VeggyMalta checks out Good Earth’s new range of whole wheat pasta.
Good Earth has four different types of pasta in this range; fusilli, penne, spaghetti and farfalle. Each packet is 500 g. Let’s start with the main aspect of this range, the fact that it is 100% whole wheat. This basically means that all the product is whole wheat pasta and not a percentage of it.
Another key feature about Good Earth’s range is that it is organic. It carries the EU organic label (a leaf with stars on a green background). Reading the label you will see that the product is made in Italy since it states IT BIO plus the product is from EU agriculture (which means that the raw ingredients that make this product were grown with the EU and not imported from outside the union).
There are a number of reasons why someone might wish to consume whole wheat pasta. As a starter it is rich in fibre and low in fats. But furthermore it is a good source of protein. In fact Good Earth’s 100% Whole Wheat pasta provides 12 g of gluten protein per 100 g. Quite a good punch!
