KANSAS CITY, Mo., June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Combining the great taste of traditional pasta with the added benefits of whole grains and fiber, American Italian Pasta Company (OTC: AITP), the largest producer of dry pasta in North America, has expanded its better-for-you pasta offerings with the introduction of Heartland(R) Perfect Balance pasta.

natural ingredients and 100% whole grain durum wheat, Heartland Whole

Wheat provides the health benefits whole wheat pasta lovers look for and

pasta is also a good source of protein and fiber, providing a product

that is heart healthy and rich in antioxidants.
