This is for all of my Di’1s that love pasta! but are going Gluten-free. If however you just love regular pasta and you’re not going Gluten-free then skip this and (Click Here).
Now I know there are many of you who have no choice but to be Gluten-free everything because of Celiac disease or just very sensitive to Gluten, which in the process you had to give up on your fav dish (Yes I read the comments).. well I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to give up on your fav dishes.
I’ve got for you, the top 4 Gluten-free pastas that your tummy will thank me for.
Chickpea pasta is a new type of Gluten-free pasta which you may not have heard of until now, it got a lot of buzz and was spoken about highly of by other health experts.
There is a company called “Banza” and they were founded in 2013, and they sell Chickpea Pasta.
I’ve actually eaten it before and it tastes very much like Pasta, the only difference really is, it has the flavour of chickpeas and is more chewy too.
The good news is that it’s very high in fibre and packs 7g’s of it, also it has 13 g’s of protein.
Protein and fibre leave you feeling fuller for longer (Click Here) and can help reduce the amount of food you eat during the day (BECAUSE YOU’RE FULL)
Which helps you with your weight management (Click Here put a link to fibre foods).
Quinoa Pasta is the go-to Gluten-free substitute for the majority of Pasta eaters, but if you’re not familiar with Quinoa Pasta then you should know that it’s blended from Quinoa with other corn and rice and other grains.
It tastes really nice and has a grainy texture to it.
Quinoa is a whole grain and has many health benefits (Click Here)
It has all of the nine essential amino acids that your body needs (Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, and Valine)
Quinoa is also a great source for other Vitamins and minerals such as Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron & Phosphorus.
Quinoa pasta is rich in fibre too, providing 3g’s of fibre in each dry pasta.. so when adding it all up it’s going to be a lot of fibre in one meal.
There are so many Gluten-free pastas that are made using a blend of different grains, including Millet, Corn, Buckwheat, Quinoa, Amaranth & Rice.
The nutritional value of these varieties of Pasta can vary based on the type of grains used.
I would say that it can contain anywhere between 4 to 9 g’s and 1 to 6 grams of fibre.
Multigrain pasta is the closest in taste and texture to regular Pasta out there.
However with this Pasta you must pay closer attention to the ingredients labels and steer clear of products loaded with fillers.
What I mean by that, is additives and Gluten-containing ingredients.
It’s like the Vegetable oil situation which has no Vegetable in whatsoever (Click Here)
Brown Rice Pasta
Brown Rice Pasta is number one on the popularity scale of Gluten-free Pasta due to exposure in the media and it’s mild flavour.
This is a great substitute instead of regular Pasta even for those who eat Gluten.
Compared to other pastas, Brown rice pasta is a good source of fibre, as it has 4 g’s of it.
Brown Rice is also high in important micronutrients such as Selenium & Magnesium.
Many research studies have shown that the bran found in Brown Rice is loaded with antioxidants, which are powerful compounds that can help fight Oxidative damage to cells and promote better health.
I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys. Please do let me know though…
