* Awesome product. We eat this fairly regularly along with the Mung Bean Fettuccine.
Although this states that there are a fair amount of carbs, including 15g "Other Carbs," I've never had a blood sugar spike after eating this. In fact for the most part my blood sugar drops.
The texture is spot on for noodles and the taste of bean is not very strong. Plus, there is a lot of protein in it for good measure! Great product and I'm glad netrition is stocking it at this price. We used to buy it locally for ~$7 a package.
* I absolutely LOVE this pasta! I'm trying to cut back on carbs and this is seriously helping me. I have been craving pasta like mad recently and so glad I stumbled upon this brand. So much better than shirataki noodles. I find that the flavor is very mild and with a well flavored sauce or toppings, nothing is overwhelmed. I think the key to the best results with this pasta is to really make sure they absorb as much water as possible. You really can't boil them to total mush, they just get a little softer, which I like because then the bite is similar to regular thin spaghetti.
* This stuff is really quite tasty, good texture, so easy to cook, and I've gotten positive reviews serving it to non-vegans, who feel like they're getting something "special." No apologies necessary. A great substitute for conventional pasta and it's now a staple in my kitchen.
* This stuff is really good. You can barely tell that it is not regular pasta. It takes on the flavor of the spaghetti sauce very well, but the texture is slightly different. I initially bought a bag so that I could try it; I just bought three more bags.
* Excellent product that cooks consistently well and doesn't fall apart. The taste is very pleasant and texture is better than quinoa pasta. It doesn't seem to retain heat very well though and chills quickly.
* 20 net carbs for an entire package--FANTASTIC! Made this with chicken alfredo for my family, told the kids it was "squid ink spaghetti" and they readily downed it with no complaints. Not equivalent to regular pasta in either taste or texture, but something different, entirely palatable, and will purchase again.
* I am giving this product a 5 on ingredients, but only a 1 on how much I like it. I was extremely disappointed in the texture after cooking. This product will not absorb anything put on it and although the taste isn't bad, the texture is just too weird for me. I will rate the other two pastas made by them, which are both better than the black bean one.
