Pasta is typically made from an unleavened dough of wheat flour mixed with water or eggs and formed into sheets or other shapes. Pasta is known to be originated in Italy, where it is also a staple food. It is then cooked by boiling or baking. Sometimes, rice flour or legumes such as beans or lentils are used in place of wheat flour to yield a different taste and texture, or as a gluten-free alternative. Pastas are divided into two broad categories: dried and fresh. Most dried pasta is produced commercially via an extrusion process whereas fresh pasta is traditionally produced by hand, sometimes with the aid of simple machines. Both dried and fresh pasta come in a number of shapes and varieties.
Check the packaging very carefully before buying to ensure that there no holes or open pores. Read the label in detail to be safe from allergens.
Pasta is high in carbs. High-carb diets can raise blood sugar levels and may be associated with an increased risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome and obesity. (1)
