Pasta Latini Farro Grain Selectionuser rating
Drawing on the accomplishments handed down by three generations and collaboration with agricultural research institutes, Pasta Latini still produces pasta from the best varieties of wheat. The pasta is extruded through bronze dies that were specifically designed by Carlo and Carla Latini. It is dried slowly at low temperatures. This process preserves the molecular structure of the starches while maintaining the color, aroma, flavor and texture.
In 2002 the Latini family created Linea Farro. Farro, an early variety of wheat, is often confused with spelt. Farro grains are larger than spelt berries and has incredible flavor and texture.
