BSU’s Squash Noodles


Earlier, when we came across news reports that a noodle factory will be built in Benguet to produce vegetable noodles, we wondered how vegetables — particularly the green, leafy ones — can be turned into noodles. Well, the folks at Benguet State University proved that you can make noodles out of squash as you can see in this Inquirer interview with Dr. Violeta Salda of BSU’s Vegetable Processing Center. I suppose this is a good project because it opens a market for squash farmers.

  2. I can barely hear the interview with all the noise in the background, esp. whoever the speaker is on the mic. hehe.

    I’ve also seen some whole wheat spaghetti noodles around now. They’re supposed to be healthier than regular noodles.

  3. Great innovation! Flavored noodles are very good and healthy for you. We’ve had some that are made with spinach and carrots but haven’t tasted one with squash yet. I am curious to know what it tastes like. How great that it’s produced in Benguet!
