A few things about pasta:

Pasta is rich in complex carbohydrates, iron (it helps the production of hemoglobin), selenium (a very powerful antioxidant), calcium (to strengthen the bones), phosphorus, proteins and vitamins of B complex (Thiamine, Riboflavin, Niacin, folic acid), while it contains very little fat, cholesterol and sodium.

The proteins which it contains are of high quality and they are digestible, something attractive for infants, children who are growing up, patients with chronic diseases and old people who need high quality proteins.

Also, the phytosterols that are contained in pasta help reduce cholesterol in blood, in a natural way, while the high content of tryptophan plays an important role in our mood.

According to recent researches, it seems that pasta and wholegrain cereals reduce the risk of colon, bladder, oral and ovary cancer while they are beneficial to the cardiovascular system.

This is mainly due to phytoestrogens and folic acid which it contains, in combination with fibers.

In essence, pasta is a pure, vegetable food which offers strength, energy which is slowly released and essential nutrients.

If pasta is combined with simple vegetable sauces, red meat, poultry or fish and low fat dairy products, it can become a healthy, rich in flavor but low in calories meal.

In addition, the complex carbohydrates included in it are the best energy source for the human body.  The low glycemic index of complex carbohydrates (they are slowly and gradually absorbed by the body), in contrast with the simple carbohydrates (they are immediately absorbed) which abruptly increase glucose levels in blood, helps maintain the right levels of glucose and prolong satiety.

This low burning of complex carbohydrates maintains high energy levels in the body for longer periods and for this reason pasta is especially beneficial for athletes and children. Pasta is an equally ideal food for the elderly because it is digestible and easy to cook.

Although it is commonly believed that pasta is fattening, something like that does not seem to be true. More specifically, pasta is placed in the base of the Mediterranean food pyramid and a moderate consumption of it does not cause any health problems and it is not bad for your figure.

This means that the consumption of pasta, 2-3 times a week, as an accompaniment to protein food can be fully incorporated in a healthy diet.

Pasta covers the daily carbohydrate needs of our organism (50-55%), while at the same time it does not burden it with fats, cholesterol and sodium. Perhaps we should be more careful with the garnishment of the dish (sauces, cream, butter) because this can really skyrocket the calorie content of it, as well as its content in fats and salt.
