Gluten free products seem to get better everyday and this new pasta is no exception. It has quickly earned a spot near the top of our Favorite Pasta list!
Why do we love it?
It taste just like pasta! Simple but very important to us on the GF diet!
It is not as starchy as some other GF pastas - sometimes when I am cooking GF pasta, the water is so starchy I think I could almost turn it into a gravy. Not this pasta - cooked up clean and beautiful.
Lastly, the company checks to make sure the pasta meets the standards of less than 20 ppm.
|We follow the proposed rule in the Federal Register (72 FR 7295) that tests for gluten at the 20ppm level. While we do not have dedicated equipment for our Gluten Free pasta, we have a very detailed protocol in place to prevent cross contamination to ensure safety for consumption. Before we produce any Gluten Free pasta, a thorough cleaning of all equipment and surfaces occurs. In addition, several swab tests are done of primary surfaces to ensure the cleaning was done properly and safe to produce the Gluten Free pasta. The gluten level of the product is also verified to ensure that it does not exceed 20 ppm|
Serve this with a easy to make Homemade Spaghetti Sauce -
