Macaroni: calories, carbs, fats and other nutrients


Pasta is low in calories – 190 calories per 50 grams of dry product. What is particularly interesting (and contrary to common belief) is that pasta contains the right amount of protein – 13 g per 100 g of product, which contributes to weight loss, because at their consumption “melts” fat, not muscle tissue. In addition, the nutritional value of pasta is also determined by the starch they contain (70%), which is very well digested. A dish made with 100 g of pasta provides 10% of our daily requirement of proteins and carbohydrates. Pasta also contains so-called slow sugars, which are burned almost completely, but gradually. Experts say that these sugars are the best “fuel” for athletes: they replenish glycogen reserves in muscles.
