Why We Love It: We have searched long and hard for a gluten-free pasta that passes the flavor and texture test. Most turn mushy after cooking or taste completely bland. But Ancient Grains’ Supergrain pastas really taste like the real thing – no mushiness here! The pasta is mainly a combination of corn and quinoa flours, and aside from those, only contains three other vegetable ingredients. That’s it! The only reason we didn’t give it an overall rating of 5 is because it’s pretty high on the carb count, but hey, it is pasta…
Meet the Makers: Based in Boulder, CO, Ancient Harvest makes grains, flours, pastas, polentas and cereals based on ancient grains such as quinoa, millet and amaranth, and corn.

Fun Fact: Ancient Harvest was the first company to bring quinoa into the US when they walked the very first bag of Bolivian quinoa into a Boulder food store.
