soluble fiber called glucomannan. Konjac has been gaining recent popularity and for valid reason. Due to its high-fiber and virtually calorie-free ingredients, it makes for a perfect addition to a weight loss diet plan. 

Konjac is a staple of Asian culture (where it is also known as shirataki) and has known benefits on digestion and prolonged sensation of fullness. It essentially has no calories and no carbohydrates making a perfect topping for NUTRIBOBA! 

Why is LEMONKIND’s boba different?

Instead of high-calorie tapioca pearls LEMONKIND has created konjac boba made from konjac flour, resistant tapioca starch, and grass jelly powder - all popular weight management ingredients.

With only 3g of carbs and no added sugar, LEMONKIND’s konjac boba is the perfect addition to our NUTRIBOBA nutrient-dense bubble teas allowing you to feel zero guilt! The bubble teas are delicious and bonus, they are gluten free, vegan, whole-grain, and non-gmo! 

Have there been studies on the benefits of ingesting konjac?

In an eight-week double blind study of 20 obese people, a one gram supplement of glucomannan taken one hour before each meal resulted in a six pound loss over eight weeks. An added bonus was a decline in blood cholesterol level. In a larger placebo-controlled trial of 200 overweight and obese subjects, a mixture of psyllium seed husks (3g) and glucomannan (1g) given either twice or three times resulted in a roughly ten-pound loss over four months.
