THE DELALLO DIFFERENCE
No more gritty, earthy-tasting pasta. After years of searching for just the right grain and perfecting the process and ratio, we've done it! Our whole-wheat pasta boasts the irresistible taste and texture of traditional Italian pasta... with the added benefits of hearty whole-wheat goodness.
When durum wheat is milled to make semolina for whole wheat pasta, the soft endosperm is ground along with the coarser bran and germ portions of the kernel, giving whole-wheat pasta added texture and natural health benefits.
Our state-of-the-art milling procedures give our whole-wheat pasta a texture similar to traditional semolina pasta. This milling process imparts a toasted, nutty flavor–much more delicate than other whole-wheat pasta brands that tend to have a gritty texture and overwhelming earthy flavor.
Our whole-wheat pasta is high in fiber, nutrient rich and great-tasting, recognized by the Whole Wheat Council.
Our prized whole-wheat pasta begins with specially ground organic grains. The whole kernel of grain is used and so must be specially ground so as to give pasta just the right texture.
The artisan method of using bronze plates to extrude, or form, pasta gives the surface a coarser texture. This texture allows sauces to cling to each noodle, making each bite the very best.
At DeLallo, we don't believe being healthy means being boring. That's why we made sure to create a vast selection of pasta shapes. From classics like Spaghetti and Penne Rigate to recipe-perfect cuts like Orzo and Gemelli. We even include beloved soup cuts, or pastina, Orzo and Acini di Pepe.
WHY WHOLE WHEAT?
Besides being more hearty and satisfying, whole-wheat pasta is loaded with more protein, fiber. B vitamins and iron. Whole-wheat pasta is important to those trying to stay away from overly processed foods, as flours are not refined.
Substitute traditional semolina pasta for our heart healthy whole wheat. No one at the dinner table will know the difference!
Biodynamic pasta production relies on the pure and ancient practice of sustainable farming for its wheat.

The heart of our Biodynamic Pasta is the wheat grown and harvested with these eco-safe values in Southern Italy.

This is what gives our pasta its unique texture a coarse surface to hug your favorite sauces and enhance the flavor of your dishes. Slow drying at low temperatures maintains our pasta's fresh-bread flavor and that famous al dente bite.
