We belong to a local food co-op that offers organic and other healthy food options; we do our best within our budget to maximize our options. One of the products they carry is Bionaturae pasta. They had a coupon available, so we thought we’d give their organic whole wheat spaghetti a try. I have to admit that my expectations weren’t too high… I’ve tried some other whole wheat pastas from other grocery stores before, and they’ve tasted more ‘wheat-y’.
(That is a similar issue I have had when attempting to use whole wheat flour. I used it for cookies before, and the wheat taste was very easily detectable…)
We were pleased to discover that Bionaturae had a taste like ‘regular’ non-whole-wheat pasta. It took a little longer to cook than regular pasta, but it held up well in the cooking process and was pleasantly toothsome texture-wise. It also paired well with sauce.
It is not available everywhere, but there is a store search feature available on their website and it is also listed on Amazon.com– (no specific recommendation implied).
Overall, this product holds true to its motto on the package: “Exceptional tasting whole wheat pasta! Enjoy the health benefits of whole wheat pasta without sacrificing great flavor.”
I agree, this is my family ‘s favorite wheat pasta. I don’t use wheat pasta all the time but this is the to go brand in case I need it. Happy New Year!
It’s good to know others had a similar thought; we hadn’t had much luck before. Happy New Year also!
