War on Food: Konnyaku, the Deadly Savory Jelly

Konnyaku steak こんにゃくステーキMade from the starch of Devil’s Tongue, a subtropical plant, the pulp is turned into a grey jelly that is used in a range of dishes in Japan.

Unfortunately, anyone who bites off more than they can chew can end up choking to death due to the elasticity of the food.

According to a task force of the Consumer Affairs Agency, 22 people have died in the last 16 years after eating konnyaku – the vast majority either the elderly or young people.

The photo inset is konnyaku in its steak form. Yes. Steak. The Flickr search is very…enlightening.

Any product derived from a plant called Devil’s Tongue is just asking for trouble.
