Montebello Organic Pasta makes true artisan pasta made with long forgotten Old World techniques. They use durum wheat semolina that has been organically grown on small family farms. The farms are located near the Adriatic sea. The semolina is ground and combined with pure mountain spring water to produce a fine dough. The pasta is slowly dried in traditional drying rooms. Products include: Organic Rigatoni, Organic Conchiglie, Organic Spaghetti, Organic Tagliatelle, Organic Capellini, Organic Linguine, and more. You cannot purchase Montebello Organic pasta products directly through their website. This means that the price could vary depending on where you buy them at.
Organic foods were grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. According to LiveStrong, durum wheat semolina has many healthy benefits. Semolina contains more beta-carotine than other wheat does. Beta-carotine is an antioxidant that helps fight aging and may help protect your immune system. Whole grains are a natural source of fiber, which helps with healthy digestion. It also contains B vitamins, iron, and magnesium. Semolina contains 12% to 15% of protein, which helps with muscle and organ function.
