The products of the Antico Pastificio Morelli are unique in their kind. The secret is an ingredient that is not found in common pasta. It is the wheat germ, which is the heart of the grain, and contains vitamin E, vitamin D and vegetable proteins. Normally, during the milling of the cereal, the wheat germ is excluded from the bran to reduce its perishability. Large industries are forced to work flour without wheat germ. The artisan processing of the old Morelli pasta factory allows to re-insert the wheat germ, always fresh, into the bran. Hence the slogan “WE ARE FROM ANOTHER PASTA”.
After years of use of wheat germ, the Antico Pastificio Morelli managed to obtain a paste with an extraordinary and unmistakable flavor. The Antico Pastificio Morelli, born in 1860, is a family business. After five generations, the Morelli brothers, Lucia, Antonio and Marco, continue the family tradition. The pasta factory produces many specialties, works simple products with ancient craft techniques, avoiding the use of preservatives and dyes. The result is a healthy, genuine pasta with a rich flavor and full-bodied consistency.
Among the Morelli products we find classic items, such as TACCONI with wheat germ or traditional pasta such as PICI di SIENA and TAGLIATELLE al FARRO; in addition, the Pastificio Morelli produces a series of flavored pastas including saffron specialties, porcini mushrooms, cuttlefish ink. Thus, a complete range of everything that is being made is obtained. The pasta is distributed in the best shops in Italy and abroad. The particularly inviting packaging means that the product is also intended for gifts.
