Konjac is a root vegetable that looks like an oddly shaped potato. The plant's bulb — the underground section of the plant – contains glucomannan, a soluble fiber. Soluble fiber absorbs water to produce a gel-like substance, which inhibits digestion. It can aid in the reduction of blood cholesterol and glucose levels. Oats, beans, apples, citrus fruits, carrots, and psyllium all contain soluble fiber.

Trade restrictions, border closures, and confinement measures have made it difficult for farmers to reach the market to acquire inputs and sell produce.

Owing to these elevated hazards, there is an increased global market for dietary supplements for weight loss. To accomplish long-term weight loss, health experts advocate reduced calorie intake and maintain a balanced dietary pattern. During the crisis, there was a high level of awareness about lifestyle modifications and healthier eating choices, which may help the konjac business gain traction in the coming years.
