There is a new line of organic gluten-free brown rice pasta on the market called Jovial. It was created in Italy by the same pasta maker of the Bionaturae line. The newly created line uses carefully selected varieties of rice and was developed for taste and texture first and gluten free second. According to the company, it is as close to traditional as gluten free can be. The pasta is also GFCO certified and Kosher.
I can attest that gluten-free pasta made in Italy has a completely different taste and texture that can be attributed to the water. Knowing that Jovial is created in Italy and uses rice grown in Italy, this line of gluten-free and organic brown rice pasta definitely has a 'leg up' on its competition.
Brown rice pasta has been readily available for those of us on the gluten-free diet for more than a decade, but his newly created line is dedicated to providing the highest quality and most delicious gluten‐free products that consumers can feel confident serving to their entire family.
