Wellside Foods are set to launch their new range of high protein, Pure Pasta dried fusilli. Pure Pasta is particularly suitable for professional and amateur athletes, those with a lactose or gluten intolerance, and low carb diets due to it being high protein and low carbohydrate. It is also an excellent dietary choice for maintaining fitness and for older people, due to its high protein content which helps to maintain muscle mass and healthy bones.

Wellside Managing Director, Leigh Morris, says, “We are delighted to be bringing Wellside Pure Pasta to the UK market as it has so many health benefits as part of a balanced diet, being a high protein, low carb product. It’s vegetarian, and tasty too!” My youngest son is Type 1 diabetic, not yet coeliac, so we have made the switch as part of our weekly pasta offering. My eldest son, being a body-conscious teenager, also now enjoys various pasta dishes every week as a high protein alternative to traditional wheat based pasta – particularly after county rugby training and gym sessions. It’s a win win situation in our household – perfect!”.

Leigh continues, “Wellside Pure Pasta provides 43% of its energy from proteins and contains 40% less carbs than conventional pasta. Getting more technical, Wellside Pure Pasta contains BCAAs – Branched Chain Amino Acids – Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine, which boost muscle growth and enhance exercise performance. They may also help reduce fatigue after exercise. Unlike many food supplements which deliver high protein and BCAAs, such as powders, shakes, pills or granules, Wellside Pure Pasta is real, tasty food!”

Wellside Pure Pasta is made from high quality pea protein, and contains less than 1% sugars and less than 1% fats, with no added soy, eggs, milk or whey products. It does not contain trans fats, colourings or preservatives, or any products of animal origin.

Conveniently packed in 125g two-serving portions, Wellside Pure Pasta is available from Riverside under the Wellside Direct brand online via Amazon from Summer 2019, just a click away.
