Santa Lucia Spaghettii (500g)
Spaghetti is one of the most popular forms of pasta, and it’s used in dishes all around the world. Most spaghetti is made from durum wheat, so it’s high in carbohydrates and includes all the nutrients found in refined white flour.
Regular spaghetti is fairly neutral, diet-wise, but whole-wheat spaghetti can be a good source of fiber. The amount of spaghetti and whatever you put on top of your pasta is probably is what makes for a healthy meal or not.
One serving is equal to one cup of cooked spaghetti or 2 ounce of dry spaghetti, which is about the amount of dry pasta that would fit through a soda bottle opening. Spaghetti is not a low-calorie food. It’s made from grain, so it’s energy-dense. Each serving has over 200 calories, mostly from 200 calories, mostly from complex carbohydrates, so it’s important to watch your portion sizes if you’re on a weight-loss diet. Keep in mind that it’s rare to eat just the pasta so cheesy sauces and other high-calorie toppings can add lots more calories.
A serving of spaghetti also has more than 40 grams of carbohydrates, so it’s not well suited to low-carbohydrate type diets. Spaghetti is a good source of iron and is low in fat.

Spaghetti isn’t bad for you because you do need carbohydrates in a balanced diet, but most people get more refined grains than they need, so you’re better off with spaghetti made with whole wheat flour.In fact, about half of your daily grains should be whole grains.
The reason whole wheat spaghetti is better for you is that it has more fiber than regular pasta. Fiber is essential for a healthy digestive system, and most Americans don’t get the daily recommended amount, so eating more whole wheat pasta is a great idea.
