Fusilli - Organic durum wheat semolina pasta with organic Spirulina Powder - 0.55 Lb - 250 gr.
The secret of our pasta lies in the processing inspired by tradition. We select the best durum wheat semolina and the best natural raw materials without colourings or chemical preservatives. The mixture is extruded through a bronze die. The dies, made of bronze, make the surface of the pasta rougher and more porous so that it holds the sauces and dressing better. Unlike high temperature industrial systems, our extremely delicate and slow (over twenty hours) drying method makes it possible to preserve the wheat’s precious values of nutrition and taste.
Spirulina is scientifically known as Arthrospira (Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima), belonging to the Cyanophiaceae family and lives mainly in the fresh water of the sub-tropical areas. It has a blue-green color and the typical spiral shape which named it. Its use has been known for hundreds of years since Roman times, even before its discovery by science. According to scholars, it has an important antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action. Its richness of linoleic acid seems to favor the lowering of cholesterol values in the blood; not least the high nutritional intake due to its quantity of vitamins and minerals.
