The BEST Pure Protein Noodles
I took a group of people to Greece this past September for a keto trip of a lifetime! I always make friends for life with the people who come on my adventures around the World and 2 of my new friends are Vito and Aubrey!
Vito and Aubrey are from Toronto Canada and they own a successful restaurant. Vito is quite the chef and I learned a lot from him when we were in Greece.
Oh and YOU should join me on my next adventure to Italy this June! I also have a trip this September to Croatia! Click HERE to learn more!
WHERE THE RECIPE FOR PURE PROTEIN NOODLES CAME FROM
They recently visited us in Maui and they cooked for us at the Keto Condo! Vito made us the BEST pure protein noodles with a truffle cream sauce! He also made garlic shrimp to go with the dish since he knew I loved shrimp (I ate Shrimp Sakanaki in Greece just about every single day!).
I never made pure protein noodles like this before! They are made from water, gelatin and egg white powder. They told me they adapted Indigo Nili’s recipe and it is an absolute hit! Even Kai ate the leftovers the next day and said it was even better leftover!
HOW TO MAKE PURE PROTEIN NOODLES
To make my Protein Sparing Noodles, I used Further Food Gelatin! Adding gelatin to my protein sparing noodles adds a delicious chewy texture!
Further Food gelatin and collagen peptides are both excellent sources of collagen. Both their Collagen & Gelatin are sourced from the highest quality, grass-fed, pasture-raised, hormone-free, and antibiotic free bovine collagen.
The benefits of collagen and gelatin are astounding! Just eating my delicious Protein Sparing Noodles helps support skin elasticity & hydration, longer hair & nails, stronger bones & joints, faster recovery between workouts, increased flexibility, improved digestion, and it even keeps you feeling full and satiated for longer!
Further Food Collagen Peptides dissolve instantly in any recipe, and Gelatin Powder naturally thickens recipes. It’s perfect for making the BEST pure protein noodles, dairy free ice cream, jello, sugar free gummies, no bake cheesecake, or panna cotta!

The BEST Keto Noodles
- 550 grams water
- 80 grams Further Food gelatin
- 120 grams Egg white powder
- 2.5 grams Redmond Real Salt
- Place all the ingredients into a blender and purée until smooth.
- Heat a large 12 inch non-stick scan pan to medium heat. Lightly spray with avocado oil spray and dab it with a paper towel. Pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the pan and tilt the pan to spread the batter all over the pan in and so it is a very thin crepe. Once the batter has set and is almost cooked through, gently flip the crepe (I used my fingers but be careful to not burn yourself). Cook another 30-60 seconds. Make sure the crepes do not brown at all.
- Remove from pan and repeat with remaining batter.
- Place 4 cooked crepes together in a stack. Roll up like a jelly roll and slice into fettuccine noodles.
- Serve with your favorite sauce. Store extras in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Hopefully this will provide some inspiration for people that are on the fence about Emmerich Keto.In the before pictures, my husband was pre-diabetic and was also on blood pressure medication. His knees hurt to the point that he went to the doctor to find out what he could do about it. And me, on the other hand, I was a walking bag of inflammation and so uncomfortable in my own skin. By the end of each day, my feet were swollen beyond recognition and it hurt to walk. I was also on two different blood pressure meds. Now, a few years into this lifestyle, we are both OFF ALL medications, our joints are pain free and it no longer hurts me to walk!Do we get off track sometimes? Oh yes! But, we have the tools provided by Maria Emmerich and Craig Emmerich to get back on.Being a new year, I decided to take my measurements and really track my macros for awhile, also incorporating some PSMF days. In ONLY 6 days, I’ve lost 7 pounds. I’m not sure of my total weight lost from the beginning because I didn’t dare weigh myself for the first little while, but 30 that I know of.My husband has lost ~65 pounds.If we can do this, anyone can!!!” – Janna

What’s with the metric measurements?? I have no idea what 550 grams of water is. Can you please list the measurements in imperial weight also? Thank you!
They are measurements in weight. This recipe is very precise 🙂
These noodles are a game changer! I’ve made everything from shrimp scampi to pad tai! I’m going to try the tuna salad recipe next! I made them for my brother with type 2 diabetes and he was so excited to be able to have noodles with no carbs!!!
