WHAT IS HIGH PROTEIN PASTA?
High protein pasta is pasta made from ingredients that contain a high amount of protein per serving, when compared to regular wheat-based pasta. These ingredients - beans, chickpeas, lentils and yellow peas - tend to naturally maintain their nutritional benefits during the manufacturing process, making them perfect for people with gluten sensitivities and fitness-minded eaters.
Protein is a keystone to living a balanced life, and can highly benefit fitness goals. Proteins form our muscles but also have additional functions within the body, such as helping our body grow, repair, or replace tissue.
Yellow Peas Are High In Protein
The pea protein is a beneficial food source due to its low allergenicity, and high nutritional value, making it the perfect single ingredient for ZENB’s high protein pasta.
17g Protein per Pasta Serving
ZENB pasta has 17g of protein per serving, that's four times the amount compared to standard wheat pasta. ZENB yellow pea pasta has ⅓ of your necessary daily protein intake and is the equivalent to eating three medium-size eggs.
IT'S ALSO Higher In Fibre
ZENB pasta has five times the amount of fibre compared to standard wheat pasta and each serving is the equivalent to eating two bananas or avocados!
A perfect partner to your favourite sauces
ZENB’s yellow pea gluten free pasta’s light delicate texture makes the perfect partner for stirring in your favourite sauce on pasta night. The al dente texture is the perfect base for absorbing the full flavour of the sauce every time.
