Question:

From Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA:

What is the difference between semolina pasta and regular pasta? Is it really healthier? I checked the labels on both the regular pasta and semolina pasta and they were the same. What is the best pasta if you have to cut out sugar?

Answer:

Semolina refers to the hard wheat that is used to make the pasta. The texture of the products may differ depending on the wheat used to make it. Unless a pasta is made out of whole wheat or a vegetable the nutritive value is about the same. Pasta is a starch, so it does not have sugar in it. Sometimes pasta sauces have sugar added. Look on the label of prepared pasta sauce to see how much sugar is used.
