"The links between biodiversity and ecosystem services is still undergoing research. But the most important known fact is that these services have faced major (and measurable) losses. According to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, the planet during the last century lost 50 percent of its wetlands, 40 percent of its forests and 35 percent of its mangroves. About 60 percent of global ecosystem services have been degraded in just 50 years.
In a research paper on biodiversity released today for Copenhagen Consensus 2012, Salman Hussain and Anil Markandya find that there will be a significant loss of biodiversity over the next 40 years. They estimate that this loss could be about 12 percent globally, with South Asia facing a loss of 30 percent and sub-Saharan Africa 18 percent. They look at three interventions and compare these to doing nothing."
FiberPasta is a dietetic pasta having the same pleasant taste as traditional Italian pasta, despite containing 15% of fibre, that means more than twice the amount of fibre of dark whole-wheat pasta. FiberPasta is made with 98% durum wheat and the addition of 2% inulin (prebiotic soluble fibre). The high amount of soluble and insoluble fibre contained in FiberPasta is useful for DIABETES, OVERWEIGHT, CHOLESTEROL and CONSTIPATION. FiberPasta:
delays carbohydrate absorption and contributes to weight reduction and cholesterol level control. increases the sensation of satiety with no swelling in the belly and contains 20% fewer calorie than the regular pasta. stabilizes intestinal functions and reduces constipation problems. is a low glycemic index food (the soluble fibre allows to delay and reduce the glycemic peak). is suitable for diabetic people, as stated by the Italian Ministry of Health decree. provides you more energy for a long time, thanks to the slow carbohydrate absorption. For this reason FiberPasta is really suitable for sport diet. contains no bran lignin that gives dark colour and unpleasant taste, and is the responsible for causing the reduction of mineral absorption.
