HISTORY OF THE COMPANY
In 2006, Jonathan Carp, MD was visiting a friend in Japan when she took him to a Buddhist-run vegetarian restaurant on the outskirts of the beautiful city of Kyoto. He was introduced to konnyaku in different shapes and in noodles called shirataki. After discovering the health benefits of this amazing plant-based food and the positive health implications for his patients, he started Miracle Noodle with his family. As Miracle Noodle received positive accolades from the likes of Dr. Oz, Rachael Ray, Rocco Dispirito and being featured in magazines like Cosmo, Men Health, and First for Women and TV shows like The View, ABC News, Hollywood Tonight - the company expanded and so did the product offerings. We now offer a line of products consistent with the health goals of our customers, making healthy eating easy and delicious. All of our products are non-gmo, vegan, and grain free with an ever expanding option of organic options as well.
Our mission is to give our customers peace of mind when it comes to food selection. We do so in 4 ways.
- Providing healthy, delicious, guilt-free eating
- Providing foods that help people heal through providing delicious foods for people with dietary restrictions like diabetes, celiac, certain seizure disorders, 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, healthy fats, and natural.
- Always increasing the quality, sustainable sourcing of our products, and ethical values inculcated to us by our families and giving back a portion of our profits to our Kiva microfinance partners - helping people worldwide.
Jonathan Carp, MD started Miracle Noodle in 2006. A Dermatologist since 2000, in 2004 he had a patient that healed herself from lupus through nutritional and lifestyle modification. Since then, he has treated 100's of patients through lifestyle modification especially nutritional changes with a special interest in auto-immune diseases. This has turned into a nutritional obsession that led to his learning about the health benefits of the konjac plant that our products are mostly made from. While he still practices medicine, a lot of time is now also devoted to Miracle Noodle and finding and testing healthy, healing food options based on foods eaten by traditional cultures. He firmly believes that all that ails us in the world today could be solved by going back a few generations and making sure that the nutritional wisdom of our ancestors is remembered and combined with the latest science. While Miracle Noodle keeps him busy - it has allowed him the resources to investigate and learn about the nutritional wisdom of the world and how to get products and knowledge out to the world through his patients and his companies.
