Two words about Chickpea Pasta Gluten Free Strozzapreti 250g

Handmade in Tuscany with 100% chickpea flour this pasta is quite dense and absorbs sauces especially Passata Tomato or seafood sauce well to give a more succulent and full-bodied flavor to your cooking.

This Chickpeas Pasta Gluten Free is suitable for vegans and is high in protein, making this gourmet pasta a milestone of the Mediterranean Diet which based on legumes, Mediterranean ancient grains and veggies and fruit.

It’s made using artisan methods and dried at a low temperature by one of the oldest Pastificio in Italy established in 1860.


The benefits of a organic gluten free pasta diet are therefore obvious for coeliacs. In fact, it is estimated that more than 2.5 million people worldwide suffer from this disorder. Before embarking on a gluten-free diet, it is therefore always best to make sure that it is necessary for one’s health.

The removal of gluten from the daily diet will, for coeliacs and people intolerant to gluten, bring benefits and relief from all those annoying symptoms associated with eating the protein, thus reducing gastrointestinal discomfort.

Even pasta, which is originally a gluten-rich food, can therefore be included in the diet of people intolerant to this protein thanks to the development of different gluten-free pasta ranges.

The Story

 Pasta Morelli 1860 was founded in 1860, and is a family-run enterprise, the fifth generation of the Morelli family, siblings Lucia, Antonio and Marco, continue to run the company today preserving its traditions. It produces a vast range of specialities, using ancient craft techniques, free of both preservatives and colouring agents. The result is truly wholesome pasta, with a wonderfully rich flavour and full consistency.

The products of the ancient Pasta M0relli production factory are unique, the secret being an ingredient that is not found in most common types of pasta, which is wheat germ, the heart of the grain itself and which contains vitamin A, vitamin D, as well as vegetable protein.

Health benefits of chickpea pasta

Both older and newer research supports eating more plant-based foods, including legumes like chickpeas, to aid your overall health (2Trusted Source, 14Trusted Source, 15Trusted Source).

May lower your risk of heart disease
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for adults in the United States (16Trusted Source).

Emerging research shows that eating chickpeas and other legumes may lower your risk of this condition due to their content of fiber and polyphenol plant compounds (1Trusted Source).

One study in middle aged men associated eating beans and legumes more than 3 times per week with a 35% lower risk of heart disease, compared with those who didn’t eat these foods regularly (17Trusted Source).

Furthermore, swapping certain foods for legumes may also aid heart health. One study shows that replacing red meat with legumes and other plant-based proteins may risk of heart disease by 14% (18Trusted Source).

May improve blood sugar control
Maintaining healthy blood sugar levels may help reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, as well as related complications like heart disease and mental dysfunction (19, 20Trusted Source).

Both fiber and protein help slow digestion, in turn slowing the release of sugar into your bloodstream (10Trusted Source, 11, 12Trusted Source).

Chickpea pasta, along with other bean- and legume-based pastas, offers more fiber and protein than both white and wheat pastas. Thus, it’s likely better for blood sugar management than other pastas (7Trusted Source, 8Trusted Source, 9Trusted Source).

In addition, older studies suggest that eating legumes and beans — especially in place of refined grains — may improve blood sugar control (21Trusted Source, 22Trusted Source, 23Trusted Source).

May support digestive health
Both soluble and insoluble fiber aid digestive health. Chickpeas contain both types but are an especially good source of soluble fiber (1Trusted Source, 24).

Soluble fiber attracts water and forms a gel during digestion, which helps slow digestion. Insoluble fiber provides bulk in the stool and helps the stool move through your digestive system properly (25).

Chickpeas also boast prebiotic fiber, which supports a healthy gut microbiome — or the collection of bacteria in your digestive tract — by providing food for the good bacteria known as probiotics (26Trusted Source, 27Trusted Source).

Fiber-rich diets have been linked to a reduce risk of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and colorectal cancer, as well as regular bowel movements and better digestive health (1Trusted Source, 27Trusted Source, 28, 29Trusted Source).

Chickpeas and other legumes have been shown to play an important role in digestive health, and eating chickpea pasta may offer similar benefits to whole chickpeas due to its fiber content (1).

May help you maintain your weight
Chickpea pasta is packed with fiber and protein, two nutrients that help you feel full for longer. They work by slowing digestion and the release of sugar into your bloodstream (10Trusted Source, 11, 12Trusted Source).

Studies show that replacing refined grains like white pasta with fiber- and protein-rich foods like whole grains and legumes may aid appetite regulation and lead you to eat less overall. In turn, these effects may aid weight management (30, 31Trusted Source).

Replacing white pasta with chickpea pasta may also help you fill up on less food and feel fuller for longer.
