Cornstarch Noodles



Cornstarch Noodles are noodles made in the Philippines from cornstarch, rice flour and water.

They are sold dried, and are very brittle like this. Some manufacturers ship them in special foam bags because of this.

They are translucent and slippery when cooked.

Cooking Tips

Soak in hot water first to soften them before using in soups or salads.

Language Notes

In Tagalog, they are called "pancit luglug". "luglug" is meant to be the sound made while they are being drained.
