What Brand Of Pasta Do You All Buy?

I have tried EVERYTHING and prefer BiAglut. It's an Italian brand of gluten-free products, has been produced in Italy for more than 45 years by the Italian affiliate of H. J. Heinz Company.

It taste EXACTLY like real wheat pasta. I order the different pasta's we use a few times a year.  The best thing about this pasta is that you can serve it to non-gluten-free people and they don't notice the difference. It is certainly the BEST of the best.

 

 

It's GLUTEN-FREE, WHEAT FREE, MILK FREE AND EGG FREE.
Ingredients:
Cornstarch, Potato Flour, Lupin Flour, Lupin Proteins, Mono and Diglycerides (Emulsifier).

We like Tinkyada.

The three we buy regularly are Brown Rice Spaghetti, Brown Rice Elbows, and Brown Rice Lasagne. We have tried the White Rice Spaghetti, but don't like it as much as the brown rice version.

yeah, we buy the tinkyada, too.  i hadn't found a good sub for egg noodles until i found some in a rinky-dink beach grocery in florida and the brand is:  seitenbacher.  they are made in germany - very light and delicate.  my husband likes them better than 'regular' with his stroganoff :)  you can order them online.

I agree on the Bi-Aglut and on another fantastic Italian pasta.....Le Veneziane.   http://www.quattrobimbi.com/cornpastaspaghetti-2.aspx

It is as good, if not slightly better, than the Bi-Aglut.  I rank either one as the best I have ever tasted but you have to be able to tolerate corn products.  Some people like the rice pasta

but it's more a question of texture for me.  I have fooled people with the Bi-Aglut and Veneziane, which is not so easy to do!

I buy a rice macaroni in bulk (I get the unopened boxes) for something like $1.25 a pound. It is every bit as good as Tinkyada. I was getting penne the same way at an ever so slightly higher price but it just doesn't hold up real well. I think I'm switching to those quinoa pagoda thingers in the blue box. I tried some last month when they were on sale and they're really good.

In the UK I like Doves Farm rice pasta. Penne, twirls and spaghetti are all good, and hold up pretty well.

That's the kind that I decided to switch to! It is really good.

Tinkyada does nothing for me (sorry!) but I prefer making it myself. When I don't, I like one brand I found that has a millet/buckwheat combo as well as sweet potato. Nicer than plain rice or corn but I do not know the name. Great flavour and texture.

After trying some REALLY bad ones, I settled on Hodgson Mill brown rice penne and I'm really happy with it.

Bi-Aglut  is one  of the best....  for  fresh pasta,  Rp's  is  excellent , I use  that  for  cold pasta  salads , holds up  wonderful......there are  a  few  new  brands  that  will be  available  later  in the year.... Tinkyada

 

is  not  a  favorite  but it  is  an  easy  find....

With  Bi-Aglut  most  gluten  eaters  have  no idea  they  are  eating  gluten-free pasta....

Yes, my daughter, her husband and kids didn't believe BiAglut was gluten free, I had to get a package and let them, read Gluten Free on it.

We started out with brown rice pasta but didn't like the texture, switched to the Quinoa pasta but after a while I really disliked the taste, it had such a CORN flavor then a friend told me about Bi-AGlut and we fell in love.

I buy mostly brown rice pasta, and that cheap asian vermicelli from Kroger. Sometime I use corn pasta when I want to thicken a soup or sauce, because that stuff is starchy.  :blink:

I've been eating a lot of corn pasta lately, usually Sammills (they sell it for a good price at my local grocery). I find it holds up better than rice pasta. Or I go down to the Italian grocery and splurge on some good imported italian stuff. They've really got it right! I usually get a rice/corn mix if I'm making dinner for someone or taking potluck, as it's more like "real" pasta

There's also someone in Toronto making pasta from red lentils, beans, a couple other things. It's expensive, so have only gotten the red lentil rotini a couple times. Very hardy.

 

If i was in the US, I would definitely be ordering some of that fresh stuff. Oooh ravioli...

I've had good luck with the rice & corn pasta at Target. It's the store brand, Archer Farms, & it's made in Italy.  I've tried several rice-only brands, & they seemed really starchy. One brand turned the cooking water gelatinous.  However, Target has no dedicated gluten-free section (in spite of my FB posts...lol) so you'll have to look for it in the pasta section.

Very nice tips!! I went to the Whole food store or Market today :) I bought a couple small bags I don't remember what kind they were! I will have to run down and look ...

We adore Asian rice noodles. We have 12 kinds of Asian noodles including mung bean, green bean, cornstarch, glass, vermicelli, etc. All good and naturally gluten free. I do a lot of Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc. cooking.

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.      
    • Rudy's Not Gluten Free
      Rudy's is one of my favorite places to eat, but you do have to be VERY careful due to cross-contamination.  I always get the cutter's choice brisket, some form of potatoes (new potatoes or baked potato), pinto beans, 3-bean salad and use generous slathering of their regular BBQ sauce, not the Sissy Sauce.   My daughter has gotten sick a couple of times dining with us at Rudy's, but we have narrowed down the culprit to cross contamination.  She usually orders the stuffed baked potato, gets brisket (chopped up)--not the chopped BBQ, and asks them to use a new plastic knife to  cut open the potato.  They use tissue to pick up the chopped meat and put it on the potato which also comes with sour cream, butter/margarine, and grated cheddar cheese.  They have always been very courteous about accommodating us.  This has eliminated my daughter from having reactions.  (The regular metal knife had been used on bread.)  I also reach over the tray as it is being filled and place one of their paper tissues over my meat or potato so that when they place my husband's bread slices or sandwich (made with regular bread), crumbs won't get on my food.  I am so thankful for Rudy's--it is so good--and with taking these precautions, I believe it is relatively safe.  
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Thank you, squirmingitch. I'll pass that on to Mom, too. Cristiana, did they ever determine what caused your nerve pain or do you now think it was related to Celiac? That form of shingles sounds awful (well, any form sounds awful - my mom's had it 3 times!) and fortunately I do not think that's what's ailing me.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
