Tolerant Foods Organic Pastas

by Anne Paddock

Looking for a great source of organic and gluten-free plant-based protein? Consider pasta made by Tolerant Foods, a company crazy about the health benefits and taste of legumes (beans, lentils, peas, and garbanzos). With three different types of pasta – penne, rotini, and mini fettucine – made from either organic black beans or organic red lentils, there is a noodle for everyone.

Tolerant Foods organic pastas are loaded with protein, fiber, iron, vitamins and minerals, particularly calcium, zinc, folate, thiamine, Riboflavin, and Vitamin B6 – all of which come from the one ingredient in each box – non-GMO organic black beans or red lentils. Nothing else. That’s it.Tolerant_Foods_Red Lentil_Penne

Cooking time is 8-10 minutes in boiling water. Then add sauce and vegetables for a tasty and nutritious meal.Tolerant_Foods_Organic_Pasta

Tolerant Food pastas come in 12 ounce boxes and sell for about $7-8 per box, expensive compared to other pastas but not compared to other sources with the same nutritional benefits. Each 12 ounce box contains 84 grams of protein or 21 grams of protein for each 3 ounce serving – the same amount of protein as 3 ounces of meat or chicken – but without the fat and cholesterol.Black_Bean_Rotini
