Dreamfields Pasta - Review

Monday, February 15, 2010 Posted by Rita A

Growing up in an Italian family our meal of choice has always been pasta. I crave a good dinner of spaghetti with tomato or meat sauce. Dreamfields Pasta is good and good for you.

Dreamfields is a delicious pasta with about the same high fiber as whole wheat pasta (5 grams; 20% of the daily recommendation), fewer digestible carbs and a lower glycemic index than traditional pasta. Its delectable taste and nutritional benefits make it a healthful option for people with diabetes and a flavorful, nourishing pasta for the entire family.

Q. What makes Dreamfields Pasta unique?
A. Like other premium pastas, Dreamfields Pasta is made primarily with durum wheat semolina, which is why it tastes great. The pasta is unique because:

* Dreamfields’ patent-pending recipe and manufacturing process protects all but 5 grams of the carbohydrates per serving from being digested and therefore lessens post-meal blood glucose rise as compared to traditional 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 is the only pasta clinically shown to have a lower glycemic index than traditional pasta (65% lower).
* Dreamfields has all of the taste and texture of traditional pastas.

With all the health benefits present in Dreamfields pasta, the first thing that came to my mind was how does it actually taste? I have had high fiber foods, some of which are tasty then others you may as well eat the cardboard box. I was pleasantly surprised with the taste and texture of Dreamfields pasta. I sampled the Rotini. It was so good I could not taste any difference than my regular pasta. It cooked in the same amount of time, it held the sauce nicely and it was pretty filling. It has twice the fiber of regular pasta so that explains the fullness. Dreamfields low glycemic index easily fits into many weight management plans. I will continue to buy Dreamfields pastas because it is so delicious!

You can purchase Dreamfields at many retail locations nationwide. It is carried in many of the major grocery stores in my area. Check your local grocers. You can also order directly online.
