If you’re wondering whether gluten-free pasta is just a health fad, you’re not alone. According to Dr. Ford, author of The Gluten Syndrome and a practicing pediatrician in New Zealand, nearly half of the American population suffers from gluten sensitivity without knowing it. Gluten is one of the most common proteins found in American food, as it is in wheat, rye, and barley.
Gluten forms when bakers mix water with flour, forming a glue-like substance responsible for making bread rise. Gluten is also responsible for giving your pastries, fresh pasta, and other baked goods a satisfying and chewy texture, thanks to gliadin and glutenin. Gliadin has many questionable biological effects when passing through the digestive tract, such as breaking down into exorphins that induce inattention in ADHD patients and mania in people with bipolar disorder.
America is world-famous for its fast-food culture and often portrays healthy, all-natural, gluten-free foods as an option reserved for those on a "diet" looking to lose weight. However, millennials are starting to buck the unhealthy trends of the past few decades by cutting down on the sugar, fat, and gluten in their favorite foods.
At Garden of Esther, we are strong advocates of healthy, high-quality, and sustainable diets that revolve around local ingredients. We offer fresh pasta that is handmade using natural, nutrient-rich ingredients, with options that are vegan-friendly and 100% safe for a gluten-free diet. Discover the healthiest and tastiest fresh pasta the Treasure Coast and Southeast Florida has to offer by visiting our gourmet Italian market today.
What is High-Protein Pasta?
If you want to increase your protein intake with a dose of healthy carbs, then our high-protein pasta could be your new go-to food.
We use whole grain garbanzo bean flour, otherwise known as chickpea flour, for our gluten-free pasta. Chickpea pasta has double the fiber and protein content of regular wheat pasta while only packing 40% of the calories. It has the same satisfying taste and texture with none of the drawbacks that make pasta unpalatable for people on a gluten-free diet.
The Benefits of Eating Gluten-Free Pasta
At Garden of Esther, we offer a range of high-fiber, gluten-free pasta that can play a significant part in a healthy diet. Going gluten-free offers numerous health benefits that scientists are still studying today. So far, here are the advantages they’ve uncovered:
- Gluten-free foods such as gluten-free pasta eliminate diarrhea, bloating, constipation, fatigue, gas, and other digestive problems, even for people without celiac disease.
- Physicians recommend gluten-free foods to manage inflammation in people with celiac disease.
- Gluten-free diets eliminate numerous junk foods like pastries, snacks, and cakes from your diet.
- Most people combine gluten-free pasta with toppings like veggies, lean meats, and fruits, making for a healthier meal.
What Ingredients Make Healthy Pasta?
While organic brown rice pasta is one of the most common types of gluten-free pasta, it’s far from being the best. At Garden of Esther, we know that ingredients matter when it comes to making healthy pasta. Our fresh pasta is all-natural and doesn’t contain artificial preservatives, flavorings, or even salt.
We make our gluten-free pasta with garbanzo bean flour that is high in protein, high in fiber, and low in fat. You can use it with all your favorite sauces, and no one will even notice it doesn’t have gluten.
Is Gluten-Free Pasta Healthy?
Fresh gluten-free pasta is an excellent option for people who are watching their caloric intake, as it is lower in calories than dried pasta. Boiling pasta in water decreases its calorie content, but it also eliminates some of the fiber in the noodles. We make up for that fiber loss by offering protein-rich chickpea pasta made from gluten-free, natural ingredients.
