Pastificio Carleschi Emmer & Fava Bean Sedani Pasta 400g
There are many reasons why we, at Carleschi, are so proud of our Emmer and Fava bean pasta. First of all, it is the result of a very exciting collaboration with Hodmedod’s in Suffolk. They work together with local farmers to search out and develop production of British grains and pulses (beans, peas, lentils and chickpeas).
Emmer is a very healthy cereal that’s rich in fibre, protein, minerals, carotenoids, other vitamins and antioxidant components, and poor in fats. Fava beans too are dense with nutrition and have no saturated fat or cholesterol. They boost a high concentration of vitamins (thiamin, vitamin K, vitamin B-6), minerals (potassium, copper, selenium, zinc, magnesium), protein and fibre nobili (soluble fibre) at one third of the calories content of grains.
In short, if you combine Emmer and Fava bean together then you have a super-pasta: packed with nutrients, soluble and insoluble fibre, a complete source of lean natural protein at a much lower intake of calories, isn’t that great?
To make sure not to burn out all this goodness; we slow dry our pasta at a low temperature. And, we take all the time it needs to make sure that our Emmer and Fava Bean, Sedani Rigati, cooks perfectly al dente in 8 minutes.
We think it looks and taste delicious: it possesses a wonderful velvety rough surface; has a deep yet delicate chestnut colour; and an intense sweet flavour with a gentle hint of fresh fava bean, reminiscent of those summer days when you squeeze the beans out of their pods.
*Comes in plastic free packaging – fully compostable bags certified for both industrial and home composting environments, as well as for marine biodegradation.
