Why Carbe Diem?

We exist to give you the freedom to enjoy the foods you love again, because we believe it's possible to both love the food you eat and feel good about your choices. Seize the day, friends! Regain the feeling of freedom to love the foods you love without guilt by reducing net carbs and calories with zero taste or texture trade-offs.

What's different about this pasta?

Carbe Diem is a 100% wheat-based pasta, just like traditional pasta, which is why our taste and texture are so spot on. How are we different? Wheat can be separated into its individual parts when milled. This gives us the ability to add back more of the protein in the form of vital wheat gluten, and more fiber through the addition of modified wheat starch. This reduces both the net carbs and calories at the same time. Modified wheat starch is also known as resistant wheat starch, and is recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a dietary fiber.

Why just five shapes?

Do you have gluten-free pasta?

What are "net carbs?"

Not all carbs are created equal. We look at net carbs to help people understand the number of carbohydrates that will actually be metabolized by the body. Simply put, the net carbs are the total amount of carbohydrates, minus the fiber and the sugar alcohols. This gives you the number of carbohydrates that your body will absorb. This is useful in understanding both the number of carbohydrates and calories your body will metabolize.
