Pereg Offering Gluten-Free Pasta with 100 Percent Quinoa Flour
Pereg Natural Foods, a family-owned company that specializes in ancient grains and spices, is proud to carry the only quinoa pasta on the market made of 100 percent quinoa flour. While some pastas labeled as quinoa are made mostly from corn, rice or soy; Pereg Natural Foods’ quinoa pasta is made purely of whole grain quinoa flour, pasteurized egg whites, and starch.
Offering a healthy and tasty alternative to traditional durum wheat pasta, Pereg’s quinoa pasta contains all nine essential amino acids, is high in fiber (5mg per serving), a great source of protein (8g per serving), and has only 210 calories and 40g total carbs per serving. Available in spaghetti, curvo—rigate and fusilli, each variety is certified gluten free, OU Kosher certified, and completely free of preservatives, MSG and GMO’s.
Pereg does in-house testing on every gluten-free production and has a food safety program set up to prevent allergen contamination through proper cleaning of machinery. The Gluten Free Labs certification reflected in the seal shown on their website, is a third party service that tests the company’s facility.
The pasta is easy to prepare, taking only six minutes to cook once the water boils, and has a unique talent of taking on the flavor of the dish being created. Pereg’s quinoa pasta is available for purchase at select retailers across the country and online at www.pereg-gourmet.com.
