We visited Sicily many years ago in December and got to see the planting of the wheat fields. The wheat produced in Sicily, for what I heard, was a special wheat specifically for pasta.The nutrients were not stripped away like our white AP flour. And they wheat variety was extremely digestible even to gluten intolerant. I have tried many "Italian " pasta varieties and all were, for the most part, excellent. The Papa Vince pasta (both kinds) was even better. I highly recommend this pasta.

This pasta is as advertised: a light, delicious flavor (not a heavy wheat texture) and does not leave me feeling bloated. It also stays al dente after being re-heated and holds a sauce really well.



FAQ - The Health Power of Ancient Grains

Can Switching to Ancient Grains Improve Your Dietary Habits?

Unlike modern wheat, which has been selectively bred for higher gluten strength and yield, ancient grains offer a gluten quality that is inherently less inflammatory and more digestible.

This makes them a superior choice for those looking to improve their dietary habits. Modern grain hybridization and gene alteration have primarily affected wheat's protein content, resulting in ancient grains having a weaker gluten index in their more naturally occurring form.

Additionally, the protein content is why ancient grain pasta, made in the traditional way, preserves superfood levels of nutrition in terms of vitamins and minerals.

What Nutritional Edge Do Ancient Grains Hold Over Modern Ones?

Ancient grains hold a significant nutritional edge over modern ones.

They are not just about lower gluten toxicity; they are nutritional powerhouses enriched with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients.

Research underscores the benefits of ancient grains for their digestible gluten and reduced levels of immunogenic proteins, which contribute to decreased inflammation and improved tolerance for gluten-related disorders.

Furthermore, the elevated presence of secondary metabolites and polyphenols in ancient grains enhances their metabolic and clinical benefits, underscoring their nutritional superiority.

Why Are Natural Proteins and Omega-3s More Potent in Our Pasta

Our pasta's standout nutritional profile, featuring highly potent natural proteins and omega-3s, stems from our commitment to the age-old technique of cold stone grinding.

This artisanal process is the cornerstone of our approach, ensuring the wheat's vital nutrients—natural proteins, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber—are preserved in their most wholesome form.

Unlike modern processing methods, which often strip away these essential nutrients, our traditional grinding technique safeguards the wheat's nutritional integrity.

This meticulous process preserves our pasta's dense nutritional content and imbues it with an unparalleled 'al dente' texture and a harmonious blend of robust, earthy flavors complemented by a hint of subtle sweetness.

At Papa Vince, we believe in honoring the wheat's soul by retaining its healthful essence, offering you a pasta experience that is not only delicious but deeply nourishing

FAQ - Gentle on the Gut

Can Ancient Grains Be a Healthier Option for Gluten Sensitivities?

Absolutely, ancient grains represent a healthier choice for individuals with gluten sensitivities due to their unique gluten structure, which is different from modern wheat. Because of ancient grain’s inherent biodiversity, this particularly distinguishes the genetic spectrum compared to modern wheat, that has been hybridized for very few gluten gene diversity.

This difference results in a less elastic and potentially less inflammatory response, making ancient grains particularly beneficial for those with gluten sensitivities or anyone interested in anti-inflammatory dietary choices.

The distinct gluten composition in ancient grains, such as spelt, farro, and einkorn, may be easier to digest for some people, reducing the risk of discomfort or adverse reactions commonly associated with gluten consumption.

Moreover, these grains offer a wealth of nutritional benefits, including high levels of fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, contributing to a well-rounded diet. Their diverse nutritional profile can support overall health, offering an array of antioxidants and phytonutrients that promote digestive health, improve metabolic functions, and may even reduce the risk of chronic diseases.

For those navigating gluten sensitivities, integrating ancient grains into their diet can open up new avenues for enjoying a variety of foods without compromising on taste or nutritional value.

Why Is the Gluten in Ancient Grains Considered Less Inflammatory?

Ancient grains possess a gluten structure inherently different from that of modern wheat, making it less elastic and potentially less inflammatory. This characteristic is especially beneficial for individuals with gluten sensitivities or those pursuing anti-inflammatory dietary choices.

Ancient grains' less elastic gluten suggests a healthier option, aligning with the needs of those looking to maintain a balanced and sensitive diet.

Can Switching to Ancient Grain Pasta Ease Gastrointestinal Issues?

Incorporating ancient and heritage grains into one's diet could improve health. Clinical trials have demonstrated that these grains can diminish inflammation, bolster metabolic health, and even assist individuals with specific gastrointestinal issues.

The shift towards ancient grains is more than a dietary trend; it's a return to the roots of nutrition and wellness. Papa Vince’s Ancient Grain Pasta stands as a testament to the timeless virtues of ancient grains, inviting you to experience enhanced nutrition, richer taste, and a profound connection to age-old culinary practices with every bite.

FAQ - The Revival of Busiate Artisanal Pasta

What's the difference between Italian and American Non-Enriched Wheat?

The difference between Italian and American non-enriched wheat largely hinges on cultivation practices and regulations regarding GMOs and pesticide use, notably glyphosate (herbicide).

