shirataki noodles means: The noodles are thin, translucent, and long. They’re made with very fine gelatinous strands called “konnyaku”, which comes from the Japanese devil’s tongue plant. They are slightly sticky and do not contain any flavor. They will absorb the flavors of any broth, or other ingredients that are used in the recipe in which the noodles are cooked. You can buy them dried, or in plastic containers that give it a sausage shape. You can also find them packaged in cans. (in Cooking Dictionary)
