Gluten-Free Giveaway and Review: Jovial Brown Rice Pasta Line!

I was fortunate to have been given the opportunity to review Jovial™ Brown Rice Pasta. They are gluten-free and taste wonderful! I like the taste better than the leading gluten-free brand and find the texture comparable. It is not mealy at all! Jovial™ pasta is a product of Italy. Say no more, right? Unfortunately, you cannot stop me here!

There are only 2 ingredients in their pasta: organic brown rice flour and water, and it made in a gluten-free facility and is certified gluten-free through GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) of North America’s GFCO (Gluten Free Certification Organization) at under 10 ppm (parts per million) gluten.


I was spent their entire line of brown rice pasta:</>

  • Penne Rigate (the shape of penne, but with grooved lines)

  • Fusilli (spiral)

  • Casereece (a short curled pasta)

  • Capellini (angel hair pasta)

  • Spaghetti

Jovial™ is a great company!  They are allergy friendly.  Their products are made in a a dedicated facility free of gluten, casein, eggs, tree nuts and peanuts, however, their facility does process soy products.  I also appreciate that they use only organic ingredients.

Jovial™ Brown Rice pasta is packaged in a carton made from recycled cardboard and comes with an inner bag, for extra freshness, that is certified biodegradable and made from FSC (The Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood pulp.

I found that the penne rigate cooks very fast, about 6-8 minutes.

  1. I would love to be entered for a chance to win because as a new gluten free dieter finding things that taste good and that I like are very complicated, especially when the food is so much in such a hard time.

  2. I liked Gluten-Free Carla before this, that’s how I was informed of this giveaway. I shared the link on Facebook and commented on Carla’s pig in the blanket recipe (which I can’t wait to try). I don’t tweet so I’ve done all the ‘extras’ that I can. And my comment on entering is awaiting moderation. Thanks for your GF site – love to see so much new knowledge and awareness. :-)

  3. My son has celiac disease and we have been gluten-free since 2000 – I am always interested in new products and compared to the early days of our gluten-free living – products have become much more numerous and much better. I know that Europe is way ahead of the USA in producing and accomodating gluten free living.I am a single mom on a very tight budget and would love the chance to make an Italian GF pasta for my son & I. That is why I would love to be entered in this giveaway. Good luck to all.

  4. I love trying out new GF pastas so I would love to enter this drawing. I’ve already “liked” your GFCarla site… while I’ve found a number of them I’ve not found some of the shapes Jovial appears to have, particularly Cappelini!!! Angel hair pasta is one of my favorites for alfredo or pesto! Besides, winning would be a great birthday present! Thank you so much, Carla.

  5. I’d love to enter your contest. I haven’t heard of this GF pasta brand and am eager to try it, and find where I can buy it. I labored over homemade pasta the other day. Having to be GF makes a simple “soup-and-bread” dinner, between two choir engagements – become a whole-day event, if you make your own noodles that morning! Homemade IS great, but being able to buy good pasta – like everyone else – is a BLESSING. I tell good “normal” friends to count their blessings! (that they can eat anything they want) Well – good and safe GF foods that we can purchase are a blessing to us.

  6. It would be wonderful to enter this contest because my son loves pasta. I have tried a different ones and I don’t like them except for one. I would really like to try these gluten free pasta’s to see if my family would love them even better. I just wanted to also say how much I love your site.

  7. Hi! I’d LOVE to be entered! I’m all about exploring a ‘less-mealy’ (funny, btw) option of pasta AND since my son and I both have to be gluten-free, I’d love to have a supply in the house to feed this child who has a hard time staying ‘full’ on other gluten-free foods.

    Thanks so much for what you’re doing!

    I already ‘liked’ you on FB. And as soon as I locate my Twitter password, I’ll follow you there.

  8. I’m new to gluten-free (dairy, egg, beef free etc. etc.). Too many food allergies to count. Here’s my entry! I also liked your site on Facebook, and followed you on Twitter.

  9. Ooooh! I would love to be entered in this contest! I would love to try this pasta. I am always on the look-out for a better gluten free pasta.

  10. This type of pasta looks good. I’m a pasta lover, therefore I’m always on the hunt for trying different types of gluten free pasta. So I’d love to enter this giveaway for a chance the win and try this kind.

  11. I’m delighted to be introduced to Jovial brown rice pasta products! I’ve LIKED this page and Gluten Free Carla of Facebook, and SHARED this page on my Facebook Wall to help spread the word.
