Jovial Gluten Free Pasta and Cookies Review and Giveaway

Jovaial Foods sent me some more of their gluten free pasta and cookies. It is one of my favorite brown rice pastas and my husband loves their cookies, as well. Food & Wine chose Jovial pasta as the best brown rice pasta. You really should learn more about them if you are not already familiar with their products. They have changed a few ingredients in their cookies, which I think you will appreciate. Meanwhile, three lucky winners will receive a gift certificate for Good luck!

Jovial Fig Fruit Filled Cookies

If you are looking for a cookie to replace Fig Newtons, Jovial‚Äôs Fig Fruit Filled Cookies are a wonderful substitute. They are a bit lighter and softer than Fig Newton‚Äôs but definitely fulfill the craving. If you’re not a fig fan, you may enjoy their other flavors of fruit filled gluten free cookies: Chocolate Vanilla Cream and Chocolate Chocolate Cream.

Ingredients: Organic Figs, Organic Rice Flour, Sugar, Organic Potato Starch, Organic Palm Fruit Oil, Organic Rice Starch, Organic Rice Syrup, Organic Eggs, Organic Chickpea Flour,  Organic Arabic Gum, Leavening (Monocalcium Phosphate, Baking Soda), Salt, Pectin, Citric Acid, Guar Gum.

Jovial Gluten Free Lasagna Noodles

Their lasagna noodles are made from simple ingredients, as are their most of their pasta. They contain only organic brown rice flour and water. It’s amazing how they make such a great texture pasta from brown rice alone. They must use flour not available to consumers, but only to manufacturers. There are different qualities and varieties of rice flour. They each have specific uses. Some are finer, starchier, etc.

Ingredients:  Organic Brown Rice Flour, Water. May contain traces of soy and eggs.

Jovial Gluten Free Egg Tagliatelle

Jovial offers a brown rice tagliatelle made with egg. While I enjoy all of Jovial’s brown rice pastas, the egg tagliatelle is out of this world delicious! It has so much more flavor than their plain brown rice pasta. It does not taste like egg noodles, though. It taste like really great pasta Рclose to the real thing. With the added protein from the egg, I like knowing I am not just eating starch or rice.

Ingredients: Organic Brown Rice Flour, Organic Eggs. Contains Eggs. May contain traces of soy.

I started eating GF in the last year because of a suspected gluten-intolerance impacting several health issues and it has made a huge difference.

I would love to try some of their other GF products especially the tagliatelle made with egg.
