Hodgson Mill Gluten Free All-Natural Brown Rice Pastas

These delicious and versatile pastas are a great way to get more whole grains into your gluten-free diet. Not only are they free of gluten, wheat, dairy, and eggs, they’re also made with golden milled flaxseed, which is rich in important omega-3 essential fatty acids. All Hodgson Mill pastas are produced in a strictly maintained gluten-free facility and are tested using the ELISA Gluten Assay test to ensure the highest quality. As a bonus, each variety has a gluten-free recipe printed on the back of the box-the Creamy Macaroni Bake recipe is a healthful, yet decadent example. Choose from five varieties: Elbow, Penne, Spaghetti, Angel Hair, or Linguine.
