Better in what respect? In terms of weight loss, neither is great. It is a bulk building food, so great for muscle growth and children growing, not a fat loss food at all due to the severe carb load of it. It is a processed, high calorie food. If you have gluten sensitivity or Coeliac disease, then of course it is not ok to eat gluten pasta etc otherwise, it is fine in moderation and as part of a healthy lifestyle.
