Kelowna Celiac Welcomes NuPasta

Kelowna Celiac is pleased to announce a new sponsor: NuPasta

NuPasta is a gluten-free, low calorie, and high fiber pasta available as spaghetti, fettuccine, and angel hair in organic and non-organic packages.

nuPasta Organic SpaghettiHow does it differ from regular pasta?  According to NuPasta, 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 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.

What is Konjac? According to NuPasta the konjac plant (Amorphophallus konjac) grows on slopes 2000 to 4000 feet above sea level, where it enjoys the habitat’s clean air and water. Today, konjac plants are grown in Japan, Korea, and China. The edible part of the konjac plant is the root which resembles an oval shaped taro or yam potato.
