Produced in London, Pastificio Carleschi are the first and only British artisan producer of organic dry pasta made with British stoneground flour from ancient wheat varieties (Spelt, Emmer and Einkorn).
Einkorn is the most ancient wheat domesticated by hunter-gatherers and Neolithic farmers. Einkorn has been cherished by villagers through the ages for its rich flavour, digestibility, and high nutrition. It contains more antioxidants, protein, and minerals than modern wheat. It is higher in protein than quinoa. In fact, einkorn is higher in protein than any other small grain. Einkorn’s wildlike ability to translocate nutrients into the seed translates into an average of 30% higher protein; 15% less starch; 200% higher lutein; 50% greater manganese, riboflavin, and zinc; and about 20% higher magnesium, thiamin, niacin, iron, and vitamin B6 than modern wheat.
This Einkorn Gigli Rigati is made with stoneground wholegrain einkorn so that none of the amazing nutritional and health benefits of this grain are lost in the milling process. Not to degenerate any of the vitamins, they produce and dry their pasta at a low temperature. The same bouquet enjoyed when mixing spelt flour with water is recognised in the finished dry pasta as a sign that nothing is lost in the artisan process. Einkorn tastes of honey, honeycomb, chamomile, vanilla, cinnamon and white chocolate.
