    Default Wholewheat pasta

    Hello All!

    I can see that people might prefer whole-wheat pasta on grounds of
    health and possibly, taste and I know that whole-wheat pasta imported
    from Italy is sold in the US. However, I wonder how popular whole-wheat
    pasta is in Italy given the usual conservatism?

    They've probably never heard of it, I wonder if the Italian whole-wheat
    pasta sold here is simply something produced solely for export...along the
    lines of St. Pauli Girl Beer.

    Or maybe it is just produced only there?

    It does not appear to be terribly popular, but it is available. It is
    called pasta integrale (as in semolo integrale di grano duro).

    Vilco,

    Maybe a "for USA only" product.

    http://ronzonihealthyharvest.newworldpasta.com/

    I don't actually know if Ronzoni is an American company to begin with!

    Best,

    I hear it has gotten better, but then it almost had to. I never liked it.
    My kid like Barilla Plus which is Barilla Orizzonte here, but I haven't
    tried that, either. I'm not convinced that changing wheat starches in part
    to bean starches does me any good.

    Orizzonti Barilla and all whole wheat pasta you find in the market at good
    prize, is not very tasty. When I want to eat a good Pasta integrale, I go to
    a macrobiotic shop and I can pay for it 3 euro for 500 gr. of pasta. Another
    thing: I have eaten spelt pasta and I think it is tastier then the other (if
    you season it, only with oil, some garlic, parsley ).

    I tried wholewheat pasta once in the eighties, blech. Once in the
    nineties, blech again. Then I tried the Barilla integrale 2 years ago
    - oh my oh my, I swear it's even better than the usual version!

    Similarly, I don't like wholewheat pasta at all, but the Barilla Plus,
    as it's called here, uses a combination of flours and they tried hard
    to make it taste good. I wouldn't say it's better than regular
    semolina pasta, but it's much more pleasant than the other ww
    kinds. -aem
