Following a successful trial in 2015, Leaves PastaMagic is hitting shelves across Ireland. This Irish company’s world first range of flavoured pasta is made with only two ingredients — buckwheat and chickpea.
This scrumptious gourmet pasta cooks in just five minutes. PastaMagic is naturally high in protein (more than in two sausages ) and in fibre (it is one of your five veg a day ). One serving represents a full and balanced meal without the necessity of a sauce.
Equally interesting are the couple behind PastaMagic, Sabine Hobbel, a Dutch elite athlete and health researcher, and her husband Nico Olivieri, an Italian chef. This young couple discovered a shared love of food, fitness, and nutrition. They moved to Ireland and set up Leaves, a natural food company focused on the creation of products that stimulate the senses and nourish the body.
Leaves won Best Irish Food & Drink Startup of the year 2015 at the prestigious Bank of Ireland Startup Awards; Leaves PastaMagic was runner-up in the Product of the Show Award by Speciality Fine Food Fair Ireland; Sabine Hobbel won Best Female Entrepreneur 2014 awarded by the Local Enterprise Office Dublin City; and Nico Olivieri was also a finalist as Irish Best Young Entrepreneur 2014 for Dublin city.
Whether you are an athlete, fitness enthusiast, healthy eater, or simply a parent trying to ensure your children get the best of nutrients at every meal, PastaMagic is a convenient way to enjoy a healthy, delicious, high protein, meal in just five minutes.
