Protein Pasta (50g of Protein Per 100g of Pasta)

Here is a delicious new product from the Dr Zaks range. First we had Protein Bread and now we have Protein Pasta.

I have been eating this on a daily basis for three days now and it is very good. It is just like pasta in terms of texture and taste. (Which we expect) yet it has a high protein and low in carbohydrate content.

Here is a video with my initial views and later opinion on it, if you don’t have the time to watch the video then just order it once it is available via the link in the video description or at the bottom of this page.

Many thanks for taking the time to review Dr Zak’s high protein pasta samples.

Here are the key facts:

Dr Zak’s high protein pasta is the cleanest high protein pasta’s on the market. By combining two great protein sources with traditional Durum Wheat, we have turned one of the most staple food sources that traditionally delivered high levels of carbohydrate (up to 75g per 100g), into a protein packed reduced carb winner. No colours, No preservatives and definitely NO additives. 

Where does the protein come from?

Pea Protein Isolate:

Pea Protein Isolate is commonly regarded as the best vegetable protein source on the market. It is absorbed relatively slowly by the digestive system when compared to other protein sources such as whey protein. This provides your body with a more sustained supply of amino acids and nutrients, making it ideal for consumption throughout the day. It is particularly high in the Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs).

Fresh Eggs:

Well what more can be said about eggs other than they are the perfect source of protein. 
What are the nutritionals for Dr Zak’s protein pasta?

Per 100g
50g of protein
30g of carbs (of which 2.3g sugars)
Fat 7.5 (of which saturates 1.5g)
Salt 1.5g
Fibre 2g

How does this compare to normal pasta?

Per 100g
12.3g of protein
73.1g of carbs (of which 3.5g sugars)
Fat 1.7 
Salt 1.5g
Fibre 2.5g
The key things to note are the very low protein numbers as well as the high carbohydrate levels in normal pasta. This is before you even take into consideration the only protein source from normal pasta is from the wheat flour.
