Introducing this delectable maccheroni, spelt as macaroni in English, made from wholegrain stoneground British spelt. This time Pastificio Carleschi decided to source their grains locally from British stoneground millers and a small selection of farms who are not yet organic certified but are earnestly working towards it. We think it is important to acknowledge and support the small, young, mills and farms who are using sustainable and regenerative farming methods, including agroforestry, to work towards an extensive system.
Contains gluten and not suitable for people with celiac disease but should be easy to digested by people with a wheat intolerance or sensitivity due to its protein molecular structure being weaker.
The shape is comparable to narrow tubes and spelt has been said to taste of toasted almond, light brown walnut, toffee and caramel. It can be enjoyed however you like, perhaps as part of a classic mac & cheese, but we recommend trying this pasta with pulses in the sauce, it's fantastic!
Pastificio Carleschi make sure none of the amazing nutritional and health benefits of this grain are lost in the milling process. Not to degenerate any of the vitamins, tthey produce and dry their pasta at low temperature.
*Comes in plastic free packaging – fully compostable bags certified for both industrial and home composting environments, as well as for marine biodegradation.
