Barilla Italian Entrees Meat Sauce Gemelli pasta has many ingredients like white wine, tomato, meat, gemelli pasta and many more. One healthy ingredient in this Italian meal is lactic acid.
Lactic acid is used as a pH regulator, preservative, and sometimes for taste. Lactic acid is used a lot in foods. Lactic acid naturally occurs in bacterial fermentation which means the breaking down of substances. According to a study conducted in Denmark in 1999, lactic acid is good for intestinal problems, especially in children.
Unfortunately, Meat Sauce Gemelli pasta also contains 24% of the sodium you should eat every day! That’s a lot, and sodium is not good for you. Sodium is salt and having too much sodium is bad because it gives you high blood pressure. In a study done in 2011 at the University of Texas, researchers Morrison and Ness concluded that by lowering your sodium consumption it reduces the risk of heart disease. I advise to balance this meal with something healthy and low in sodium and not to eat this meal too often.
In all, Meat Sauce Gemelli pasta has 20% of the carbohydrates you should eat every day. It depends what type of carbohydrates you have. Some are good for you and others are not. One good type of carbohydrate is fiber, which helps your intestines. Fortunately, Barilla Meat Sauce Gemelli has 24% of daily fiber! That’s good!
