New Full Circle Producer: Baia Pasta
The search for organic pasta in the United States has been a hard one. Until we heard about Baia, most of the organic pasta we could find was imported from Italy. We love that they’re making an incredible product with American-grown organic grains.
Here’s a little more about this groundbreaking company and our new Full Circle producer:
The seed for Baia Pasta started when Renato learned that most Italian pasta is made from American and Canadian wheat that is shipped to Italy, made into pasta, and then shipped back. After a few years of study, Renato extracted enough wisdom from the Italian maestri to start extruding his own pastasciutta made from all sorts of grains from local farms.
Baia Pasta specializes in brass-extruded pasta using only the finest organic flours from America, mostly from Utah, Montana, Colorado. They also collaborate with California farmers to grow unique durum and spelt wheat varieties.
Baia Pasta believes that American wheat is among the best in the world and they are very proud to create the first pasta that glorifies all its features.
You can find Baia pasta in your Full Circle Grocery.
