Barilla's new and improved Protein+ pasta line is made entirely with plant-based ingredients, including a base of semolina durum wheat that's combined with protein from lentils, chickpeas and peas. As well as being able to experience a new formula for varieties like Spaghetti, Angel Hair, Thin Spaghetti, Farfalle, Penne, Elbow and Rotini pasta, consumers will also find that the product has a shorter cooking time. Even so, the protein-rich pastas are said to maintain the taste and "al dente" texture of traditional semolina pasta products.
This new line of pasta packed with protein caters to consumers who are looking for 100% plant-based options, as the former recipe contained egg whites.
