Organic Whole Wheat Conchiglie by L'Origine
"Wholemeal" pasta is made exclusively from organic hard wheat flour ground together with a percentage of the grain shell. In order to preserve all of the nutritional properties of the grain, the cereal is ground and transformed in the shortest time possible. This gives the pasta a more intense taste. The presence of a part of the shell of the grain helps mineral salts absorb and aids the upkeep of the intestine. Bronze drawn into shell shapes, the pasta is then slowly dried at a low temperature to maintain the nutritional properties of the grains. You can't go wrong with conchiglie, whatever sauce you choose clings to its inner shell. Popular for hot or cold pastas.

L'ORIGINE is situated in Castegnero in the province of Vicenza in the district of Colli Berici. The factory is perched atop the beautiful Berici Hills. We had the privilege of touring their family-run factory overlooking olive groves and the fertile plains below. The distinguishing trait of a family atmosphere immediately stands out, an environment where every thing is performed according to simple rhythms in which man is still involved in the transformation of the produce. In the mill some grains are slowly ground by a stone mill in order to prevent overheating and the loss of some nutritional elements of the grain itself. We were served an outstanding sampling of their favorite family pasta dishes made by the Beccaro family themselves. We are pleased to offer their wholesome, healthy, organic and delicious line of pastas.
