Italian Pastas Vs. Tinkyada
0

6 posts in this topic

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!!!

    • I used to worry I was having a heart attack. The symptoms, a pressing, intense chest pain on left side of chest lasting several minutes sometimes. I went through extensive cardio tests and when they turned up negative was told to live with it. I had bouts of it through my life until I went gluten free for entirely different symptoms. Getting rid of those pains was an unexpected but welcome side effect. It's unpleasant and scary but at least if you know that's the case you have an explanation. Don't let that stop you from seeking medical advice if it persists or is different in any way however.  This is, as ever, good advice: Just think about a busy pizza place on a weekend. Flour in the air and on the hands of kitchen staff. Someone phones in an order. Are they 'really' gluten free or just (insert stereotype) hipster posers impressing their friends with their fad diet. Either way no time to change gloves or use different tools. etc etc. It's a high risk environment.  It sucks, but in these first few months particularly you're better errring on the side of caution.   
    • ???? Lundberg do not use oats in ANY of their products. check the grains section http://www.lundberg.com/products/grains/ I guess try lotus if it still bothers you.....you might be like me and all grains/carbs cause some kind of gut issues. I had to go paleo/keto.....thought for years it was just bad gut bacteria but ended up being another AI issues that reacted to carbs.
    • Unfortunately I have a intolerance to oats so Lundberg bothers me. Thanks so much though. 
    • Thank you guys! Great info and I'm researching your suggestions RIGHT now. I am sure I will have questions - I will ask my doc about vitamin deficiency testing and I will NOT do that gluten challenge!
    • Oh wow!  I haven't been here in days because I have been POURING over the most recent SIBO literature!  Have you heard of Dr Nemechek?  https://www.nemechekconsultativemedicine.com/ His approach is very simple and essentially you STOP using probiotics and start taking Inulin.  It is all very fascinating and falling in with what we are seeing with our daughter. In a nutshell he says that the bacteria that has overpopulated is "damaging" the system (second brain).  That they are meant to stay in the colon but start to grow out (for multiple reasons) and expand into areas of the intestines that should be populated by other area specific bacteria.  They slowly take over and expand out further.  Probiotics feed EVERYTHING and make the SIBO worse and Antibiotics kills EVERYTHING and does nothing to solve the problem either.  There is one antibiotic - Rifaximin that stays in the colon and does not permeate its walls.  Other than that he suggests that you FEED the good bacteria and allow them to thrive and naturally win back the territory.  Inulin is the food that they eat and taking Inulin (Chickory root fibre) will nourish the healthy bacteria.  3 months ago we stripped away Gluten and dairy and saw HUGE results and then lost them.  We also introduced a very high quality multi-strain probiotic.  Dr Nemechek says that the fact that some people see gains when they go gluten-free/DF because they essentially "starve" the bad bacteria and there is a bit of a dying off.  But it is not fixing the core issue and often you can see food intolerances and symtoms worsen even though you are still gluten-free/DF.  This is EXACTLY the dynamic we are seeing with our daughter.  She is eating AIR but is still in pain and now her Sensory issues seem worse than ever (thanks to the probiotic maybe)? He also says that the healthy bacteria secrete an acidic compound that kills off the bad bacteria which also explains why some people feel better when they consume ACV. I find the entire thing fascinating!
