Pasta - everything you need to know about this product

Oct 19, 2022 Michał Pelc

The first association with pasta? Of course Italy. After all, this country is considered his homeland. There are even people who say that, apart from Italy, we will not eat good pasta. And yet. There are so many types of this delicacy on the market (apparently over 600) that you can and even have to argue with this thesis….

What do we love pasta for? First of all, because they are easy to prepare, nutritious and many of their varieties provide us with the necessary nutrients. Of course, you have to add that pasta can be prepared in 1000 different ways, sweet, salty, with vegetables, fruit, sauces, baked, boiled, etc. In this respect, only our imagination is the limit. Of course, there is also the question of choosing a good pasta ...

Now it is wholemeal pasta!

Why? It is much healthier than classic white pasta and is recommended for people on slimming diets. Wholemeal pasta is made from wholemeal flour, has much more fiber than white flour, and is a rich source of nutrients:

  • phosphorus, iron
  • manganese
  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • and vitamins of group B.

Thanks to this composition, wholemeal pasta helps to maintain the correct level of cholesterol, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease - especially heart disease, and also has a positive effect on our bones.

Wholemeal pasta is digested much longer, so after eating it, we feel full for a long time and, which is important for people on a diet, we do not feel like snacking.
How do we eat wholemeal pasta? Nothing easier than that. We cook it al dente and serve it with your favorite sauce, vegetables or add to salads.

Spelled pasta - a classic in a new version

You can really write a lot about spelled pasta that you can find here . It is not only good, but also has many health-promoting properties. First of all, it should be mentioned that it is a source of unsaturated fatty acids, protein and fiber . The last ingredient will definitely interest people on slimming diets - it swells in the stomach, providing a feeling of fullness, and also supports metabolism and accelerates intestinal peristalsis. This product also includes B vitamins, PP, iron, zinc, potassium and calcium.
Spelled pasta struggles with a decline in immunity and periodic lack of energy - e.g. in the fall. How does it taste? It has a delicate aftertaste of nuts - therefore it can be combined with vegetables - also baked, nuts or smoked fish. Of course, it also goes well with traditional pesto or sauce. Everything at your discretion.

Buckwheat noodles - healthy as porridge ...

... buckwheat. It is an excellent and fortunately more and more common on our market alternative to traditional - wheat pasta. For this alternative, rich in vitamins and minerals . It contains much more potassium and magnesium than its wheat counterpart, it has a lot of protein (about 11g per 100g of pasta). It does not contain gluten - therefore it is recommended for people suffering from celiac disease. Buckwheat noodles - you can find them here - have a delicate taste, thanks to which they can be combined with many dishes - including salads. It should also be added that the cooking time of this pasta is about 6 minutes.

Noodles should be eaten - of course, its healthier counterparts are best, which will not harm our figure. Remember, however, that when choosing this delicacy for yourself, pay attention to the fact that the magic word BIO appears on the packaging - then we will be sure that we will get a truly top-quality product, made of certified crops.
