The Three Farm Daughters line includes artisan linguine pasta, fusilli pasta, fettuccine pasta and 100% wheat flour. The products will be available online on November 12 and at Hugo's Family Marketplace in North Dakota and Minnesota.
Earlier this year, Arcadia and Three Farm Daughters announced a strategic partnership to bring GoodWheat-enhanced nutritional attributes to market in an effort to fill a fiber and nutrition gap in many American's diets, the company said. Only 5% of people in the US meet the Institute of Medicine's recommended daily fiber target of 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men, Arcadia noted.

GoodWheat specialty wheat ingredients contain up to nine times the dietary fiber, up to 50% less gluten and nearly 30% fewer calories per serving than traditional wheat products.
"Consumers are increasingly looking for clean labels and nutritionally-dense versions of their favorite foods for themselves and their families," Arcadia VP of Commercial Operations Kevin Hodges said in a statement. "Wheat flour — which is often used in family favorite foods like pasta and baked goods — is frequently seen as unhealthy, but alternative flours made with almonds, chickpeas or rice can compromise on taste and texture. ... We saw a need in the market to create healthier, wheat-based products that are also delicious. We look forward to sharing these new pastas and flour products to consumers around the world through the Three Farm Daughters brand."
The new Three Farm Daughters products are grown, milled and packaged in the US. The pasta varieties offer 9 grams more fiber per 2-ounce serving than traditional pasta, 9 grams of protein per serving and are only 150 calories per serving.
"We are moms, wives and farmers and good health has taken on a new importance for us as we feed our kids," Three Farm Daughters cofounder Grace Lunski said. "Our vision is to create everyday food staples that families can trust and bring nutritious products straight from the farm to family kitchens, especially as more cooking is being done at home."
Families have been cooking more at home during the coronavirus pandemic, the company noted, and shelf-stable pantry categories are experiencing +19% growth compared to 2019.
