- The wheat plant has a height of about 1.80 metres (higher than common wheat plants), and contains higher percentages of lipids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, as well as characteristics of high digestibility. The natural height of the plants allows us to eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers to promote growth.
- Has never been subject to the genetic modification techniques of modern agriculture, that sacrifice traditional taste for higher production.'Senatore Cappelli' wheat is produced exclusively by organic agriculture in a hilly uncontaminated area in the Lucano hinterland (Calanchi), only 50 Km from the our factory. This short distance between cultivation area and production site allows the denomination for this production with the name “short chain”! The flour that is obtained from the grain is delivered to our company's production immediately after the milling.
