Organic Wholegrain Spelt Mezzi Rigatoni 1kg
Spelt (T. aestivum subsp. spelta). Spelt a hulled wheat has less gluten than bread wheat and a rich nutty flavor. The earliest evidence of spelt is from 6000 BCE in the Caucasus region and southeastern Europe. Eight hundred years ago Hildegard de Bingen a German mystic-botanist-artist praised spelt’s qualities: “Spelt is the best of grains. It is rich nourishing and milder than other grain. it produces a strong body and healthy blood to those eat it and makes the spirit light”.
Spelt is an excellent source of carbohydrates and dietary fiber. It is particularly rich in iron magnesium phosphorous zinc and niacin (vitamin B3) as well as micronutrients such as calcium and vitamin E.
Our Spelt Pasta is made with stoneground wholegrain spelt so that none of the amazing nutrional and health benefits of this grain are lost in the milling process. Not to degenerate any of the vitamins we produce and dry our pasta at low temperature. The same bouquet we enjoy when mixing spelt flour with water we recognise in our finished dry pasta as a sign that nothing is lost in our artisan process. Spelt tastes of toasted almond light brown walnut toffee caramel.
