Want a healthy option beyond white rice and regular wheat pasta? Then try Naturel’s Organic Gluten Free 100% Brown Rice Fusilli! As part of the brand’s Organic Gluten Free Pasta range, it is higher in wholegrains – just one serving of this makes up 250 per cent of your daily wholegrain requirement.
Wholegrains help to prevent the body’s absorption of “bad” cholesterol, lower blood pressure and regulate blood sugar level, which can lead to a lowered risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Another plus: Brown rice contains dietary fibre so you can go about the day feeling fuller for longer without snacking – a great choice if you’re watching your weight.
Naturel products are available at major supermarkets.
