10. What is the difference between conventional pasta and organic pasta? Why should I choose organic products?
Organic pasta is pasta produced from organically grown durum wheat semolina.

Continuous monitoring of these stages is indeed the main reason for the increased food safety offered by the final product when it reaches our table.
