Girolomoni® Durum Wheat Spaghetti are made using only durum wheat semolina, obtained exclusively from grain grown in Italy, and water from source that does not have industrial agriculture upstream. The cropped wheat is storaged in silos treated with a powder of fossilized algae and silicon dioxide to ensure the proper maintenance of cereals. The semolina, acquired from the milling of durum wheat, gives the typical amber color to pasta and enriched it with proteins and nutritional and organoleptic properties present in the grain. The semolina is mixed with water, making mix starch and gluten; the obtained mixture is then extruded through a drawing machine to give it the desired shape. This spaghetti is left to dry for about twenty-four hours so that pasta retains all the nutrients of the wheat. This spaghetti is certified by Kosher and ICEA (Environmental and Ethical Certification Institute)
The activity of the Mutual Company Gino Girolomoni® began in 1971 with the founder who, as mayor of the town of Isola del Piano (PU), commenced promoting initiatives to enhance and support ancient farming society, and organized courses and international seminars on biological agriculture. In 1977, these early experiences allowed the birth of the Agricultural Co-op Alce Nero®, who, after having sold the brand in 1995, changed its name to Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op®. With its thirty members and thirty-five employees, Gino Girolomoni Agricultural Co-op® has contributed largely to the organic farming development in Italy.
General Information: Pasta is cheap and easy to prepare; you have to cook pasta but you can eat it warm or cold, as pasta salad, you can toss it just cooked or sauté it in a pan before serving. How to eat: Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil (around 1 litre for every 100 grams of pasta that you want to cook), add salt to taste; add the pasta to boiling water and stir softly; cook for about 8 minutes, for authentic Italian "al dente" pasta, start counting the cooking time when the water returned to a boil. Drain the pasta and serve with your sauces and favorite toppings.
