NuPasta is a low calorie & gluten free pasta. The texture is chewy, similar to al dente pasta (firm to bite).
A full plate (210g) of regular cooked pasta contains about 300 calories and 2g of dietary fibre, the same amount of NuPasta contains 25 calories and 6g of dietary fibre. NuPasta is also gluten free.
Regular pasta is made with wheat, a starch which has calories. NuPasta is made with the root of the konjac plant which is rich in dietary fibre and has no starch. The absence of starch is the reason why NuPasta is so low in calories.
Foods are often considered healthy for the nutrients, vitamin or mineral content. In the case of NuPasta, we emphasize the reduction of certain macro nutrients such as fats and carbohydrates. By replacing the starches in regular pasta with the fibre of the konjac plant, we substantially reduce the intake of calories in your meal without changing the portion size. With 6g of dietary fibre, NuPasta is able to satisfy your hunger without excess carbohydrates and fats.
