Mung Bean Fettuccini

For those still hunting for LC pasta, I just got my most recent order from Netrition, and it included some Organic Mung Bean Fettuccine. I just tried it tonight...Wow! Not as thick as wheat pasta, but nicely chewey, and a 2 oz. serving really filled me up, which that much wheat pasta never did. Also, only 6g net carbs per serving. I put some Moroccan Spiced Chicken stew on top, and it was delicious. And the best news: 2 hours after dinner, my BG was 91. There is also a black bean spaghetti from the same manufacturer, but I haven't tried that yet.

In case this doesn't come up automatically, here's the link:

You just boil it for 5-7 minutes and it's done, which makes me see a carbonara in my future. I also imagine sesame noodles on my table this summer. I suspect I'll be eating a lot of this.

Thanks for the review. I've seen this product at the grocery store and wondered about it.

Thanks for the review! Can you describe the taste or smell? I've tried the shirataki and kelp noodles in the past but can't stomach the weird smells, textures and taste. I've been using the CarbaNada noodles which I really like but those are 18NC per serving so a very occasional treat.

Thanks!

be careful with the net carbs there. I remember when their black bean spaghetti product looked like it had only a few net carbs when it really had 18. I'm not sure I trust their labeling.

I can only go by the label, but the label says per 2 oz. serving, Total Carbohydrates 17 g, Dietary Fiber 11g, and Sugars 6g. Ingredients are Organic Mung Beans (92%), water (8%). As I said, it didn't affect my BG after the meal.

Taste was fairly bland as I recall, but I had a spicy sauce on it, so it may have masked the flavor. I'll have to try it soon with just butter and some parmesan for a more stringent taste test.

I don't think I could get past that gray color of them personally. They look like they were cooked in dirty mop water or something...

It's actually more green than grey - sort of like spinach pasta. And the taste is very mild, not at all offensive (really, almost no taste, so make a good sauce).

I could do green pasta. That video in the link must have been bad quality or something. Maybe something worth trying since a few said it didn't raise their blood sugar much. I'm like uber sensitive to that. Alot of people are upset when theirs spikes up to 150 or 175....mine goes up to 4 or 500!

Did anyone have issues with this stalling you at all? Or havent you ate it enough to find out yet?
