I'm not stupid, I have just heard some people say it is a slow digesting carb. Is it?

it doesn't use white flour, it's some other kind that isn't so bad. it's fine to eat. whole wheat pasta is nasty anyway

its a refined white carb, so no its fast digesting. try whole wheat pasta, its delicious and much better for you imo.

The ONLY difference is a few grams of fiber. If you are getting fiber elsewhere then you will be fine. Also assuming you aren't eating it alone after fasting for a while, it won't be a problem that it is "refined".

I was under the impression that enriched flour was bad for you? I could be wrong. I eat both varieties though, but I thought that was why white is nutritionally devoid? I could be wrong though.

There isn't a whole lot of nutrients in either. Enriched flour can have more sometimes actually due to added nutrients. The whole wheat really only has more fiber.
