Nutracentis: The Union of Taste and Health
Ancient grains, superfood and artisanal methods for a gluten-free pasta 100% Italian Organic Certified
White Corn and Sorghum are the ancient Italian cereals of the dried pasta line Nutracentis of the italian company “Agricultura Biologica” srl (aka Ab).
The principles of nutraceuticals and functional foods has led to the innovation and creation of unique recipes mixing ancient grains and superfood like spirulina, red beet and turmeric.
How Nutracentis gluten-free pasta is made?
Our pasta is made by water and flour without any thickener. "The heart of the project is the study of the correlations of the properties of various foods to create products capable of offering real benefits, going beyond the world of vegan and gluten-free foods" - the founder of AB says - "in this perspective we collaborate with Universities, Research Centers and Hospitals to constantly improve our products and test them rigorously". One of our abstracts on sorghum was presented at the International Sorghum Conference in South Africa in April and another one was published in a scientific US international journal.
Nutracentis won an international award at the 2018 “Seeds & Chips summit for innovation, product quality, process sustainability and packaging”. The competition saw the participation of 70 startups in the food and beverage sector.
The Award was won ex aequo with Beyond Meat.
