Whole Wheat Spaghetti using only durum wheat grown and harvested every year in the fields surrounding the pasta factory in the sunny fields of Monte San Pietrangeli, in the heart of the Marche.
Semolina and water are the only two ingredients. The milling process here preserves every element of the wheat: the germ, the endosperm and the bran. This results in a higher content of fibre and minerals. Mancini uses circular bronze dies to shape their pasta and then they dry it at temperatures below 44°C. It takes 23 hours for the two short pasta cuts and 40 hours for the whole wheat spaghetti.
Whole Wheat Spaghetti have a length of 260 mm and a diameter of 2.2 mm. Their cooking time is between 7 and 9 minutes.
