Whole wheat pasta is a fiber rich food with all the benefits of whole grains such as helping to reduce inflammation, cholesterol and blood pressure. It also helps regulate blood sugar, facilitate weight loss and supports your microbiome.
And dieters worry no more - whole wheat pasta is lower on the glycemic index than bread because its solid nature forces enzymes to work harder thus slowing down digestion.:)
