WE CHOSE IT BECAUSE
Its aromas take us back to ancient times
Spelt can be defined as the pro parent of all other wheat varieties. It was already consumed in Etruscan but especially Roman times: the rich were fond of it and, given the large quantity available, even prisoners and gladiators were entitled to a pound of spelt a day (about 300 grams). Even Roman legionaries left for battles with a handful of spelt in their saddlebags: could this have been the secret of their cunning and power?
At the table, the Bittarelli family’s Pappardelle di Farro goes well with a fresh craft beer because of the common rustic aftertaste characteristic of freshly milled grains. Pappardelle have always been the ideal pasta to serve with a rich sauce, meat or even better game; even with a mushroom or vegetable sauce they manage to exalt themselves at their best. Pappardelle with meat sauce and a bottle of red wine: can you ask for anything better from life?
INGREDIENTS AND BENEFITS
INGREDIENTS: Whole wheat spelt flour, Water.
Ancient grains, of which Spelt is the ancestor, are a panacea for our health when consumed regularly.
The glycemic index of ancient grains is much lower than “modern” grains because they are less refined, which has positive effects on the prevention of diabetes and blood values. They are much more digestible and richer in nutrients, having a very low yield and deep roots that allow them to capture more nutrients from underground. They also have a high protein and vitamin content.
In addition to the nutritional benefits, however, let’s not forget another quality of ancient grains: thanks to their intense aroma of freshly milled wheat, they will bring you back to childhood, when at your grandparents’ you would sense these aromas in the air and soon after find them again at the table.
We receive your order, prepare it and ship it in 24/36 hours.
We are aware that excellent products need excellent packaging and at the same time we cannot risk damaging in any way the precious Italian culinary jewels: for this reason our warehouse is equipped with temperature and lighting ideal for food preservation and the most delicate ones (cheeses, cold cuts and craft beers) are stored inside cold rooms. During shipping, on the other hand, each product is protected with the packaging most appropriate to its characteristics.
Cheeses and cured meats, which despite being aged require special care, travel accompanied by a special slow-release gel ice inside isothermal bags: in this way freshness is preserved until the goods arrive at your home.
For our craft beers, which are unpasteurized and therefore more sensitive to high temperatures than normal, we use a special isothermal bubble wrap, which can ensure that the accumulated cold is maintained for the shipping time while protecting the bottles from shocks.
To secure the precious bottles of Italian wine, we have equipped ourselves with special inflatable bags, designed solely for the purpose of immobilizing and protecting this product inside the box.
For jars containing a thousand Italian goodnesses, we use special protective bubble wrap liners.
