New gluten-free pastas are available in our grocery department.
Banza Chickpea Pastas
In 2013 Brian Rudolph began experimenting in his small apartment to create pasta made primarily from chickpeas. His obsession turned into the start of the Banza brand.
Since then Banza has harnessed the power of chickpeas to create pastas that are higher in fiber and protein than traditional noodles, and without all the carbs. We now carry the following chickpea pastas:
- White Cheddar Mac and Cheese
- Classic Cheddar Mac and Cheese
- Shells and Cheese
- Deluxe Rich and Creamy Cheddar Elbows
Banza Chickpea Pastas are also certified non-GMO, gluten-free and kid friendly!
While exploring in China, Joe Spronz recognized the need for healthier pasta alternatives. The idea came to him while enjoying soybean noodles regularly on his trip. He returned to the states and started the Explore Cuisine brand. We now carry the following Explore
- Organic Black Bean Spaghetti
- Organic Edamame and Mung Bean Fettucine
- Red Lentil Penne
Explore Cuisine products are certified vegan, organic, gluten-free and kosher. Their bean pastas contain high fiber content, 20-25 grams of protein per serving and are low in carbs and sodium.
Explore Cuisine also donates 2% of their proceeds to support the Food to Thrive Foundation. This foundation helps provide education and advancement in farming programs to each member of the Explore Cuisine Team.
You can find both of these new products in our pasta aisle.
