Melissa's Hearts of Palm Pasta

Los Angeles, California (2023) – Encased inside the center core of the palm tree is a versatile vegetable packed with nutrients. Hearts of Palm have recently enjoyed some well-deserved popularity for their delicious flavor and distinct texture. Melissa’s now offers this healthy vegetable in pasta form as a great substitute for flour-based noodles.

High in fiber and a good source of protein with a low glycemic index and even lower glycemic load, Hearts of Palm make a welcome addition to both vegan diets and low-carb diets. Their taste is often compared to artichokes with a light, mild flavor and slightly crunchy texture. They look similar to white asparagus in their whole state, then cut noodle-size and length that look just like the real thing without the carbs or calories associated with pasta noodles.

NOTE: Harvesting hearts of palm has led to massive deforestation, so harvesting hearts from single-stemmed wild palms has been outlawed. Today, most hearts of palm are cultivated from multi-stemmed palms and harvested in a sustainable, environmentally friendly practices.
