Vitamin B9

White pasta is a great source of vitamin B9, or folate, which plays a vital role in red blood cell development. A serving of white pasta provides 167 micrograms of vitamin B9, almost 50% of the daily recommended intake established by the Institute of Medicine.


There’s a reason why athletes need to “carbo load” the night before a game or race. Carbohydrates serve as a primary source of energy for your body. They help fuel your body throughout the day, and they also promote a healthy digestive system. Unless you’re running a marathon or playing in the Raiders vs. Ravens game, it’s best to enjoy pasta carbohydrates in moderation.


Whole-wheat pasta provides a considerable amount of daily fiber, which is an essential component of a healthy diet. A high-fiber diet offers a variety of benefits. It helps maintain bowel health, lowers cholesterol levels, helps control blood sugar levels, and aids in achieving weight loss.

Well-Balanced Meal

Pasta can serve as a base for healthy dishes rich in healthy fats and vegetables. If you’re looking for the healthiest option on the menu, choose a tomato-based sauce over a cream-based sauce. Select the dish that offers the most vegetables, and ask your server for low-fat options.
