I've called this Christmas Pasta Salad because of the red and green pasta spirals.  The Orgran Vegetable Rice Pasta Spirals contain 99% brown rice and 1% vegetables (beetroot and spinach).  Beetroot is moderate in salicylates and spinach is very high in amines, salicylates and glutamates, however based on the small percentage of spinach contained I think the overall level would be moderate.   If this isn't tolerated you can use any other pasta.
