Can I have bean threads?

Recommended Posts

I still do not see bean thread listed there. So are you telling me that if they are made from yam starch or cassava starch they are OK. Just not if made from mung bean starch or potato starch? Really, it's kind of confusing because bean threads are on many gluten free menus. Thanks.

I guess I would put these in a similar category as making "zoodles" out of zucchini, which is ok on a Whole30.

If they are made from only yam or cassava, you're fine.

 

However, if they're made from mung bean, green peas or potato starch (or contain any other non-compliant Whole30 ingredient), that would be a no, as none of those ingredients are allowed on a Whole30.

Have you tried Korean yam starch noodles?  It taste the same as the mung bean thread but it is chewier and thicker? https://www.walmart.com/ip/assi-Sweet-Potato-Noodles-Jangteo-12-Ounce/830249119?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=4657&adid=22222222227096709342&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=214134540175&wl4=pla-344557803782&wl5=9032807&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=113734502&wl11=online&wl12=830249119&wl13=&veh=sem
