UK-based low-carb food brand Srlsy has added a new vegan spaghetti bolognese product to its ready meal range.
The brand’s plant-based rethink on a ‘timeless classic’ contains 17.9g of carbs, compared with the 50-60g you would expect from a similar-sized portion of traditional spaghetti bolognese.
Wheat-based spaghetti has been replaced with konjac-based noodles in the development of the low-carb product. Konjac noodles are made from the root of the konjac yam plant and are popular in health-conscious Asian cuisine due to being gluten-free and low in calories.
Srsly’s founder, Andy Welch, commented: “Everyone accepts that today ready meals are a mainstay of today’s hectic life schedules”.
Welch added that the brand saw a “well-timed opportunity” for konjac-based noodles, with their “impressive low glycemic index to come to the fore and replace wheat-based spaghetti” in the product.
