Elbow pasta is quite a popular product. The pasta, shaped like narrow tubes of up to 2.5 cm in size, is hollow inside and slightly curved. Due to its shape, this type of pasta is used for such famous dish as Navi-style pasta and added to soups and stews. Italians conventionally add this pasta to salads, and it is also consumed not only hot but also cold.
Elbow pasta produced by August TM is made of 100% durum wheat flour. Due to its properties and the specific recipe for dough preparation, the pasta is easy to cook, it does not fall apart when cooked and does not glue together. We recommend cooking it for 5 to 10 minutes.
Durum wheat flour is yellow. Consequently, all pasta made if it is of the same color. The main exporting country is Italy, but other countries with dry and hot climatic conditions also import it.
Durum wheat is rich in carotene, phosphorus, selenium, and zinc. To make dough from it, we recommend adding a small amount of olive oil. The low fat content in such products makes them good to be included in diets for people who are trying to keep their weight trim.
August TM manufactures elbow pasta in an ecologically clean region of Transcarpathia, using European high-quality durum wheat flour and crystal clear water. This organic product does not contain preservatives or egg powder. The pasta is offered in 400 g transparent packs.
