I ate about half a cup last night. If you look on the side of the box it shows the Dreamfields version of the carbs. One serving is supposedly 5g carbs. I didn't measure my blood sugar and have only eaten it once so can't really say how it affects my progress (I'm also less than a week into low carb).

But it sure was good!

I tried these before I started my woe and I loved them, but now I am like you, I just don't know. I think I'll wait until I lose more weight to try them again.

Just another note...if it is not cooked exactly how package discribes it is no different than regular pasta. I would not try until maintenence...and who can say they inly eat the designated amount and can cook it precisely how they say...kinda sketchy.

Gluten intolerance nulls this discussion fully, so if you have any issues with grasses (if you sneeze when you mow the lawn as an example), stay away from all grass-based foods until you've been further tested for allergies by a qualified medical professional.

Dreamfields does what it claims if the instructions are followed to the letter, you don't reheat or store in a sauce, and you have no aversions to grass-based foods.

I have aversions, so it makes me hungry and congested and causes inflammation. Others without aversions to grass-based foods tend to do just fine with it. It depends on the person.

I finally tried Dreamfields 3 years after losing weight. I checked blood sugar after one hour and after 2 hours. No elevation in glucose. Regular pasta would have elevated my blood sugar quite a bit. However us former fatties have to watch the amount and frequency of this indulgence. It is nice to be able to have pasta around when you need to prepare something quickly. Very nice with pasta and parmesan.

It's one of those ymmv things-use at your own risk. Some people can eat it without any adverse effects. A lot of people can't. Just be careful with it.

I eat it but rarely. Mostly only when I have company. Been on maintenance for years. I prefer zucchini in place of pasta. Last night I made zucchini lasagna and even my DH says he doesn't miss the noodles.

Sundays are pasta days for us and the grocery stores do not carry it in Canada so I need to go to the US to buy it or order on line. Very precious, so I make regular pasta for everyone else and have 2 ounces of Dreamfields for me It tastes the same as regular pasta. I have only had it twice but I did not have any other carbs that day, no fruits and vegetables. As the 5 carbs is too good to be true and I did not want to take any chances.

I make regular pasta for everyone else and make 2 ounces of Dreamfields for me. So not to feel left out. I have only had it twice but did not have any other carbs that day. 5 carbs is too good to be true so I did not want to take any chances just in case the 5 carbs is not exactly true. I did not loose the following day but lost the day after. As I do not loose everyday I guess no harm was done.

On one occasion my son wanted to try it and he loved it, there is no difference in taste between regular pasta and Dreamfields.

There's a lot of controversy about Dreamfield's pasta out there. I have read articles that debunk the studies that allow them to make the claims about NCs they do. However, I've also read the opposite. The ingredient that they use is called inulin, which is supposed to make it less digestible. And there all kinds of pros and cons about inulin out there.

All that said, if I'm going to eat pasta, which is very rare these days, I eat Dreamfields.
I can't taste any difference in it from other pastas. It's very good. I just don't count on its claims being true, don't they aren't. I just make sure I don't have much of it or often, to cover my bases.

I eat it once a week with no problems (off my current plan). I think its YMMV but it is ok for me. You'll never know how it affects you until you try it. (im one of those people who can't have other low carb substitutes so its surprising I do ok on it!)

Oh Boy I didn't know it contained inulin...probably a good thing I have never tried...inulin is a big nono for my gut...it doesn't play well with me and it causes abdominal distress for others here too.
I suppose that would force prtion cotrol or one would be up all night with abdominal cramping.
Some can handle it...me only in very small amounts.

Well, it's been 5 days since I ate that Dreamfields and I've been struggling with cravings. The pasta is my suspect although I can't prove it.

love this pasta whether or not I am sticking on the low carb plan or not! the only thing I can say is to cut the cooking time or it turns to mush for any of the products.

Cleo nailed it.

i had no problem with it. i followed directions exactly. limited my intake to 1 suggested portion size (which differs with the pasta shape btw). also, i make sure i have a fat and protein with it...AND i am type 2 diabetic. But, like almost everyhing else, it is a YMMV food. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI
