POWERFULLY DIFFERENT PASTA
Chickpeas aka queen beans
Chickpeas, lentils and beans make up the legume family - the everyday heroes of the plant kingdom you’ve always known, but maybe overlooked. They’re full of goodness, including protein, fibre and iron, as well as magnesium, zinc and B vitamins meaning they punch well above their superfood weight. That's why we’ve hand-picked them as our ingredients of choice, to reinvent your favourite staples and bring plant power to you!
The fibre in chickpeas is a known prebiotic. This means it plays an important role in feeding the probiotics or good bacteria in your gut, enabling them to function properly - helping digestion and nutrient absorption as well as inhibiting the growth of bad bacteria. A healthy dose of fibre in your diet also helps control cravings, blood pressure and might even brighten our moods. High fibre, high five for your gut!
Power in plant protein
But where do you get your protein? We’ve cut out the ‘middle cow’ and gone straight to the source. Protein-rich plants like legumes, nuts & grains contain all the amino acid protein building blocks our bodies need for energy and recovery. Protein plays an important role in nearly every function of the body including our vital organs, muscles, tissues and even our hormones. One serve of Wilderbean pasta contains 30g of protein, which is roughly 60% of your daily recommended protein needs.. so you know what to do.
All natural - nothing but real beans
Nature created chickpeas and mung beans full of plant protein, fibre and nutrients, so when we hand selected these powerful ingredients for Wilderbean pasta, we didn’t need to add a thing. Know your pasta is free from cheap fillers such as potato starch, rice, xantham gum or any other binders. Not only that, it's artificial additive and preservative free, always.
What goes in: just beans, naturally.
Know that snoozy feeling when you crash after a serve of white bread or regular pasta? That’s your body struggling to process the high GI carbohydrates which cause your blood sugar to spike and plummet. Wilderbean pasta is naturally low GI, releasing energy slowly to give you the buzz and hum of plant based energy, without the insulin crash and burn.
Macro love for those micronutrients
Tiny but essential, micronutrients are the vitamins and minerals your body needs to keep you functioning at your prime. They are crucial to maintaining your energy levels, metabolism, cellular function as well as your physical and mental wellbeing. Thanks to chickpeas and mung beans, Wilderbean pasta is packed with magnesium, folate, zinc, iron, potassium and phosphorus - giving you the nutrients you need, without the supplements.
All legumes are naturally gluten free, just like our pasta. So whether you’re coeliac or just looking to trim down the levels of wheat in your diet, Wilderbean lets you go against the grain and enjoy pasta free from gluten.
1 of your 5 a day
The pasta that not-so-secretly feeds you veggies. Chickpeas are so packed with fibre and nutrients that half a cup counts as one of your five daily recommended servings of vegetables. Not only that, thanks to their protein content the Australian Dietary Guidelines puts them in the same category as meat. Being tasty to boot, they're a delicious trifecta of goodness on your fork. We'll eat to that!
