Scientists Seek To Develop A Nutrient-Rich Pasta

September 3, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
Australian and Italian scientists are collaborating on research projects whose goal is to develop a “super spaghetti” packed with healthy functional ingredients. According to the Food Navigator report, the researchers hope to improve the basic understanding of the durum wheat cell walls used to make spaghetti. One project will look into how durum wheat growth affects starch levels and fiber, and into how fiber levels in pasta might be improved. The second project will examine the roles played by arabinoxylans and beta-glucans – dietary fiber components – in determining bread dough and pasta quality.
