Barilla has taken the time and care to develop a whole grain pasta that not only provides the benefits of whole grains but also delivers the great taste and quality people have come to expect from Barilla - Italy's #1 Brand of Pasta.
Made with 51 per cent whole wheat, Barilla Whole Grain is all natural and a very high source of fibre. It offers 28 g of whole grains and 6 g of fibre per serving, which is two times the fibre of traditional pasta. It is the ideal pasta for anyone seeking to increase their intake of fibre and whole grains without sacrificing taste.
The Benefits of Whole Grains and Fibre:
Diets rich in whole grain foods and other plant foods, and diets low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol, may help reduce the risk of heart disease and certain cancers.
Whole grains often provide a good source of dietary fibre, which comes from the bran layer. Like sugar and starch, fiber is a carbohydrate, but with a twist: the body does not digest and absorb it, so fibre contributes fewer calories. That is one reason people lose more weight on high fibre diets: meals are more filling with fewer calories.
