Anyone ever matched Tinkyada (my fav and a lot of other folks favorite here on the boards) against a gluten-free pasta/spaghetti made in Italy?.....called Senza Glutine, (I think that's what it's called... but correct me if I'm wrong)

I have a friend going to Italy soon and I want to know if it's worth trying to convince her to bring me back some of their gluten-free pasta.

Thanks so much,

Kandee

My friend, the buyer at the health food co op brought me back some of that Italian gluten-free pasta from a trade show to try... I compared it to Tinkyada and personally, no comparison. I still LOVE Tinkyada.

:D We just found this pasta at our local health food store. It is called Bionaturae and is a rice,potato and soy pasta. My son finally said it is like the real thing after trying numerous other pastas and not liking any. The only thing I am concerned about is on the back it says" This product is manufactured in a facility that produces other products which contain wheat. Therefore we test for the presence of gluten during each production cycle." Is this a good thing or something to be avioded? He just loves this and you can imagine how it makes things easier for him and me as the cook.:)

I've never had Tinkyada, although I did just get back from an extended vacation in Italy and just LOVED the gluten-free food I had there! The brand I had not tried before that could be purchased in the pharmacy is called Giusto. It is wonderful! My family is italian and this pasta is by far the closest to the "regular" pasta I've ever had. The farfalle and the fettucine were the best in this brand of pasta. It is definately worth convincing your friend to bring some back for you! Happy eating!

gluten-free since 1997 with positive biopsy

Thanks everyone for your input. damorekids---I'll definitely ask her to bring some Giusto..if she can find it.

If not, I'm happy with the Tinkyada.............was just wondering HOW good the Italian gluten-free pasta REALLY was!!!
