If you wish to add more fibre to your diet but are strongly attached to the look and taste of traditional white pasta, give CATELLI SMART® a try. CATELLI SMART® is a great tasting white pasta and a very high source of fibre containing 8 grams of fibre per 85 gram serving. That’s 32% of your daily value of fibre!
With CATELLI® HEALTHY HARVEST® pasta, you can enjoy whole wheat, multigrain and flax omega-3 pasta that combines great taste, goodness, and 100% whole grains. Even though you probably didn’t grow up with whole grain pasta, it’s never too late to give it a try and enjoy its benefits. Once cooked, CATELLI® HEALTHY HARVEST® pasta turns lighter in colour and slips into all your favourite pasta dishes virtually unnoticed. It is simply a perfect mix of great taste and added nutritional value.
Eating well with Canada’s Food Guide recommends that you consume 6 – 8 servings of grain products each day, with at least half being whole grains.
