We produce our whole wheat line pasta only using the durum wheat that we grow and harvest every year in the fields surrounding our pasta factory, following the Good Agricultural Pratices. Semolina and water are the only two ingredients. The milling process here preserves every element of the wheat: the germ, the endosperm and the bran. This results in a higher content of fibre and minerals. We use circular bronze dies to shape our pasta and then we dry it at temperatures below 44°C. It takes 23 hours for our two short pasta cuts and 40 hours for our whole wheat spaghetti.
