Konjac root is a gelatin-like substance and not a stimulant in any form. It is used for dieting simply because it has no calories and can "fill you up" since the gelatin does not readily dissolve.  it should not cause a positive drug test for amphetamines. If you tested positive, then something else has likely caused it. You can ask that the test be repeated.
