Like other premium pastas, Dreamfields is made from durum wheat semolina, which is why it tastes the same as other pastas. However, Dreamfields' patent pending formula and unique manufacturing process creates a matrix within the pasta, protecting 31 grams of carbohydrates from being digested. The fiber and protein blend in the Dreamfields pasta creates a protective barrier to reduce starch digestion.
Dreamfields' "digestible carbohydrates" are determined by a clinical method that measures the blood glucose response of the whole food to establish its content of digestible carbohydrates or glycemic load. This is unlike net carbohydrates, which is simply determined by estimating the digestibility of individual food components (e.g. subtracting fiber from total carbohydrates). The clinical testing is conducted at an independent clinical laboratory. Many people with diabetes who consult with a registered dietician use a food's Glycemic Index (GI) and Glycemic Load (GL) as tools to help manage their daily food intake and blood glucose levels.
