Nutritional facts about pasta

Pasta is high in carbohydrates and therefore very suitable for today's nutritional needs. Classic Swiss pasta contains eggs – as opposed to traditional Italian pasta – which additionally enhances its nutritional value.

Pasta is an important part of our daily nutrition

Balanced nutrition is not only enjoyable to the taste buds, but also makes you feel good! But what exactly should be on the daily meal plan? The nutrition pyramid gives us a good overview. It serves as a general guide for the daily recommended nutritional ingredients. Especially important is a balance among the different product groups. Grain products, which also include pasta, form the basis for daily nutrition and should make up about 40% of the total. Pasta can therefore be on the meal plan every day and is easy to combine with the other product groups.

Pasta as part of low-fat nutrition

The daily energy supply of calories to our bodies should be made up of about 55-60% carbohydrates, 25-30% fat and 10-15% protein. Carbohydrates are digested especially slowly and provide the body with energy over an extended period. This is important, to allow us to stay active all day long. Pasta has a high carbohydrate content, which supplies the body with plenty of low-fat energy.
