USA: To meet growing consumer preference for low carbohydrate diet foods, Keto introduces the World's first low carb pasta
According to National Institute of Health statistics, more than half the U.S. population is overweight. Now increasing numbers of physicians and researchers are blaming high carbohydrate, low fat diets (which emphasize grains and starchy vegetables), for the epidemic of obesity and Type II Diabetes. Over the past year, 5 best- selling low carb diet books and widespread media reports are promoting the health benefits of reduced carbohydrate/high protein diets. Based upon the popularity of the Atkins, Protein Power, Zone and Sugar Buster's diets, experts believe that more than 25 million Americans are now following some form of low carb/high protein diet.To meet growing consumer demand, Life Services Supplements,Inc. of Neptune, NJ has developed the world's first low carbohydrate pasta, which is offered under its Keto brand. With more than 50 low carb product offerings, Keto is the largest and fastest growing line of low carbohydrate/high protein foods and snacks. According to Life Services CEO Arne Bey, "More than half of America eats pasta each week. It's one of the most popular foods! But pasta is very high in fattening carbohydrates." According to the United States Department of Agriculture, a 2 oz. serving of spaghetti contains 42 grams of carbohydrates. That amount is equivalent to 8 teaspoons of sugar! The company states Keto Pasta contains just 4 grams of carbohydrates and is rich in 24 grams of appetite satisfying protein from GMO-free soy.Life Services, which is at the forefront of producing a new generation of low carbohydrate/high protein foods says their Keto Pasta Shells have nearly the same flavor, aroma and soft texture of the traditional but fattening counterparts.
