Has anyone here tried Dreamfield pasta? If so what do you think about it?

We really like it here, and my BS is okay with it. We also like whole wheat Barilla which to us tastes as good as the regular, and I do well with that one too. Tried many two years ago, that I did not like as far as whole wheat pasta, until I tried that one. Also, the Ronzoni Smart Taste macaroni we've had a few times, and it has lots of fiber also, and tastes great, it's regular but it doesn't spike up my BS.

Dreamfields is the only pasta I buy. It tastes just as good as regular pasta. My only word of caution is DO NOT OVERCOOK IT! If you over cook it and go past the aldente stage it will affect blood sugar just as bad as traditional pasta. I've checked my blood sugars after eating it and it barely makes the numbers move.

That's really good to know. I actually am sort of OCD about keeping pasta to al dente but it is good to know.

For those of you who really enjoy pasta, but need to give it up, try cooking bean sprouts and using them instead of pasta. I think you may find that this is an excellent substitute to spaghetti and is very tasty and much lighter and better for you than pasta. If I use canned sprouts, i rinse them, boil, and rinse a few times to get the taste out of them. Try it. You will see what I mean.

Oh, yeah!!! That's a favorite in our household. You can sometimes find $1.00 off coupons on facebook or in many diabetic-friendly magazines. Be on the lookout!!! :)

Great tip Ray…Thanks..I am a coupon addict so when I can get one, I'm there. BTW Dreamfield is good when I can find it. Easier to find in DC than in NC.

I also eat Dreamfields regularly…my 11 year old cannot stand the taste of 'whole wheat' pasta, so in the spirit of compromise we have discovered Dreamfields. It does not impact my BS and He doesn't notice a difference. We are both Winners!!

I eat the Dreamfield pasta regularly. I can't tell the difference between it and other pastas. Personally, I think it tastes good. It is supposed to have only 5 digestable carbs. When I eat this for dinner, my BS number is not as high as with regular pasta. I can't explain it, it just is.

I do like Dreamfields pasta-tastes just like real pasta to me! They even have a website so you can order online, Tweetydele, if that helps. You still have to watch the calories, but my sugar doesn't spike with it. I also eat the whole grain pastas too, with veggies and sauce, cause I think that type of pasta is more sour tasting. Dreamfields is good with pesto too :)

I have had it a few times, but prefer the whole wheat pasta I grow up eating.

I think Dreamfields taste just like reg pasta only it doesn't raise my BS. If you love reg pasta you will enjoy Dreamfields. I love pasta too!!

It's made with LOTS of fiber. It's a vegetable fiber similar to the type found in artichokes. It's called inulin. It's used in a lot of other products such as bread that has a drastically lower carb count per serving.

It is supposed to be a slow absorbing carb so you don't get the high spikes. Unfortunately for me, it doesn't work that way. It spikes me high were whole grain pasta doesn't so I stay with it.

I am able to find a brand of bread here in Charleston, WV called Healthy Life. It has between 5 and 7 g of carbs per slice. I'm very happy to be able to have a sandwich now and then and not pay the price!!

I think I've tried those tortilla wraps. They are really good tasting and don't cause much of a rise in my numbers either…:o)
