The smell, the flavor, the properties and the consistency of the pasta depend as much on the used type of the flour as on fulfillment of some fundamental rules during the plantation, the harvest and the production process. Wheat and barley, of entirely local plantation, handmade production and transformation of the pasta, allow us to obtain the full control of the production chain. To the harvest of the wheat, carried out on June, it follows the milling, which flour and bran are obtained from. The former, obtained from soft wheat, according to the level of refining can be called: whole flour, type 1 and 2 flour, type 0 and 00 flour; the latter, obtained from durum wheat, it is a less refined product and of more intense yellow, that suits perfectly for the production of the dried pasta and preferred for its organoleptic properties with higher level of fibers. The barley, the oldest cereal in the world, is a plant with annual cycle, thus it is considered a niche product for its characteristics. The presence of important elements as fibers and vitamins lead it to have healthy properties for gastrointestinal and circulatory systems.
