Fueling health with Fiber
Prebiotic Fiber plays an important role in creating a robust microbiome. With regular consumption of prebiotic fiber, we experience a positive effect on the gut-brain axis.
Consuming 3 Farm Daughters pasta creates short chain fatty acids in the large intestine, like butyrate. In turn, signals our natural GLP-1 hormone to communicate to our body that we are full (for longer)!
Because our pasta creates this butyrate production, it truly makes our pasta one of a kind and kind of like a nutritional superhero🦸🏻♀️
Wheat is made up by 2 types of starch: Amylose & Amylopectin.
Amylose typically makes up for 22-35% and amylopectin 65-78%.
The speciality wheat we use in our pasta is the inverse (containing >70% amylose) which is yielding a higher resistant starch fiber content in the grain, naturally.
Therefore, more prebiotic fiber - from a natural, clean source.
So, why is this important?
Because our pasta is made from a resistant starch wheat, it does just that in your body. Our pasta resists digestion in the small intestine and passes to your large intestine where it starts to breakdown and feed your microbiome.
Benefits of it RESISTING:
🩸 Low Glycemic Index Response
💪🏻 Good Gut Health
🤗 Feeling Fuller Longer
💩 Helps Keep You Regular
🎉 Increases GLP-1
What is the microbiome?
The microbiome is a bunch of tiny living things like bacteria and viruses that live inside our body, mainly in our gut, but also on our skin and in our mouth. These tiny creatures help us digest food, keep us healthy, and even affect our mood. Having a good mix of these tiny creatures is important for our overall health.
When you eat our pasta, it creates the production of butyrate, which creates a robust microbiome.
What does Glycemic Index mean?
A low glycemic response, or low glycemic index (GI), describes how a carbohydrate-containing food affects blood sugar levels after consumption. Foods with a low GI release sugar into the bloodstream slowly and steadily, which helps maintain stable blood sugar levels and provides sustained energy.
We placed our pasta through a rigorous clinical trial which showed it to have a Low GI Response!
What is GLP-1?
GLP-1, short for Glucagon-Like Peptide-1, is a hormone that helps control blood sugar in our body. It is important because it slows down the emptying of the stomach, promoting a feeling of fullness, and can also inhibit the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels.
Our pasta stimulates butyrate, which stimulated GLP-1, which GLP-1 activates satiety signals in the brain making you feel fuller longer.