Italian wheat, especially non-enriched varieties, is typically grown under stringent European regulations that favor non-GMO crops and significantly restrict the use of glyphosate and other chemicals. This approach ensures that the wheat remains as natural and untouched as possible, preserving its nutritional integrity and flavor.

In contrast, even when non-enriched, American wheat may still be produced from GMO strains and is more likely to be exposed to glyphosate and other pesticides during cultivation. These practices can raise concerns about potential health impacts and environmental sustainability. The use of glyphosate, in particular, has been a point of contention, with debates over its safety and effects on human health and the ecosystem.

Choosing Italian non-enriched wheat means opting for a product that aligns with stricter standards for GMOs and pesticide use, offering a cleaner, potentially safer ingredient for consumers who prioritize natural and environmentally friendly agricultural methods.

Stone-Ground vs. Refined: What Difference Does It Make in Our Pasta?

Far from the stripped-down essence of refined flours, our durum wheat semolina is a testament to whole grains' integrity. By choosing not to refine our semolina, we ensure that the pasta retains the complexity of flavors and nutrients that refined counterparts often lose.

This commitment to maintaining the semolina’s natural state allows us to deliver a product that tastes better and aligns with our vision of offering healthful, nourishing food.

Why Choose Pasta Made with Ancient Grain Wheat Semolina?

Indulge in a slice of Italy with our Sicilian Ancient Grain Wheat Semolina Pasta, a nod to the timeless traditions of Italian cuisine. Celebrating the full, untouched essence of the wheat grain, our pasta is made from durum wheat semolina, known for its golden hue and rich, nutty flavor.

This choice reflects our commitment to preserving the grain's wholesome goodness and natural aroma, offering an authentic taste of Sicilian heritage in every bite.

How Do We Keep Antioxidants and Fiber Intact in Every Bite?

Our secret to preserving the wheat's soul lies in the age-old art of cold stone grinding. This traditional method keeps the natural proteins, omega-3s, antioxidants from the germ, and fiber from the bran intact, unlike modern processing techniques that can diminish these essential nutrients.

Papa Vince’s Pasta boasts an unparalleled 'al dente' texture and a perfect balance of robust, earthy tones and a subtle sweetness—thanks to our dedication to preserving these vital nutrients.

Where Does Busiate Pasta Come From?

Busiate pasta, a culinary treasure with its iconic corkscrew shape, originates from the heart of Sicily. This form, a masterpiece of ingenuity, dates back to when Sicilians used a simple grass stem to roll the dough, giving Busiate its distinctive helical twist. This method, born from necessity, has become a beloved staple of the Sicilian pasta-making tradition.

Each curve of our Busiate pasta is meticulously crafted, creating an ideal surface that clings to every drop of sauce. The intricate shape makes every bite a perfect fusion of flavor and visual appeal, embodying Sicilian culinary culture's rich history.

When you choose Busiate, you're not just enjoying a pasta dish; you're partaking in a storied tradition of Sicilian cuisine. The name "Busiate" itself echoes the centuries-old practices of the island, making it more than just pasta – it's a celebration of culture and history in every twirl.

FAQ - Agriculture Without Modern Intervention

Why are Ancient Grains from Sicily the Best?

In countries like Canada, France, and the USA, the battle against fungus and mycotoxins is a significant concern for wheat cultivation, often compromising the integrity of the whole wheat berry, forcing them to use fungicides.

Did you know certain people mistake gluten sensitivity with being allergic or sensitive to fungicides?

However, Sicily stands apart in this regard, thanks to its dry and hot climate that naturally discourages fungus growth. This favorable environment allows for the preservation of the entire whole wheat berry without the worry of mycotoxin contamination.

The unique climatic conditions of Sicily provide an ideal setting for growing wheat that is both healthy and pure, ensuring that the risk of fungus-induced damage is minimized and the quality of the wheat remains uncompromised.

At Papa Vince, we Lab Test all our products to ensure no mycotoxin contamination and no fungicides are used during farming.

Why can Ancient Grains from Sicily be Cultivated without Pesticides?

Sicilian ancient grains, celebrated for their extraordinary biodiversity and resilience, flourish without the need for fertilizers, pesticides, or artificial irrigation.

Genetically akin to einkorn wheat, humanity's oldest known wheat, these grains provide a gluten-sensitive option, yielding a nutritious and digestible whole wheat berry.

Science is now uncovering the potential of these resilient grains, which have flourished under the influence of diverse cultures throughout history.

Best Pasta, Hands Down

The 2 types of pasta sold by Papa Vince are vastly superior to any other pastas we have tried. Not only is the taste noticeably better, but also the texture. I occasionally send a care package of pastas and sauce to my daughter who has moved out of state. My family has always been very happy with all the Papa Vince products we have tried…not only the pasta and sauce, but the olive oil and vinegar too.


I really like this pasta. It’s not only delicious but good for you too. I did cook it a little longer for more tenderness.

J.G. (Littleton, US)
