Old World White Spaghetti and Gomiti
The only 100% California grown and milled whole grain pasta on the market.
For our Old World White flour, we whole mill our 100% California grown Hard Amber Durum whole grain wheat in accordance with our Whole Grain Standard.
We then sift out less than 5% of the bran to create a slightly lighter color and less nutty flavor for those tentatively crossing over to the world of whole grain flavor. Virtually all of the germ remains intact retaining the full nutritional benefits of whole grain. This is how flour was milled in the old country and how it is still done in a few smaller mills in Europe.
Hard Amber Durum is known for its strength, rich flavor, and golden color making for pasta with great flexibility. Try with delicate ingredients, fish or cream-based sauces – and meatballs, of course.
Our Old World White style pasta comes in two classic shapes – Spaghetti and Gomiti (elbow) – sure to make the whole family whole grain converts.
All our pastas are made in small batches with bronze dies and slow dried, adding surface friction that sauce can’t help but cling to. Each box serves about four adults.
