Wholemeal pasta

4 posts in this topic

Good/bad, for believers in the 'refined carb' issue?

I've cut out white bread, for example - and switched to wholemeal.

Could I do the same with pasta?

I haven't eaten white pasta in ages, because of some stuff I've read on here, but I miss pasta - would eating brown/wholemeal pasta be OK, and unlikely to break me out? Or at least, be better than 'regular' pasta?

I switched over to whole wheat pasta and it tastes great! Even my kids love it. :smile:

Wholemeal pasta is better, but not by much. If you eat a small amount of it with some meat, it will not have a negative impact on your blood sugar levels. However, if you eat a big bowl of it, this will lead to a spike in blood sugar levels.

All I know is that whole wheat bread still affects me the same way as white bread, just slightly slower.
