De Cecco Semola di Grano Duro Rimacinata Biologica is the result of a centuries old tradition and the search for the best ingredients. It is obtained by using exclusively natural methods and combines the quest for authenticity with the love of taste.
The products, which are cultivated according to the European Regulations on Organic Agriculture, respect environmental balance since no chemical fertilisers or artificial chemical insecticides are used for their production. Natural cultivation techniques and fertilisers are adopted and they are subjected to the same strict controls, inspections, sampling and analyses of the control system in use throughout Europe.
The Semola Rimacinata (re-milled semolina flour) is particularly suited to making fragrant home-made bread and to preparing, either by hand or with an automatic pasta machine, excellent fettuccine, maccheroni alla chitarra, gnocchi and any other type of pasta with or without eggs.

This rice is now used widely in the north east of Italy to prepare typical dishes due to the age-old culinary traditions of the Veneto and Mantua regions. Indeed, it brings out the best in the traditional flavours of those regions, making the simple ingredients that typify these areas, such as pumpkin, snails and game, into the ideal seasoning for a wide variety of risottos. The rounded grains of Vialone Nano mean that this rice is excellent for absorbing seasoning and produces an enviable yield when cooked which is why it can be used in numerous ways and combinations. Particularly suited for risottos.
For making risottos, use of a mild flavoured olive oil is recommended so it does not mask the very delicate flavour of the rice. The best solution is a combination of oil and butter because the oil raises the so-called "smoke point" of the butter and stops the small quantity of whey in the butter from burning.
Vacuum-packing prevents the rice from changing and preserves the colour, flavour and nutritional values of the grain.
