Nutritional Contents of Corn and Rice Pasta
Nutritional Contents of Corn and Rice PastaI looked up the nutritional content written on the packages of the Andriani and Le Veneziane pasta.
All nutritional content information is for a 500gm package of pasta:
- Andriani Corn Pasta: Protein 7.5 gms, Carb 78.6 gms, Fat 0.7 gms
- Andriani Rice Pasta: Protein 7.0 gms, Carb 79.6 gms, Fat 0.7 gms
- Le Veneziane Corn Pasta: Protein 7.59 gms, Carb 77.84 gms, Fat 0.69 gms
I was surprised to see how low the fat content is of all these corn and rice pasta. I think I will have more types of corn pasta in the future. I always read the literature and knew that corn pasta and rice pasta were healthier than regular durum wheat pasta. The stats above are hard to ignore. Now, if I could only keep the oil and butter to a minimum when making the pasta sauce
