Since 1981, Al Dente's reputation has been based on its famous "tender but firm" texture that tastes just like homemade. Their Carba-Nada line includes Roasted Garlic Fettuccine, Lemon Pepper Fettuccine, and Egg Fettuccine. By substituting wheat gluten, fiber, and high-protein soy flour for some of the semolina of normal pasta, Al Dente has succeeded in bringing the total carbohydrate countdown to 18 net grams per serving.
Al Dente has succeeded in making a great tasting, low-carb pasta when others have failed. Because Al Dente is one of the few pasta companies in the country to sheet rather than extrude their dough, they are able to achieve a texture that is more similar to traditional fresh egg pasta. This method, along with the great, all-natural flavors, give a real taste treat to the millions of people who do not want to give up pasta even though they are on low-carb diets.
Al Dente Pasta Company has found a wonderful balance - a great tasting pasta with a lower carb count (18 g net carbs per serving) vs. regular pasta (45 g or more per serving). Now we know 18 g Net Carbs is not right for everyone but when you are close to your goal or want to have that occasional pasta treat, Carba-Nada will satisfy you. Ingredients
: Enriched Semolina Flour (Durum Semolina Wheat, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Wheat Gluten, Digestive Resistant Cornstarch, Defatted Soy Flour, Pasteurized Whole Eggs.
