What Durum Wheat and why is it used in the fresh pasta range?

Durum wheat is a variety of wheat that is well-suited for making pasta due to its high protein content and gluten strength. The endosperm of durum wheat is hard, which makes it possible to produce a flour with a high protein content that can withstand the kneading and rolling required to make pasta without breaking apart.

In our fresh pasta range, we use durum wheat semolina flour to make our pasta dough. This allows us to produce a pasta that is firm and holds its shape well when cooked, while also providing a delicious taste and texture.

Using durum wheat in our fresh pasta range is important to us because we believe in using high-quality, natural ingredients that are not only delicious but also provide health benefits. Durum wheat is a great source of nutrients such as protein, fiber, and minerals, making it a healthy choice for those who enjoy pasta.

We take pride in our fresh pasta range and are committed to using only the best ingredients to produce delicious, high-quality pasta that our customers can enjoy with their favorite sauces and toppings.
