Not So Naturael

"Bionaturae Organic Gluten Free Fusilli is supposed to
"closely match the flavor and nutritional content of wheat
pasta." White pasta, that is. Bionaturae uses organic rice flour,
rice starch, and soy flour, but none of it is whole grain. Save
your spaghetti sauce for something like Lundberg Organic Brown
Rice Gluten-Free Pasta. It has less protein and fiber than whole
wheat pasta, but at least it hasn't been denuded.
As for Ancient Harvest Quinoa Supergrain Pasta, it has more corn
flour than quinoa."
