Dreamfields Healthy Carb Living Pasta

I found Dreamfields Healthy Carb Living Pasta in the grocery store this evening.
It says 5g digestible carbs per serving. However, the the back has 41 total carbs, 5 fiber and 31 protected carbs.

What are protected carbs?
Can I count this as 5 carbs a serving on the Atkins diet?

Hello!

There are a couple of threads about this pasta on the Main board. For most people it doesn't bother them and they count the lower carb number.

For some it raised Blood Sugar so if you are diabetic make sure you're checking your BS.

Of course you shouldn't be eating pasta in Atkins Induction no matter which Atkins plan you're doing!

ETA: If you are continuing induction carb levels but beyond the first two weeks I'd consider that OWL.

HTH

We have been doing Atkins for about 4 months now. I have lost 35 and my husband 66. So even though we are aiming for about 20 to 25 carbs, I guess that would be OWL!! LOL I think we will give it a try and see how it goes. I suppose it's just like the bars and shakes and things like that. For some people it seems to stall their weight loss and others it does not. I have been able to lose with having the bars. I also like the bars because they are very high in fiber. I would much rather get 10 grams of fiber from an Atkins bar than take a bunch of pills each day!!
