selecting pasta and a grocery store


Flour made from Trusource™ wheat contains more than twice the amount of fiber than traditional wheat and gives consumers more dietary fiber without sacrificing taste. 


Trusource™ wheat contains more than double the amount of fiber compared to traditional wheat products. Studies show that half of consumers would switch to a pasta with double the amount of fiber than traditional pasta when sold at an equal price.1


Amylose is a non-digestible compound that acts as a prebiotic, feeding good gut bacteria and contributing to a healthy internal body system. Starches that contain more than 50% amylose are considered ‘high amylose.’ Trusource™ wheat contains high amylose starch which has a lower digestibility rate. Consumers seek foods with more nutritional benefits2, and due to the high amount of amylose, Trusource™ wheat may support improved blood sugar and gut health, an increase in satiety and a reduced inflammatory response.

Dietary Guidelines

Fiber is one of the most under consumed macronutrients in the adult diet. According to the National Institutes of Health, adults in North America should be consuming between 25 and 30 grams, or more, of fiber a day but only average around 17 grams per day. Additionally, a growing number of adults are following elimination diets such as “paleo,” “keto” and gluten-free diets which exclude fiber-rich whole grains.3

Studies have shown that a high fiber diet can help protect adults from developing chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, colorectal cancer and diverticular disease.3
