VitaSpelt Whole Grain Wide Spelt NoodlesLast night, my plans for dinner included a recipe for Lemon chive noodles - but I was out of noodles. At the grocery, I decided to try to get something a bit healthier than my usual, and spotted Vita Spelt Whole Grain Wide Spelt Noodles. Labeled as cholesterol free made with 100% whole grains, they certainly seemed to fit the bill of a substitute, so I bought them.

The package was cleverly designed, with it being sealed at the top but also having a twist tie so that after it's opened it can be re-closed to keep the pasta fresher longer. The noodles were a pale brown color in the bag, but got much darker and grainier looking when cooked. I liked the look of them - they reminded me that I was eating a healthy food, however, they certainly didn't taste like a health food. With a lot of whole grain pasta, you can tell that it's made from wheat flour instead of white, but this tasted surprisingly like regular pasta. When dressed up with enough sauce to hide the color, I don't think anyone will know the difference.

Each 2-ounce serving of VitaSpelt Whole Grain Wide Spelt Noodles provides 190 calories, 1 gram off total fat (2% of the daily value), but no saturated fat, trans fat, or cholesterol, 15 mg sodium (1% of the DV) and 39 grams of carbohydrates which includes 4 grams of dietary fiber (16% of RDA) and only 1 gram of which is sugar. Each serving also contains 9 grams of protein and 10% of the RDA for iron. The ingredient list contains organic Whole Spelt (wheat) flour, water, egg whites.

I paid $3.19 for a 10 oz bag, which is a little more expensive than a bag of egg noodles, but not by much. Next time I go to Whole Foods, I'm stocking up on these.
