While exploring the Far East, Explore Cuisine’s Founder Joe Spronz wondered if it was possible to create a healthy, bean-based pasta that was delicious as well as nutritious. His idea to reinvent the pasta industry inspired by the soybean noodles he’d discovered on his trip to China, the Explore Cuisine brand was born. Its products are high in protein and fibre, are made from organic ingredients and are gluten free and vegan certified. So you get the taste of pasta with all the benefits of beans including Edamame and mung bean, blackbean, or red lentil available in penne, fettucine or spaghetti shapes. Its Edamame & Mung Bean Fettuccine is an unusual fusion of Asian ingredients made in a wider fettuccine shape, to better pick up sauce and seasoning. Light orange in colour with a pleasant mild nutty flavour, the Red Lentil Penne and Spaghetti are 60g carbs per 100g weight.
