Is it time to re­ha­bil­i­tate the riga­toni? The science says yes. While mod­ern diet dogma has it that white pasta cre­ates too great a blood sugar spike for any­thing but a pre-marathon carb-load, help is at hand in the form of your mi­crowave. Ac­cord­ing to re­cent re­search, cooled­down pasta cre­ates a slightly smaller blood sugar surge be­cause it’s

more re­sis­tant to the gut en­zymes that break carbs down. And it doesn’t end there: a re­cent study car­ried out for the BBC’s Trust Me I’m A Doc­tor found that if you eat re­heated pasta, the body treats it like fi­bre, re­duc­ing the blood glu­cose spike by up to 50% and even

ab­sorb­ing fewer calo­ries. Sadly, re­heated pizza re­mains a no-no.
