Spelt pasta has become a popular option for consumers with wheat intolerance and allergies.
Farmer & producer: Powlett Hill
Spelt, also known as dinkel wheat, or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat cultivated since approximately 5000 BC.
Rigatoni is a particular favorite pasta shape in the south of Italy, especially in Sicily. Its namesake ridges make better adhesive surfaces for sauces and grated cheese than smooth-sided pasta like ziti.
The dried pasta is darker in appearance but cooks lighter in colour and lighter in taste, much kinder on the digestive system. Our pasta is processed by specialty pasta processors in Victoria and South Australia, both are committed to the high standards required by their certifying bodies.
The lightly sifted flour used in processing pasta has the coarsest brans removed still producing a highly nutritious food. Spelt is recognised as being higher in protein than conventional wheats.
