Why Durum Wheat Pasta?
The protein and gluten content of durum wheat is higher and hence is a better choice than regular pasta. Durum wheat is a hard type of wheat. When ground into flour, durum wheat is known as semolina and used all over the world in pasta and porridge. This flour is darker and more golden in color than all-purpose flour. It also has a mild, earthy aroma. Semolina is high in protein and fiber — both of which are slow in digestion and increases the feeling of fullness between meals and hence may promote weight loss. Additionally, semolina is a good source of iron and magnesium. These minerals support red blood cell production, heart health, and blood sugar control.
