So a bit of background on this pasta created by Brian Rudolph. Brian grew like most kids, eating chicken nuggets and bagels. Later in life, he started to experience some health issues, including sinus issues. He decided to focus on how the foods he ate made him feel, and chose to eliminate gluten from his diet. When he did remove gluten, he noticed that his health improved. Now he stays up late reading food science books thinking about the next food innovation that can combine health and great taste. Stay tuned for a new product launch this summer that kids are sure to love!
