Pasta is a Pillar of the Mediterranean Diet   
March 2018 
Welcome to the new issue of The Truth About Pasta, the newsletter from the International Pasta Organization. Each newsletter features a new and different topic -- all pointing to The Truth About Pasta. The truth is...pasta is healthy, sustainable, convenient, delicious, affordable, doesn't make you fat, and much, much more. Be sure to look for each new issue, with more topics and information.

This month we are introducing a NEW TED-Ed lesson which explains why pasta is a pillar of the Mediterranean Diet.

Since the Mediterranean Diet was first studied by nutrition researchers in the 1950's, there have been countless health benefits associated with this timeless eating pattern. People who eat a Mediterranean Diet have lower rates of heart disease, stroke, breast cancer, and are even more likely to have healthier DNA. Luckily, you don't need to travel any further than your local grocer to discover the region's crave-worthy cuisine. Healthy pasta dishes are an easy way to transform an ordinary dinner into a Mediterranean experience, and jumpstart your journey to better health. Learn more in our new TED-Ed video.

After you view the video, test your knowledge with our TED-Ed lesson.
