What kind of pasta do we make?


At the stage of formation of Crown Food Group company, we decided to produce pasta exclusively from durum wheat, under its own brands; CAPITELLI, CONTARINI, CROWN PASTA, which is made on request in Italy and Spain.

Why solid wheat – because it is durum wheat, they are the most useful for the human body, containing useful minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, B vitamins, including riboflavin, which helps to reduce fatigue, and so the same pasta is rich in protein: for example, a dish made from 100 g of pasta satisfies our daily need for protein and carbohydrates by 30%. In addition, such pasta contains fiber, which stimulates the work of the intestines, reduces the likelihood of developing cardiovascular and even certain oncological ailments. Fiber quickly removes the slag from the slagged, “neglected”, fattened body fat.
