We all know that whole grains are much better for us than enriched ones. We tried to make the switch to whole grain flour, but found it to be just SO dense. But we’ve had great success combining it with the enriched stuff….we are very used to the taste, and find it to be quite yummy, actually!
We’ve also tried out several different brands of whole grain pasta. Let me be honest, I haven’t had complete and total success in this department. In fact, most everything I have tried has been not so good, and I’ve rarely bought those items again.
Ronco has just released their 100% Whole Grain Pasta line, and they worked really hard to maintain a taste that consumers would love all while giving us all the benefits of those whole grains. It’s really cool to read the label. Wanna hear the ingredient list? Here goes: durum whole wheat flour. That’s it!!!
I just tried their spaghetti noodles the other day, and while I can’t say that they taste like enriched noodles, I will say that they are truly the best tasting 100% whole grain noodles I have ever tried. I would definitely buy them again because I think that their flavor is close enough to what we normally eat that we could get used to it, just as we have with our flour. I’m excited about this, because I always feel bad about serving enriched pastas to my family.
