IMHO I would go for Dreamfield if you crave pasta. Noted that after ketosis, though, pasta will not taste the same and you will feel like you can take it or leave it. I read somewhere that soy products inhibit weight loss.

Like all seeds, soybeans have phytic acid in their hulls, but soybeans have considerably more. This substance binds with several minerals, notably calcium, zinc and iron in such a way that it prevents the digestion from absorbing them. This can result in deficiencies of these essential minerals.

Soybeans also contain other undesirable chemicals:

Potent enzyme inhibitors that block the action of trypsin, a digestive enzyme needed to digest proteins. This leads not only to chronic amino acid deficiencies but also to enlargement of the pancreas (in animals) and cancer.

Hemaglutinin, which promotes the clumping of red blood cells. These clumped cells are less able to take up oxygen and carry it to body tissues. Hemaglutinin is also known to ****** growth.

Fermentation reduces these harmful effects. Miso and tamari are fermented soy products.
