Whole wheat flours

And what about our whole wheat flours instead? Nutritionists indicate, without a shadow of a doubt, that these have the prerogative to keep the nutrients present in both the germ and the wheat bran unchanged, while refined flours are obtained using only the endosperm of the seed, thus deprived of the fibers and most of the minerals and vitamins of which the components of the seed are very rich.

Among the producers of our flours, an excellent mill : Antico Molino Rosso. It is located in Buttapietra, in the province of Verona, and dates back to the 16th century. In the Molino Rosso there is a paddle wheel, dating back to &' year 1858, which was once used to make the & #39 work; the entire plant. Antico Molino Rosso has always been stone grinding: this process maintains the characteristics of the product unchanged, preserving as far as possible in the flours all the important nutritional qualities of the bean. Molino Rosso also produces Senatore Cappelli durum wheat flour, just right for those who want to produce the highest quality products.

Cous Cous

A characteristic dish, derived from the processing of cereals, is undoubtedly couscous, defined as the “national dish of the Berbers”. Very common in North African cuisine (but also in Sicily), it is a food rich in beneficial properties: it is full of fibers, which stimulate the intestine and help to rid the body of dangerous elements that can promote the onset of tumors; it is rich in carbohydrates, proteins, starch, it is a source of B vitamins and vitamin A; it has important mineral salts, including potassium, phosphorus, magnesium and calcium. It contains 356 calories per 100 grams, has good digestibility, is very low in fat, therefore recommended for those who must be careful with their diet.


Instead, let's talk about quinoa: a low-calorie and gluten-free food native to South America, useful for heart and muscle health. It is a plant belonging to the Chenopidaceae family, gluten-free, and instead rich in proteins, carbohydrates and dietary fiber. In its composition there are two essential amino acids that are very important for the proper functioning of the body: lysine and methionine. The latter helps insulin metabolism. Finally, it contains a good amount of minerals and vitamins, in particular magnesium, vitamin C and vitamin E.
