BAM Snacks has released another new product featuring the amazing superfood black gram. Get ready to experience pasta in a way that you’ve never imagined!
What Makes BAM Pasta Special?
This certainly isn’t your average rotini pasta! BAM Pasta has one single ingredient; black gram. The humble lentil that has been used medicinally for thousands of years in India is now becoming a notable food in America as well, as the first ever black gram products are now available for purchase!
Now, if you’re already familiar with this legume, you’ll understand what the amazing implications are; but if you’re among the large percentage of the populace who have yet to be introduced to black gram (Vigna mungo L.), let us give you a rundown on all of its impressive qualities in the form of pasta!
Breaking Down the Facts
BAM Pasta can almost qualify as being revolutionary, in the way that it transforms the traditional view of this popular Italian food. What was once tolerated as simply the substantive high-carb carrier of a nutritious sauce has become in itself highly beneficial and healthy. Let’s look at the contrast between typical wheat pasta and BAM Pasta made with black gram.
Regular pasta is known for being comprised primarily of empty carbs and little else. When wheat and other grain products are refined, most of the nutrition is removed, leaving sugars and starch. This decreases the body’s ability to feel full, and the grain is digested rapidly, resulting in a host of potential health problems ranging from diabetes to heart disease.
Sometimes to make up for what is lost in the refining process, manufacturers will add synthetic vitamins to their grain; while this may be helpful to some degree, studies have shown that natural vitamins are absorbed more easily by the body than the inferior synthetic versions; in other words, it’s better to get your vitamins and minerals directly from a natural food source.
Highly processed wheat fused with other hard-to-pronounce ingredients has dominated the pasta industry for far too long, and it’s time for a change.
When BAM Snacks created a pasta made entirely out of black gram, it introduced an option that has 30% more protein and 3x more fiber than other brands, and all that with 1/2 the carbs! It’s a difference you can taste and feel.
Protein is one of the most important nutrients needed in our diet, and black gram is a great way to supply it. BAM Pasta contains 9 g of protein per serving, making it a good choice for vegetarians and vegans too!
Guess what? BAM Pasta has even more dietary fiber than whole wheat pasta! Not that it’s surprising… black gram has more fiber than most of the foods in the world. But if you’re wanting to keep your fiber intake up, then this is the pasta for you! We’re talking about 9 g per serving; that’s right.
Carbs have a bad reputation, but they aren’t always a threat. When carbohydrates are made up of fiber and paired with quality protein, they provide long-lasting energy that won’t cause blood-sugar spikes, or sudden onsets of fatigue. BAM Pasta provides a manageable 19 g of carbs to supply the energy you need; quite a difference from the excessive 42 g of empty carbs found in typical pasta.
Black gram is also a great source of other important minerals like potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, and more. We don’t believe in stripping foods of their nutrients, so we’ve chosen minimal processing in order to deliver a superior product.
In other words, pasta has never been so healthy!
Maybe you’re searching for a new gluten-free pasta to add to your meal time? BAM Pasta might be just what you’re looking for! As a legume, black gram is naturally free of any gluten, and it is a very nutritious choice for those who choose to go gluten-free, because it contains several important nutrients that are often lacking in modern gluten-free diets; nutrients like folate, iron, magnesium, and zinc.
Compared to other popular brands of gluten-free pasta that contain very small amounts of protein, iron, and fiber, BAM pasta provides significantly higher numbers. Check it out!

Another downfall of many other gluten-free pasta products is the amount of processing they go through. As it has already been mentioned, BAM Snacks has chosen to keep the process simple with BAM Pasta in order to retain as many nutrients and dietary benefits as possible. The result is a rotini that allows you to guiltlessly indulge in your favorite pasta dishes while feeding your body exactly what it needs!
While all preservatives and additives are not necessarily bad for you, some definitely are. A few common preservatives, such as sodium dehydroacetate, are considered safe in low doses, but not in excessive amounts. Our question is, why have them at all when you can create a delicious all-natural product that keeps on the shelf for a reasonable amount of time without the use of potentially harmful chemicals?
BAM Pasta is entirely free from any additives and preservatives! BAM Snacks kept things simple and healthy by using only one ingredient (black gram) to provide you with a safe and healthy option.
