PAPADINI® is a nutritionally rich Lentil/Bean Pasta that offers the family a healthy salad and entrée option.

It is perfect for those following a gluten-free, wheat-free diet.
If you need more protein, it offers 13 g of protein per 2 oz. portion, more than a similar serving of steak without the artery-choking cholesterol.
Ideal for vegetarians and vegans.

If you are watching your weight and aiming at a healthy heart, you are generally advised a beans/lentils rich diet as the soluble fiber in lentils and beans lowers serum cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar. But beans and lentils often need to be soaked overnight and then cooked into a tasty dish. On the other hand, PAPADINI® pasta takes all the work out of this soaking-and-cooking exercise, offering you an easy, quick-to-prepare gourmet meal instead. Also remember, one serving of PAPADINI® contains 6 g soluble fiber.

PAPADINI® ’s insoluble fiber could help maintain regularity and may prevent colon cancer. The large amounts of fiber also helps you feel more full and satisfied and stay that way longer, thus controlling over-eating at the dining table and snacking between meals. Whats more,the fibre in beans is soluble which lowers the bad LDL Cholestrol.
PAPADINI® is a nutritional powerhouse. A 2 oz. serving (dry weight) is packed with 200 calories, 13 g protein, 6 g fiber and only 0.5 g fat. It is an excellent source of iron ( an essential mineral) and complex carbohydrates, a good source of folic acid (B vitamins), calcium, phosphorous and potassium.
PAPADINI® is almost fat-free (no saturated fats at all) and cholesterol-free.
In addition to being low in fat and high in fibre (upto 30% of the dry weight of beans and other legumes), lentils offer low cost protein, an ideal substitute for costly meat protein.
