Glass Noodles FAQ
Most glass noodles from China are made of mung bean starch. Glass noodles made in Korea and Japan tend to be made from sweet potato starch. Some use other starches, such as arrowroot or tapioca. The Rothy glass noodles, however, are made from Cassava starch. These have already gone through the steaming process, so they take less time to cook than dried noodles. They're also lower in calories than traditional wheat noodles and are naturally gluten-free.
The Rothy glass noodles are softer and much chewier than wheat noodles. The taste, however, is very similar. Both have sweet and spicy notes; I found the regular glass noodles to be more to my taste than the spicy red noodles, but if you like spice, go for the red noodles!
Rothy glass noodles are so easy to make! Unlike other dried wide noodles that need to soak in water before cooking for 4 to 8 hours, Rothy noodles don't need to soak before cooking. It's recommended that you boil the noodles for 7 to 8 minutes and then cook for 2 to 3 minutes more with the sauce.
