The nutritionist noted that people should give preference to gluten-free pasta – these include franchise, shirataki, pea pasta, etc.
90% of all pasta contains gluten, the consumption of which in large quantities can lead to the leaky gut syndrome, autoimmune diseases, and skin problems. This was stated by a well-known nutritionist Anastasia Gavrikova. According to her, a variety of nutrients is the main rule when formulating a diet.
“If you eat pasta every day, you won’t get the nutrients that are contained, for example, in cereals: buckwheat, brown rice, quinoa. Therefore, if you like pasta, analyze whether you have any gastrointestinal problems or autoimmune diseases, how your skin looks, and whether you are overweight. If you are healthy, you can eat regular wheat pasta. However, know the measure,” says Gavrilova.
The nutritionist noted that you can give preference to gluten-free pasta – these include franchise, shirataki, pea pasta, chickpea pasta, and corn pasta.
“Pay attention to the ‘no GMO’ label on the package,” she summarized.
