100% wholemeal spelt pasta
Spelt is the ancient grain at the helm of the grain family which has been a prime source of nutrition for humanity over the centuries. The most ancient tales of spelt harvesting go back to 7000 BC and confirm its presence during man’s very first agricultural experiences.
Triticum dicoccum has vanished from the modern agricultural scene because it has been replaced with grains that are mass-produced.
Our cooperative company has restored the value of this grain in recent years, and has since cultivated it employing organic agricultural methods. Hybrids and selections that have modified other grains and cereals have not affected spelt, which comes to our dinner table untouched by the passing of time. Using stone-ground wheat flours to make whole-wheat spelt pasta permits the retention of all the nutritional benefits of this staple:
• Rich in vitamins (A,B,C,E)
• Rich in minerals (iron, calcium)
• Rich in vegetable fibres (cellulose, hemi cellulose, and lignin) and bran.
With a 100% spelt flour we do produce both a wholemeal spelt pasta and a semi-wholemeal spelt pasta in different cuts.
