Sicilian Heirloom Wheat
Our Ancient/Native Wheat Explained
This pasta is made artisanally in small batches with stone-ground flour crafted from Sicilian heirloom wheat varieties. These native varieties were grown and widespread in Sicily before the GMO revolution. According to the natural cycles, local farmers were growing crops with no CHEMICALS and in the most sustainable way.
Sicilian heirloom wheat has weaker gluten chemical composition which results in a high digestibility and prevents gluten intolerances.
NO PESTICIDES- CHEMICALS-GLYPHOSATE
Heirloom wheat does NOT need any of these to grow and ripen. The reason is simple. It belongs to the biodiversity of Sicily therefore it can coexist with "aromatic weeds" and defend itself naturally from diseases. The Sicilian sun does the rest.
This traditional and old technique helps us to get a wholesome and unrefined product preserving the wheat germ and all the flavors and nutrients that come with it.
