Product Review: DeBoles Corn Spaghetti Style Pasta- gluten free

Posted on | May 22, 2008 | 3 Comments

This DeBoles gluten free corn spaghetti style pasta comes in an eight ounce box has three to four servings. This pasta was given to me by a friend to try. Honestly, I was a bit hesistant since I have not had good experiences with corn pasta in the past.
I boiled these gluten free spaghetti noodles for nine minutes, which seemed about right. The noodles were cooked slightly softer than al dente with no issues of stickiness or clumping. These are a thinner style noodles- not overly thick. Maybe they wouldn’t be so bad after all!
I served these noodles with a simple marinara topped with parmesan. These gluten free spaghetti noodles have a moderate corn flavor that somewhat competed with the tomato sauce. The taste wasn’t horrible but it wasn’t really great either. i think I prefer the flavor and texture brown rice noodles instead of corn.
I quickly discovered that these noodles are pretty inflexible- when I tried to twirl the noodles on my fork, they broke into small pieces. Yup, that’s right, these gluten free spaghetti did not pass the twirl test. Lame.
I also discovered that these noodles are best eaten right away since they become sticky and clumped in the fridge. Overall, these noodles were Ok, but they weren’t my favorite.
PROS: slightly chewy, doesn’t stick together
CONS: inflexible and breaks; corn flavor may compete with the flavor of sauce
Rating: 3 stars

    The trick to this pasta is to cook it in A LOT of water – both the rice and corn pasta are very high in starch. This is what causes the stickiness. For one 8 oz. box use about 1.5 to 2 gallons of water.

    I have had problems with this pasta though from a gluten standpoint so I don’t know that their process is not somehow contaminated.

    Thanks for this review I have wondered about this gluten free spaghetti noodles since I to have tried different noodles. My son really likes pasta and so if I don’t find one he likes he won’t eat it. Recently I have tried
    Tinkyada Spaghetti Brown Rice Pasta I liked it alright.I noticed it didn’t stick together as much as some of the other pasta.
