Spelt is an ancient grain cultivated thousands of years ago and only recently rediscovered. Our Biona Organic Wholegrain Spelt Penne Pasta retains all the goodness of this ancient grain. It’s smooth texture, fantastic flavour, and high fibre content make it a great alternative to wheat pasta. Best yet, although not gluten free, spelt can be tolerated by some people with wheat allergies. To serve, simply combine with Biona pasta sauce or pesto for a nutritious, organic meal. Also included in the spelt pasta range are organic wholegrain and white spaghetti, fusilli and lasagne sheets.

Biona pasta is made in a traditional pastificio in the Dolomite mountains of Northern Italy. Our ingredients are simple – only the best quality organic durum wheat and alpine water. Enjoy “al dente” with Biona pasta sauces.
Italian organic pasta made by Iris Bio in Lombardy, northern Italy. Iris Bio have been a workers’ cooperative since 1978 (nearly as long as we have!). They make pasta about 10km away from the farm using bronze dies (pasta shaping tools) which help to create a texture that holds a sauce much better than conventional methods . The pasta is made using a low temperature method and is slow dried to ensure optimum nutritional quality.
