Where it all began

It all started with a question - why isn't there a healthier, great-tasting, gluten-free pasta?

With this in mind Nick bought a pasta press and took over his mum's kitchen, convinced he could develop a pasta that worked harder to keep you healthy. His recipe experiments led him to chickpeas as the main ingredient; they are naturally packed with plant based protein, high in healthy fibre and lower in carbohydrates than wheat used in traditional pasta. All of this means a gluten-free pasta that packs a nutritional punch, keeps you fuller for longer and doesn't leave you feeling bloated. 

After countless varieties and with the pasta press on it's last legs, Root One was born! 

We've moved on from his mum's kitchen but our mission remains the same: update the foods you know and love to make them healthier without losing their great taste.

About Nick: 

Nick has always been passionate about food and nutrition and is currently studying for his MSc in Global Public Health Nutrition at the University of Westminster in London.

In his spare time you'll find him in the kitchen working on recipes for Root One or out with friends doing his favourite activity: eating great food with great company!
