Amaranth Teff and Quinoa flour’s nutritional properties

It is suitable for anybody practicing sports and for anybody who is looking for a balanced supply of proteins and complex carbohydrates with a low glycaemic index. All this in a good dish of pasta. Proteins are mainly contained in the amaranth flour, an excellent substitute for proteins of animal origin, while the complex carbohydrates are found in the teff flour. The essential amino acids, our allies in the fight against cholesterol, are mainly found in quinoa flour. Amaranth is also rich in calcium, phosphorus and iron. Thanks to teff your body will get high amounts of fibres, calcium, potassium, thiamine, niacin and vitamin B6. Quinoa is a source of lysine, methionine, fibres and minerals such as phosphorus, magnesium, iron and zinc. The amaranth, teff and quinoa flour combination generates, therefore, a pasta that is rich in fibres, very digestible, and with a generous minerals supply.
To enjoy our teff, amaranth and quinoa flour pasta you can choose any type of sauce: thanks to the bronze drawing PASTA NATURA perfectly retains the sauce. For a super concentrated protein and energy dish, you can accompany it with legumes, especially beans and chickpeas, or with tofu. You can create a delicious version of the dish with a traditional sauce made with black olives and peppers. If you want to use a Vegan OK line pasta opt instead for a vegetable-based sauce or add to the casarecce broccoli rabe salted in a pan. In this case you will get a dish with a beautiful look, with a strong taste and a balanced nutritional value.
