While I was eating some spiral-shaped pasta noodles I discovered that all the noodles were right handed. The noodles were like the second set shown here. Are all spiral noodles right handed? If so, why?
(By “right-handed” I mean the spiral goes the same direction as a normal screw)
I’ve been told that these are produced with extrusion dies. That would make it very likely that all noodles from one company twist the same way. And it wouldn’t be too surprising if all companies conform to a right-hand rule.
It would, of course, be easy enough to do it the other way. Could you get consumers to pay enough attention that this would be a selling point? Doubtful, I’d say.
