Turanicum Wheat Penne Lisce Mancini - 500gr
Our Turanicum Wheat line pasta is made from Turanicum wheat (Triticum Turgidum subspecie turanicum, more commonly known as T. turanicum). The variety originated in the Khorasan region (north-east of Iran) and its cultivations are present in the Mediterranean basin and also in Italy, but in modern times they have been forgotten because of low yield.
In 2014 we have begun to develop methodologies and pasta making tools to best interpret the treasure of this wheat, revaluated and cultivated by the Prometeo company together with Oriana Porfiri, an expert cereal agronomist and breeder. We use circular bronze die plates and we dry pasta at temperatures lower than 55°C, taking about 20 hours for short pasta shapes. The result obtained by the union of this semolina and water is an earth-colored pasta with a marked scent of wheat.
From qualitative studies a very interesting aspect has emerged regarding the peculiarity of the gluten, which is very soft and easily digestible.
