Who would have thought delicious, authentic pasta could be eaten by people with diabetes and low carb dieters…

For some of us, pasta can no longer be on the menu. Like people with diabetes who need to watch their blood sugar. Or those on a low carb diet to manage weight. Happily, many who couldn’t eat pasta have discovered a new way to enjoy delicious pasta whenever they want. As long as the pasta they choose is Dreamfields Pasta.

Dreamfields contains inulin, a 100 percent natural prebiotic fiber found in common foods such as artichokes, asparagus, garlic and raisins. By providing a food source for the healthy bacteria living in the gut, prebiotics such as inulin may: help promote healthy digestion, support a healthy immune system, and improve calcium absorption. Inulin is a soluble fiber (like that found in oats, peas and apples) which means it dissolves easily in water and may improve regularity. Soluble fiber can also help reduce cholesterol and glucose levels.

DREAMFIELDS pasta recipe has fewer digestible carbs, the same high fiber as 2 cups of broccoli, and it can help you manage your blood sugar. Dreamfields even has the great taste and al dente texture of authentic pasta. Too good to be true? Our family eats pasta a few times per week, DREAMFIELDS is great! We had the Linguine last night it was amazing!

Total Carbs: 42
Controlled Carbs: 37

Thanks for the tip! I am diabetic and it's hard when you're only allowed 35 to 45 carbs per meal! Plus, I have been trying very hard to loose weight. I'll look for this pasta at my local grocery store.

What a shame we can't get it here! My husband has type 2 Diabetes so tries hard to not eat pasta, and he loves it.

To Answer Sunshine Mama's question about carbs, each serving (2 ounces dry or about 1 to 1 1/2 cups cooked) of Dreamfields contains 190 calories. However, because of our protected carb technology, it is thought that Dreamfields could have as little as 129 calories per serving. That being said, in order to make this claim on the nutrition facts panel significant testing must be completed.

Thanks again for such a great post and your interest in Dreamfields healthy pasta!
