Saratoga Farms Instant Rotini Noodles are amazing. Similar to a sponge, these instant rotini noodles grow exponentially when water is added. A serving of this spiral pasta is 3/4 of a cup dry but after steeping in 10 minutes of hot water you have over 1 3/4 cup of noodles! Due to the noodles ability to grow and expand with water you are essentially taking a 5 gallon bucket with approximately 80 cups and after reconstituting getting 187 cups! Talk about a space saver. 107 three quarter cup servings per bucket turns into 187 cups of noodles! Also, each Saratoga Farms ValueBUCKET has a mylar bag & oxygen absorbers sealed inside. This keeps light and moisture out so your food stays good for a long, long time and since the mylar bag keeps the aroma inside, rodents wont be coming for a meal. All Saratoga Farms dehydrated and freeze dried products have a great reputation of being long-lasting, packed with nutrients, and great-tasting - and Instant Rotini Noodles are no exception! With high percentages fiber, carbohydrates and calories; Instant Rotini Noodle will make a healthy, versatile addition to your food storage!
