Pasta Nutrition

Pasta Nutrition

Nutrition experts routinely recommend a balance of both whole and enriched grains to ensure a nutritionally complete diet that provides the essential vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients. (Phytonutrients are the health-protective substances in plant foods – fruits, vegetables and grains – that promote health and help reduce risk of chronic disease.)

Pasta is a perfect foundation for healthy, nutritious and satisfying meals: Pasta is generally eaten with nutrient-dense food partners, such as fiber-filled vegetables and beans, heart healthy fish and monounsaturated oils, antioxidant-rich tomato sauce and protein-packed cheese, poultry and lean meats.
