Reviews For Brown Rice Pasta - Penne
Based on 20 Reviews
All Tinkyata pasta is great. Have used them for years. Do not turn to mush and taste great.
gluten free pasta
I have found this product to be the best pasta yet. It holds together well after cooking and holds the flavor of your sauce well. Highly recommend. It is a very difficult product to find in stores. I would have it shipped from NE
This is very tasty, gluten-free pasta. Several of my family can't tolerate gluten and not all gluten-free pasta is good - especially for those who eat wheat pasta. This is a great alternative for all.
Close, But Not Quite Like Wheat Pasta
I've tried many non-wheat pastas: black bean, edamame, quinoa, etc. They all have their merits -- none are super close to the wheat variety. Years ago, I tried brown rice pasta and it was pretty bad. Methods have improved since then. This is now my first choice for a wheat alternative pasta.
this was the first time buying this pasta. I was great, did not soak up all the liquids and does not get soggy. Will definitely buy again!
Great gluten free pasta
Cooks up firm, good texture. I like this brand a lot and buy all the different shapes, but this pasta shape is my favorite.
My family loves brown rice pasta as an alternative to regular pasta. Cooks up nice and firm, not mushy like wheat pastas.
Tinka Joy pasta
Lovely, not mushy. Cooks al dente
Brown Rice Pasta to the Rescue!
Eliminating gluten and corn, among other ingredients, from my family's diet was not easy. Pasta and tortilla chips are some of our staples. Enter brown rice!
These Tinkyada Brown Rice Pasta Penne are perfect. They are high in fiber, have no wheat or other grains and cook just like traditional pasta. I must say, it took me a few tries to get the pasta cooked just right. I was undercooking it. It's all good now.
Purchase brown rice pasta and so much more at Thrive Market online. I do and love the savings!

No Mush is Correct!
When eating gluten free, I desperately missed pasta. Not just the wheat taste, but the al dente texture. I've tried several different brands of GF pastas and have been disappointed every time. The GF pastas made with corn are not for me. They taste like wet tortilla chips. Other brands congealed into a big ball of mush, you couldn't tell they stared out as noodles.
While perusing the GF isle at my local grocer, I came across this Tinkyada Brown Rice Penne Pasta. I was skeptical about trying yet another brand. The almost $5 price also caused me to pause. I went ahead and made the purchase and was pleasantly surprised. The taste and texture of Tinkyada is wonderful. But it wasn't until I joined Thrive before it became a dish I eat many times a month. Thrive Market gives me a great price on something that is too expensive at the grocers.
Finally! Good Gluten-Free Noodles!
My daughter has a gluten allergy, so we've had to adjust a lot of our groceries purchases to reflect that. We don't want her to feel left out, so we all try to eat the gluten-free versions. Up until now, eating pasta was a chore because (honestly!) the older gluten-free versions of pasta we were trying were kinda gross. Pasta Joy changed that. It actually cooks up pretty nicely, and as long as you don't overcook it, it doesn't end up mushy or squishy tasting at all. It has a nice, enjoyable bite to it, and even after trying five or six bags of this, we've found the taste to be about the same for all of the bags. I wish the bags had more pasta in them, but I'm just glad we've found a good gluten-free pasta.
Great for pasta dishes
While this isn't my favorite brand, I do like it. I love the rice flavor and like that it give a different taste to many of my dishes. It's also great for tuna noodle salads and more.
I like that it cooks up well, and you can even bake it after boiling and it still doesn't get all clumped together.

Tinkyada makes the best gluten-free pasta I have had in a long time. My husband even likes them and he isn't gluten-free.
I have tried many brands, most of them fall apart or they have a strange taste or texture.
I prefer them al dente.
- Rose Chen
This stuff cooks up good and tastes good in any pasta dishes. If you over cook them they get sticky and mushy though. Be careful to watch the pot on not cook too long.
I like these noodles a lot and they taste great with just a little butter and garlic. Maybe add some cheese.

Average at best
Trying to cut out white flour from my diet, and don't like wheat pasta. This was supposed to be one of the best, but it's just ok.
Plus, it has soy, and I'm trying to avoid soy as much as possible, though they say it's on traces of soy I guess. It takes awhile to cook, but it isn't squishy and holds up nicely. I guess if you use a lot of tomato sauce, you wouldn't really be able to tell that it was from brown rice.
Shocked but how good it is
I switched over to gluten free pasta not because I'm allergic to gluten, but because I wanted to eat healthier.
This pasta has no wheat either, which I was finding hard to digest properly. It boils nicely and doesn't have that chewy texture of wheat pasta that made that such an iffy product. Try this if you're looking for something different.

Replaced wheat pasta
Once my daughter was put on a gluten free diet, I switched to this brown rice pasta. It has no wheat or gluten, and it tastes fantastic.
I defy anyone to say they can tell the difference between this and whole wheat pasta. And unlike some whole wheat pasta, this boils up perfectly, not mushy or too hard.

Really good for Rice Pasta
My family and I really enjoyed this Rice Pasta Penne. This is one of the "sturdier" gluten free rice pastas I have found. It cooks rather well-it doesn't fall apart and tastes pretty good as well. We will definitely have it again. I only gave it four stars because it does take longer to cook or it'll be too al dante, but other wise it is a great rice pasta.
great product which does not go all gooey and mushy
You can’t tell the difference if its wheat pasta or rice pasta if you make a great tasting sauce to go with it. Being gluten free makes it healthier and fit for everyone who cannot eat gluten based products. I have tried many brands of pastas and I find it is a great product which does not go all gooey and mushy when over- cooked a bit. People who want to switch to a healthier lifestyle must try it once.
