House Foods Offers Low-Calorie Pasta Alternative
House Foods, a premium tofu purveyor since 1983, introduces Smart Noodle, a noodle substitute with only 20 calories, 6g of fiber and 400mg of omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid per serving. Made from oats and rice bran, the pasta-type product comes in fettuccine and spaghetti shapes. Similar to House Foods’ Tofu Shirataki Noodles, Smart Noodle is pre-cooked and packaged in water. Preparation only consists of draining, rinsing and drying the noodles to remove excess water. Once dry, the noodles are ready to make their way into a variety of recipes, from casseroles to soups to stir fry. This guilt-free noodle alternative is gluten-free, vegan, Non-GMO Project verified and kosher. But it's perishable and must be refrigerated.
“We created this product to extend our current noodle portfolio of traditional shirataki and tofu shirataki noodles,” says Yoko DiFrancia, manger, public relations and marketing. “Smart Noodle is especially exciting for those consumers who want the added benefits of extra fiber and omega-3 while cooking at home.”
