Japanese company develops noodle flour made from trees

            A Japanese textiles company has extended the technology by which it creates fibre from wood pulp, and developed a new type of noodle flour made from trees.
Okimenshi Co already produces a fibre from tree pulp called rayon, and will use a similar manufacturing process to create a healthier alternative to wheat noodles. The process combines the pulp made from a tree’s indigestible cellulose with the yam-like konjac plant to produce a fibre-rich flour branded Cell-Eat.
The flour can be used by food manufacturers to create a gluten-free, fat-free and almost carbohydrate-free noodle, ramen or dumpling dish that compares favourably against wheat-based offerings: for instance, each kilogram of Cell-Eat noodle delivers just 60 calories, compared to more than 3,500, Okimenshi said.
The Osaka-based company has spotted a niche within Japan’s health food market and is now seeking to capitalise on the ¥1.2 trillion ($9.82bn) industry.

Feel sorry for the next generation they would not know what real food is soon !
