Lower Carb Bean Pastas -- A Review

Soybean, Black Bean, Mung Bean
Bean Pastas -- A Review

Soybean Spaghetti, Black Bean Spaghetti, and Mung Bean Fettucini

All Cooked

And the Red Aduki/Azuki Bean Spaghetti

These are a semi-new wheat flour and konjac free alternative pasta line made by the company 
They are GlutenFree, Vegan, GMO Free, Organic, Kosher.
They are high in protein and fiber, and low in net carbs.
While not calorie free or carb free (1 serving has 5 carbs and 180 calories) they are an excellent choice for people wanting a more "real pasta like" texture and taste and who are tired of the rubberiness of those Shirataki noodles.
I did not like the Mung Bean Fettucini AT ALL. Too Beany.
The Black Bean were slightly better, but still too "BEANY"
I enjoyed the Soybean and Red Azuki Bean pastas the beast and I might thaw out a bag of my Pho Broth and buy some Holy Basil and beef and have a big bowl of Pho with those Soybean Noodles in the coming week.

The Soy Noodles have 162 cals and 5 g carbs per serving.
