LOL. You found the right thread for the noodle link FIT_HAWG. I came to do the same thing, so thanks for adding the NN link. I'll add another for the same KELP NOODLE subject: healthycoachkelp . I haven't found them in my neck o'the woods to say how they taste.
NOTE: If you have thyroid disease, please discuss kelp in the diet with your nutritionist and/or doctor, as it can help or disrupt your thyroid function.
I use one that is made with bean flour and it takes on the flavor of the food that it is in.
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Dot, Sweet potatoes are in a different family so they should be safe for you. "Although the sweet potato, whose scientific name is Ipomoea batatas, belongs to the same plant order as the nightshades (Polemoniales), it does not belong to the Solanaceae family found in this order, but to a different plant family called Convolvulaceae."
I do not know if these are the same ones I tried but the descriptions sound the same. I was not impressed. When I followed the cooking instructions, they were hard and chewy. My family told me not to buy them again. With them being derived from sweet potatoes, I do not know how they do away with carbs, but some how they do. I first learned about them from About.com Low Carb Newsletter.
I only cursory perused the site and listened to the news piece, so yams, yes, is what I remember. Potatoes are a nightshade, and I'm nightshade free; I've never seen sweet potatoes or yams on a nightshade list, so maybe they're a different family. I don't have time to check: gotta get groceries!
I remembered the other noodle name: shiratake (sp). They also have glucomannan, but are made from the konjac tree. Low-carbers use them, and they are also gf. I brought some home from the health food store and Dd thought they were gross. However, she didn't "chef" them up at all.
Be curious! If health is wealth, I'm aiming to be stinking rich!
