Which of these foods takes the longest to spoil cashew pasta crackers or honey?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Honey typically takes the longest to spoil out of the three options you listed (cashew, pasta, honey). Honey has a very long shelf life due to its low water content and natural acidity, making it resistant to spoilage. On the other hand, cashews and pasta have a higher moisture content and are more prone to spoilage compared to honey.

How many grams is one cup of pasta?

Asked by Wiki User

What kind of pasta? Pasta comes ib a lot of different shapes, and if you compare one-pound boxes of dry pasta at the supermarket, you'll see that the sizes varies a lot.

Big shells have a lot of air in them. Spaghetti or spaghettini are almost pure pasta, with no air. Of course, when you cook it, it swells up and gets limp, and you can't pack it as tightly as a bundle of dried spaghetti.

Pasta is made from wheat flour, especially semolina (durum hard wheat flour.) This is an annual wheat grown on the great plains. Annual wheats have a lot of gluten in them, and they are also used for bread flour. In the great lakes area, soft wheat is planted in August, dies down in the winter, and comes up for the second year in the spring, being ready for harvest about June. The flour from biannual wheat has little gluten in it, so it's a great flour for cakes and cookies that you don't want to get "tough".

Noodles are made from eggs and flour, and are NOT pasta. Pasta is made by wetting semolina, forming it into the shape you want, and letting it dry. If you make spirals, that's 21 pounds per cubic foot. Spaghetti runs about 49 pounds per cubic feet.

There are 453.592 grams per pound. There are 1915.01 tbsp per cubic feet. You'd multiply the 21-39 number by 453.592/1915.01 which is 0.23686142631. All those digits to the right don't matter, Only the two digits to the leftmost mean anything.

Multiplying by 21, you get 4.97-something, which is 5.0 grams per tablespoon to two significant figures. Multiplying by 49, you get 11.60-something, which is 12, to two significant figures.

If its cooked pasta, it will depend on how much salt was in the water, if you cooked it in broth instead of water, how long it continued to sit in the water after hitting the al dente stage. But it will lighter cooked than dry. Toss some short dry spaghetti in with cooking spaghetti, and it quickly finds its way to the bottom.

If this is homework for your science class, tell your teacher than you cooked some spaghetti and tried to measure out a tablespoon full, but it was so limp

that it just slithered out and onto the floor, so the answer is that there is NO grams of pasta in a tablespoon, because a tablespoon isn't able to hold it.

Can dogs eat cooked pasta?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Increases your dog's carbs loading. We're talking fully cooked pasta. Do not feed uncooked pasta as it expands in the stomach just as for humans and don't feed regularly or in any sizable quantity.

Dogs have allergies too and pasta is made from cereal grains. Even so, a couple of bites probably isn't going to hurt them. If they react negatively, call your Vet. Mine love a little spaghetti or chicken and noodles with their kibble.

Keep in mind that you're also increasing their food intake and too much of good thing can cause weight increase.
