Is pasta healthy?

Pasta can provide some of the key nutrients your body needs as part of a balanced diet.

It’s the perfect vehicle to enjoy fresh vegetables, fish and meats to aid your families 5 a day.

The nutritional benefits of pasta are:

  • SUSTAINED ENERGY: Pasta is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, which provide a slow release of energy to sustain you throughout the day.
  • LOW SODIUM & CHOLESTEROL-FREE: Pasta is very low in sodium and can provide important nutrients including iron and several B-vitamins. Whole wheat pasta can provide up to 25% of daily fibre requirements in every one cup portion.
  • FOLIC ACID: Enriched pasta is fortified with folic acid, which has added benefits during pregnancy.
  • LOW GI: Pasta has a low Glycaemic Index (GI) so it does not cause blood glucose levels to rise quickly. Blood glucose is sometimes referred to as blood “sugar”.
