Pasta is Good for You   
August 2017
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 good for you.

Pasta is a particularly smart choice for those trying to eat healthier, because it is a complex carbohydrate. This means that the pasta provides a steady source of energy, and doesn't spike your blood sugar. That said, pasta is not intended to be eaten plain. When combined with other healthy foods like fruits, vegetables, or beans, or blended with olive oil, herbs, tomato sauce and lean proteins like fish, it becomes a health professional's dream. Learn why this beloved dish is good for you in our new TED-Ed video.

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