You made my day!!
I need to try these. Would they freeze ok?
They are best served fresh 🙂
Could you substitute liquid egg white for the powdered and some/all of the water?
Not for this recipe. I have another that calls for liquid egg whites: https://mariamindbodyhealth.com/easy-protein-sparing-noodles/
Thanks. I look forward to trying it.
Can you use other non Flavored gelatin?
Hi again, Maria. You NEVER cease to amaze me!! THANK YOU for another wonderful recipe. And the video that shows you making it too. I love learning by watching. And once again, you provide this for FREE!! You’re wonderful. Quick question: Will these noodles melt or change texture if you pour a hot sauce over it, like, say, a warm cream based sauce? Just asking since the noodles are made with gelatin… Thank you again for all you & Craig do for your audience.
You are SO kind! The noodles are best served fresh, but they hold up well to hot sauces. I would not sauté them in a pan or boil them or they will fall apart.
Would love to learn about your Croatia trip! The link in the post isn’t active.
I hope you can come! https://www.millevietravel.com/croatia
Thanks for the recipe, very Tasty!! I did have an issue, I was only able to make 2 crepes before the batter became too gelatinous to spread in the pan. I weighed all the ingredients, do you have any suggestions so that this doesn’t happen again? Thank you for all you do, you are an inspiration!!
Hmm, I’m not sure. Try adding a touch of water and reblending if that happens again 🙂
I just tried this recipe myself and it’s F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C!! The texture, the neutral flavor and mouth feel. To me, it’s just like pasta. Seriously. And the simple fact that it’s pretty much zero carb and carnivore!! This “pasta” is phenomenal. Truly!! I’m doing strict carnivore including NO dairy this month but was wanting to try these so badly. I didn’t want to use any tomato or veg based sauce just to keep it as close to zero carb as possible, nor was I going to use any dairy based sauce (although an Alfredo would be divine – I’ll try that when I’m ready to introduce dairy again) so I decided to use EVOO, add some garlic & onion powders along with some dried Italian herbs & crushed red pepper flakes. I’m telling you… INCREDIBLE!! Let’s be honest, the only reason why people enjoy pasta is because of the stuff we put on it… nobody I know, enjoys just PLAIN pasta, right!!
I do have a question: I, too, did experience a similar thing as Diana… I used just half the recipe and was able to make about 6 total but at around the 4th one, the mixture became too gelatinous to spread in the pan after sitting in my Nutribullet awaiting for my previous ones to cook. I also weighed all the ingredients precisely. I was wondering if this recipe of yours could be done with liquid egg whites? Maybe from a carton? If so, how much would you say? I’m asking since I know sometimes the powder form does tend to render a thicker “batter” than liquid whites. Just wondering if you think the liquid form would ruin the texture or taste? This way that you have here DOES NOT taste “eggy” AT ALL. This is phenomenal. Thank you for all you do, you are a continued inspiration!!
I’m so glad you liked it! This recipe is extremely precise and you cannot change ingredients or it won’t work.
Hi Maria. Just wondering what you think about the study on erythritol. I feel we need to know more about how the study was done and how healthy the participants were. So many variables and so hard to know if you can trust the studies. I love your cookbooks and have been following you for 6 years. Thanks for all your help!! Therese
It is a very problematic study. Watch this: https://youtu.be/pTUWGr9RZ5o
These noodles are fabulous! And I’m Italian! I’ve lost almost 60 lbs on keto and I love being able to have noodles. I used them with pork tenderloin with mushroom cream sauce. I made half a recipe so it didn’t get too gelatinous to spread in the pan. Thank you so much for such a wonderful recipe. I really am looking forward to trying some of your others.
You made my day!! 🙂
Can these be baked in the oven like your other protein noodles, Maria? I have a lot of egg white powder on hand so this looks great!
These turn out best when you follow the measurements and cooking instructions exactly as written 😉
Pro tip: I found it works best to blend the egg white powder, water and salt, then blend in the gelatin. When I added the gelatin to the water first, then measured other ingredients, it got very thick quickly and was hard to blend.
This is a great option to the recipe with liquid egg whites, thanks so much!
This was awesome! My husband was skeptical but he was impressed, as well. Thanks for the keeper!
