If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to eat healthier, we have some great news for you. Eating homemade bettolino pasta is much better for you than store bought pasta. A friend of ours who is monitoring his blood sugar after every meal, noticed that after eating store bought pasta, his blood sugar sky rocketed. But when he ate Bettolino’s homemade pasta, his blood sugar was normal. We did a little investigating to find out why that was. What we came up with didn’t surprise us too much. Since we import our flour directly from Italy it isn’t enriched or processed the same way we do in the US. If you look on the back of a pasta box and read the ingredients you will see things like Niacin, Ferrous sulfate, or thiamine monotrate among other things we can’t pronounce. if you ask us what’s in our pasta we keep it pretty simple: eggs, 00 flour, semolina, salt, pepper and extra virgin olive oil. So go ahead and indulge with us this New Year!
