They offer an intense and unique taste that evokes the flavors of past eras.
Bella Italia Organic Farro Strozzapreti pasta is made with Triticum Dicoccum, one of the first grains cultivated by man since the rise of agriculture. This variety of spelt probably originated back in the ancient “Fertile Crescent” – a crescent-shaped region of the Middle East whose shores were flooded by the Euphrates, Tigris, and Nile rivers. Then, it spread to Italy, where it became the most widely grown and cultivated grain during the Roman times and in the Middle Ages, keeping its relevance until the discovery of America.
One of the distinctive features of this cereal is its remarkable resistance and low environmental impact associated with its cultivation. This plant is extraordinarily adaptable to different types of soil and temperatures and shows significant resistance to diseases. Easy to digest and with an intense aroma, ancient spelt is a tasty alternative to classic wheat. It is a source of protein and fiber, B vitamins, and essential minerals.
