Rice and corn pasta: properties, uses and tips

The nutritional properties of rice and corn pasta

Rice and corn pasta combines the nutritional properties of these two grains in a gluten-free product suitable for those with intolerances or simply wanting to vary their diet. Here are some of the main nutritional characteristics of this type of pasta:

(a) Low-fat: Both rice and corn are naturally low in fat, making pasta with rice and cornmeal a light option suitable for those on a low-calorie or low-fat diet.

(b) Source of carbohydrates: pasta with rice and corn is a good source of carbohydrates, the main energy for our body. The carbohydrates in these grains are predominantly complex, which means they are absorbed slowly, avoiding glycemic spikes and providing consistent energy over time.

(c) Fiber: corn pasta contains a good amount of fiber, which is useful for aiding digestion and satiety. Rice pasta, on the other hand, is generally less high in fiber, but this makes it more digestible for those with gastrointestinal problems.

(e) Minerals and vitamins: both rice and corn contain various minerals and vitamins, including potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, B vitamins, and vitamin E. The presence of these micronutrients contributes to making pasta with rice and cornmeal a nutritious and balanced food.

(f) Gluten-free: the main characteristic of pasta with rice and corn is the absence of gluten, a protein found in grains such as wheat, barley and rye. This makes it suitable for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, but also for those who wish to reduce the consumption of gluten in their diet.

Rice and corn pasta is a nutritious and versatile alternative to wheat pasta, with interesting nutritional properties and suitable for different dietary needs.

Seafood: shrimp, mussels, clams, and squid can be used to create flavorful and light sauces that enhance the taste of rice and corn pasta.

Cooking tips for rice and corn pasta

Cooking rice and corn pasta can be slightly different from cooking traditional wheat pasta, but by following a few simple tips you can achieve an optimal result:

Plenty of water: use a generous amount of water to cook the pasta, at least one liter of water for every 100 grams of pasta. This allows the pasta to cook evenly and not stick.

Salt: add salt to the cooking water only when it starts to boil. The amount of salt depends on personal taste, but generally about 10-15 grams of salt per liter of water is recommended.

Do not add oil: unlike wheat pasta, for rice and corn pasta it is not necessary to add oil to the cooking water, as it tends not to stick between pieces.

Cooking times: cooking times for pasta with rice and cornmeal may vary depending on the type of pasta and the proportion of rice to corn. It is important to read the directions on the package and check the pasta during cooking to make sure it reaches the desired consistency. In general, pasta with rice and corn cooks faster than wheat pasta.

Stir gently: while cooking, stir the pasta gently to prevent it from breaking or sticking to the bottom of the pot. Use a wooden spoon or long fork to do this carefully.

Drain well: once the desired cooking time has been reached, drain the pasta using a colander. Be sure to wipe off all excess water to prevent the pasta from becoming too sticky.

Cool immediately: if the pasta with rice and cornmeal will be used to make a cold dish or pasta salad, cool it immediately after cooking by rinsing it with cold water. This will stop the cooking process and keep the pasta al dente.

Season immediately: to prevent pasta with rice and corn from sticking between pieces after cooking, it is important to season it immediately with the desired sauce or oil.

By following these tips, cooking rice and corn pasta will be easy and the result will be delicious gluten-free pasta with the perfect texture.
