When you visit your local grocer, you'll probably see an array of pastas in different shapes, sizes and textures. In that section, you'll also see a different type of pasta: the egg noodle.
Egg noodles and regular pasta are made from durum wheat. The difference is that egg noodles contain at least 5.5 per cent egg.
A one-half cup serving of cooked pasta and cooked egg noodles contain the same number of calories and protein, which is around 110 calories and 4g of protein per serving.
A slight difference in the number of carbohydrates in the duelling pastas exists. Regular noodles (21g) have one more gram of carbohydrate per serving than egg noodles (20g).
Egg noodles contain 23 mg of cholesterol per serving. Pasta, on the other hand, has no cholesterol, due to the absence of animal products.
Egg noodles contain slightly more B vitamins, such as folic acid (62mcg versus 46mcg), niacin (1.66 mg versus 1.18 mg) and thiamine (.23 mg versus .19 mg) than regular pasta.
