Why You’ll Love Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine
Traditional pasta is a staple that’s loved by many, but it also contain wheat flour, which is not a great choice for those with gluten intolerance or Celiac disease. Go ahead and put aside the regular noodles and opt for Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini. This high protein, gluten-free, plant-based pasta is one the entire family will love and tastes just like the real thing, sans flour and the extra calories! Because it’s made with mung beans, a delicious powerhouse variety of green beans, and edamame, it truly creates the perfect al dente texture.
What are mung beans?
Although edamame has made its way into the United States and has been popular for years, mung beans are a bit more of a mystery—but they definitely shouldn’t be! They’re simply a variety of small green legumes, and they have actually been a part of Chinese cuisine for thousands of years (referred to there as nga choi or nga choy). They’re especially great for vegetarians since they’re high in protein, which can be hard to find in non meat sources. Mung beans themselves are incredibly versatile, can be eaten cold or hot, and their slightly sweet flavor means they transition well into dessert recipes, too.
The nutrition of Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini
Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini is made with only three ingredients: organic edamame, organic mung beans, and water. This makes it a powerhouse noodle that will complement any pasta dish and add a veggie-centric flavor. Additionally, because it’s not made with flour or eggs like regular pasta, it’s ideal for those on a gluten-free or vegan diet.
Inside of Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini is heaps of protein—20 grams per serving, to be exact! Protein is vital for the body, acting as a building block for muscles and bones. It also helps to keep bones, tendons, ligaments, and skin feeling healthy and elastic, which helps prevent injury and speeds up recovery time. A lack of protein will lead to feeling worn down and lethargic since the body has to work harder to grow and repair tissue.
Protein directly helps people feel more energetic, especially since it is linked to good blood health. It also contributes to that full feeling after eating, so there’s no cravings after dining on Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini. Try it as a healthy option for lunch that will fuel the body for the rest of the day or as a satisfying dinner.
Every serving of Explore Asian Organic Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccini also provides nearly 10% of the daily recommended iron. A deficiency in iron, also known as anemia, can cause severe fatigue, body weakness, skin problems, brittle nails, and can prevent people from performing normal everyday activities.
Luckily, the iron in these yummy noodles will help contribute to an overall, robust health. It’s particularly known to help reduce and/or eliminate issues with anemia—and not just the iron deficiency-related kind. It can actually help with anemia from chronic disease, anemia in pregnancy, or predialysis anemia, among other varieties.
Overall, iron is simply a big player in optimal blood health and how oxygen gets transported in your body. It produces red blood cells and appears in specific cells of the bloodstream, directly affecting the amount of oxygen being transported through the body. If iron is there to do its job, then blood will be pumping optimally—allow people to feel energized.
