Best Gluten Free Pasta Ever…No, Seriously

Good morning everyone. I hope you are doing well this Wednesday morning. I wanted to share a review of one of my favorite GF products. This is a staple in my house and I always try to make sure I have some extra in case I would be too tired to cook anything else besides boiling pasta and we all know we have those days!
Being on a gluten free diet for about 3 years, I have tried my share of gluten free pastas. Some were better than others, but nothing could really top this one. The pasta that I highly recommend is Quinoa Pasta (Ancient Harvest). This company makes more products than GF pasta and, of course, quinoa is one of them! Check out their website, where you can find different kinds of GF Pasta:
 I find that I usually buy GF Linguine and Spaghetti the most. This pasta resembles regular wheat pasta. It doesn’t get mushy and slimy like some other GF pastas, especially rice ones. It doesn’t take very long to make. In the future, I will post some recipes with this pasta, so you can see how delish and versatile this pasta is!! You can find it at Whole Foods and other natural grocery stores.

Check out the website and read about the products. However, here are several Quinoa FAQs from the website for you to read and hopefully, answer some questions:

Is the fiber in quinoa soluble or in-soluble?
Quinoa has both soluble Dietary Fiber and In-soluble Dietary Fiber, the percentage is approximately 36% soluble fiber and 64% in-soluble fiber.

Is quinoa gluten free? As a grain, quinoa is gluten free. Our Ancient Harvest Quinoa is grown exclusively in the high Andean Altiplano regions of Bolivia. Our quinoa is grown at 12,000+ foot elevations in very arid conditions which will not support traditional gluten bearing grain production, therefore insuring us no possibility of potential field contamination with such grains. Our Traditional, Inca Red and Black whole grain quinoa is then cleaned, processed and packed in our quinoa-only organic and gluten free facilities.

Are your products produced in gluten free facilities?
Our Ancient Harvest Quinoa, Quinoa Flour, Gluten Free Pasta Corn/Quinoa Product Line and Food Merchant Polenta are all processed in specialized gluten free facilities in the United States. This assures us of the highest quality integrity and frequent shorter production runs for fresher product delivered to our customers. Our Quinoa Flakes are now also processed in a gluten free facility.

Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!
