I love Good Earth. I tell you, if I was rich I would buy everything in that store just to try it! I'm so intrigued! While shopping at Good Earth last week I saw "Jerusalem Artichoke Flour Pasta" I'd never heard of it before at all! Since most things in that store seem pretty healthy, I thought maybe this was something I should look into. Who doesn't love pasta?! So I went home and did some reading. I love pasta, I eat it with whole wheat noodles, but still, sometimes feel a little bit guilty. I probably shouldn't, but I guess I just have this "paste is evil" thing drilled into my head.
What I learned in my research? This is a gluten free pasta. Soon, very soon, I'm going to read up on this gluten-free thing. I know there is an allergy purpose, but do people avoid gluten for purely health reasons? That will be another blog. This jerusalem artichoke flour also helps people who have candida . I had no clue what this was, apparently it's yeast over growth and imbalances in your blood sugar make you crave sweets, gassy, bloated, rashes, headaches, and more. Jerusalem artichoke flour great for diabetes, since it helps stabilize blood sugar.
Looks like DeBoles is the trusted brand to buy from. They offer it in all sorts of noodles, so you could make a Jerusalem Artichoke lasagna or mac n cheese with the elbow noodles. Besides the things I mentioned, I like the rundown they give on the their site as well."A rich source of protein and dietary fiber as compared to traditional pasta, Jerusalem artichoke flour also naturally contains inulin, a prebiotic that stimulates the growth of beneficial bacterial in the digestive tract that in turn aids digestion and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol. Our signature recipe has a subtle nutty flavor and light smooth texture that is never sticky."
I'm going to have to go back to Good Earth after this reading and buy me some and eat my pasta guilt free!
