Nutraceutical and health aspects of durum wheat semolina products; dry pasta and long-life egg pasta.
Durum wheat semolina differs from other flours because it has a yellowish color and is much more grainy, especially compared to white flour.
Products made exclusively of durum wheat semolina (dry pasta) are rich in mineral salts, vitamins and fibers and have a very low glycemic index, because inside there are complex carbohydrates. In this type of flour there are carotenoids such as beta-carotene and lutein, which are excellent optimal antioxidants to prevent and combat cellular aging.
Furthermore, the complex carbohydrates contained in this type of product ensure a gradual release of energy over time. Dry pasta is rich in gluten and highly protein, it contains gluten and also various groups of vitamins.
The ideal pasta consumption consists of about 80 grams of product, the ideal seasoning in our opinion is with a drizzle of raw extra virgin olive oil; you will be able to fully appreciate the excellent organoleptic qualities of our PASTABIO.
Studies have shown that pasta has the lowest glycemic index among carbohydrates. All this would also promote heart protection, as the low glycemic index does not raise the levels of reactive protein C, which has been shown to be linked to cardiovascular risk.
It contains very little sodium and many fibers, the latter fundamental in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and tumors, especially in the digestive system.
