“OUR PASTA IS SOMETHING ELSE“
The Morelli pasta production factory is unique. They have a secret ingredient that is not found in other pasta. It’s the heart of the grain itself… wheat germ. Wheat germ contains vitamin A, vitamin D, as well as vegetable protein so it has significant nutritional value. When the wheat goes through the grinding process the wheat germ is removed from the semolina in order to reduce the perish-ability.
Thanks to the craftsmanship used at the Morelli Pasta Factory the wheat germ is re-incorporated into the semolina. Hence Morelli’s slogan is “OUR PASTA IS SOMETHING ELSE“. Their pasta has a unique flavor. It releases a wonderful aroma on cooking and the cooking water take on a slight green hue.
Morelli was founded in 1860, and is now run by the fifth generation of the Morelli family. Today Lucia, Antonio and Marco run the company preserving its traditions. Morelli uses ancient craft techniques and is free of both preservatives and coloring agents. The result is truly wholesome pasta, with a wonderfully rich flavour and full consistency.
