A full plate (7.5oz) of regular cooked pasta contains about 300 calories and 2g of dietary fiber, the same amount of nuPasta contains 35 calories and 6g of dietary fiber. nuPasta is also gluten free.
Regular pasta is made with wheat, a starch which has calories. nuPasta is made with the root of the konjac plant which is rich in dietary fiber and has no starch. The absence of starch is the reason why nuPasta is so low in calories.
Our pasta also comes precooked, which makes preparation easy. You just need to rinse, drain and heat up nuPasta in a pan with your sauce and you’re finished. There is no need to boil our pasta at all!
Ingredient: Water, konjac root, soybean (non-GMO), calcium hydroxide.
Foods are often considered healthy for the nutrients, vitamin or mineral content. In the case of nuPasta, we emphasize the reduction of certain macro nutrients such as fats and carbohydrates. By replacing the starches in regular pasta with the fiber of the konjac plant, we substantially reduce the intake of calories in your meal without changing the portion size. With 6g of dietary fiber, nuPasta is able to satisfy your hunger without excess carbohydrates and fats.
Weight management is a struggle for many Canadians as our meals have been filled with sugars, carbohydrates and fats, all of which increase our caloric intake. To assist in this quest for better health, we have developed a fiber-based pasta that is low calorie: nuPasta. Diets that are fulfilling and taste good are sustainable, and sustainability means results.
