List of products by brand L'Anima di Grano

The Sorrentino factory is situated in the hillside town of Gragnano, Campania, well-known as the birthplace of dry pasta, partly due to its unique weather conditions. Production dates back to the 16th century where, as Forbes noted, Gragnano's "main street was laid out expressly to capture the mountain breeze mixed with sea air back when pasta makers hung spaghetti on drying rods like laundry." L'anima di Grano have decided to revive the age old traditions of their area and make organic pasta with a unique taste and desirable texture, that fully supports the environment and its surrounding territory.

Their modern variation of the Italian classic is made from organic durum wheat semolina (which has high digestibility levels) combined with only the purest spring water. The excellence of raw materials is the only way to obtain a high quality product.

Slow dried at lower temperatures, their bronze-drawn pasta is rough, wrinkled and dusty to the touch, while preserving all the nutrients and taste of the organic raw materials. Bronze-drawing is an age-old activity which demands huge passion and experience, passing from generation to generation and making Gragnano world famous as the pasta city.

Organic, bronze-drawn pasta is not only part of L’anima di Grano’s identity, as a quality producer, rooted in history, but is also the preferred pasta of chefs, experts and gourmets.

Organic Spaghetti (500g) - L'Anima di Grano

£2.90

Slightly thicker than standard spaghetti, this is actually called "spaghettoni", and can handle slightly thicker, heavier sauces.

In Italian, spaghetti means \'little strings\', and this Spaghettoni is a thicker version of standard spaghetti, with a diameter of about 3mm. Made from organic durum wheat semolina (which has high digestibility levels) combined with only the purest spring water, the pasta is bronze-drawn for the highest quality, taste and texture. Spaghetti is a staple food of traditional Italian cuisine and therefore almost every Italian region boasts its own signature spaghetti dish. As spaghettoni is significantly thicker than its more common counterpart, it can be paired with slightly thicker, heavier sauces. Try it with aubergine and tuna bottarga if you\'re feeling gourmet, or intriguingly, "con crema di patate" (a creamy sauce made with solely potatoes, garlic, parmesan and oil) if your larder is looking a little empty.
