DetailsOur biodynamic whole-wheat pasta begins as the finest hard durum wheat that is grown and harvested in Southern Italy under the strict eco-safe standards of biodynamic farming. This method of farming relies on the pure and ancient practice of sustainable farming. Specifically, biodynamic farms rotate crops, compost excess and take pride in a system that is free of growth hormones, chemical pesticides and unnatural fertilizers. Expertly milled flour is combined with cool spring water, then extruded into pasta with artisanal bronze dies. These dies create a rougher surface area made to capture pasta sauces. Slow drying at low temperatures ensure that pasta retains nutrients and its fresh-bread flavor. Always cooks up al dente.
