We do not recommend eating leftover Skinny Noodles or "Rice" after 3 days.
Why do Skinny Noodles and Skinny "Rice" have an "odd" smell?
Don't worry! The ocean-like scent comes from a combination of konnyaku (a root native to Asia) and the natural alkaline water used to keep Skinny Noodles and "Rice" fresh and shelf-stable with no preservatives. The scent does not mean there is anything wrong with the products. When you drain and rinse Skinny Noodles and "Rice" thoroughly, the scent disappears completely and leaves behind no taste. If you like, you can add a drop or two of vinegar to the water used to rinse Skinny Noodles and "Rice"; rinse until the vinegar scent is removed and drain thoroughly.
