Looking at the vibrant hues of Tolerant Foods' healthy pastas is a hint at what makes it so different. The vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO and certified organic penne, rotini and miniature fettuccine noodles are prepared with red lentils and black beans.
By providing a whopping 22 grams of protein per a three-ounce serving, these healthy pastas appeal to more than just those with a gluten intolerance. Since traditional wheat-based pasta dishes and rice are known to cause blood sugar spikes, this meal option is especially ideal for those with diabetes. Additionally, vegans love the variety that these noodles provide to the usual tofu, tempeh and rice.
While vegan-targeted food options used to be quite limited, many conscious consumers are beginning to gravitate towards them because they associate them with good health, ethics and environmentalism.
