HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
In 2008, Enza Giardina, Australian Naturopath, Herbalist and published author, was introduced to konnyaku noodles (also called shirataki), which have been enjoyed in Japan and China for over 1,400 years.
Made from the Konjac plant, this wonder food is 97% water with 3% soluble fibre – called glucomannan -- (plus a natural calcium additive to help the noodles keep their shape). That’s it!
After realizing the health benefits of this amazing plant-based food and the positive health implications for her patients, Enza started ZERO Noodles in 2011 with the help of her family.
As ZERO Noodles received positive accolades from other Australian Naturopaths, Doctors and Dieticians and being featured in several Australian newspapers and magazine like Health & Wellbeing, Living Now, InnerSelf, and Nexus - the company expanded and so did the product offerings to include Rice, Fettuccini and Lasagna style.
We now offer a line of products consistent with the health goals of our customers, making healthy eating easy, guilt-free and delicious. All of our products are Australian certified organic, non-gmo, vegan, and grain free.
Our mission is to give our customers peace of mind when it comes to food selection. We do so in 4 ways.
- We truly do our best to bring you premium ingredients in their finest form, packed in purified water in a BPA free packaging.
- Provide healthy, delicious, guilt-free eating foods for people with dietary restrictions like diabetes, celiac, and general weight loss goals.
- Providing foods that take the anxiety out of eating by adhering to strict guidelines on sodium, calories, non-gmo, gluten free and natural.
- Always researching and improving the quality of our products, and giving back a portion of our profits to helping people worldwide.
With a background in Naturopathy and an Italian heritage, I was always interested in Konjac (also called Shirataki) as a light and healthy alternative to noodles, rice & pasta. In 2011, with the help of my family, we decided to make these wonder products available to everyone in Australia and New Zealand.
Life is a combination of magic and pasta”, filmmaker Federico Fellini once said, and we have the best pasta, rice and noodles substitute for people with dietary challenges, so that everyone can enjoy “La Dolce Vita”.
