Chicago-based Barilla, the U.S. division of Italy’s Barilla Group, introduces Barilla Whole Grain pasta. Made with 51 percent whole wheat, Barilla Whole Grain is all natural and an excellent natural source of fiber, delivering three times the fiber of traditional pasta.
“At Barilla, we took the extra time to develop a whole grain product that delivers not only the benefits of whole grain, but that is delicious and easy to make," says Executive Chef Lorenzo Boni. "Barilla Whole Grain always cooks up perfectly 'al dente' and is great in any pasta recipe."
Barilla Whole Grain pasta is available in four shapes: Rotini, Penne, Spaghetti and Thin Spaghetti.
"With Barilla Whole Grain, my clients can easily get the fiber they need and, most importantly, can enjoy what they are eating," says celebrity fitness coach Bob Greene. "Most people know that whole grains are good for their health, but the idea of eating bland, tasteless food is too unappealing. Barilla Whole Grain is part of my 'Best Life Diet' because it's a great way to get more fiber without giving up taste."
Suggested retail price for a 13.25-ounce package is $1.39, the same price as traditional Barilla pasta.
