Delightful Culinary Combinations – Solspring® Biodynamic® Pastas and Polenta
Exclusively produced from durum wheat grown in the fields of Tuscany and Sicily, the Solspring® brand of pastas go hand-in-hand with delicious Solspring® pasta sauces. The fields in these abundant agricultural regions have specialized in growing wheat since ancient times.
By employing biodynamic methods, such as practicing crop rotation and promoting biodiversity, our wheat farmers help enrich the soil and the environment, yielding fresh, healthful ingredients.
Once harvested, the wheat used in Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Pastas is ground into semolina flour by one of the earliest expert milling facilities in Northern Italy, which has served as a pioneer in adopting regenerative organic practices.
All Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Pastas are bronze-drawn, which naturally creates a coarser, more porous surface. This allows sauces to cling onto the pasta noodles, ensuring a perfectly flavorful bite.
With Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Pastas, you have a wide variety of choices available to help make your meal a culinary delight:
- Spaghetti Durum Wheat Pasta
- Penne Durum Wheat Pasta
- Penne Durum Wheat Pasta with Turmeric
- Angel Hair Durum Wheat Pasta
- Tagliatelle Durum Wheat Pasta with Spirulina
These Solspring® Pastas contain 6 to 8 grams of protein with zero amounts of sodium or added sugars.
Simply add your favorite Biodynamic® Sauces and Pastes to the pastas, and you’re ready to serve up a delicious meal.
You can also include polenta as a delicious side dish. Crafted from corn harvested on a family-owned biodynamic farm at the foot of the Alps in Northwest Italy, Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Instant Polenta helps you create flavorful polenta recipes.
Transformed in a historical mill specializing in gluten-free flour, the biodynamic corn turns into a vibrantly golden and diverse polenta meal.
As Solspring® Biodynamic® Organic Instant Polenta is delivered precooked, it can be prepared in only about 3-5 minutes and quickly added to your entrée.
So why is “biodynamic” an incredibly important standard when it comes to the food you eat?
The Farm as a Living Organism
The biodynamic concept views a farm as a living organism. Its self-contained, self-sustaining ecosystem follows the cycles of nature. The farm creates its vitality and well-being out of its own dynamics, returning life back to the soil.
Certified Organic is a minimum requirement we insist on for any pasta sauces, pastes or pastas you may choose. However, there’s another certification that elevates the standards on sustainable, regenerative agriculture and pushes the envelope on growing nutritious, flavorful food.
Just because a plant is organic doesn’t guarantee it is high quality. If the soil lacks important nutrients, it’s likely the plant will lack nutrients.
For nutritious plants, you need good topsoil. And to build good nutrient-rich topsoil, we believe the best possible way to go is to follow regenerative farming methods.
A step above organic, Demeter Certified Biodynamic® farming utilizes regenerative farming methods with a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach, creating a self-sustaining ecosystem.
Biodynamic and Organic – What’s the Difference?
Demeter is the world’s oldest ecological certification organization and sets the standards for biodynamic just like the National Organic Program (NOP) sets organic standards.
Demeter is well known within Central Europe. In fact, a full 10% of German organic farmland is Demeter Certified Biodynamic®.
Let’s take a closer look at how Certified Biodynamic® compares to NOP’s Certified Organic standards:
|Allows imported organic fertilizers
||Reduces imported materials by utilizing nutrient-rich humus created within the farming system
|Allows imported organic pesticides
||Creation of biologically diverse habitat encourages balanced predator-prey relationships
|Does not require the use of livestock
||Integrates livestock to improve soils
|Does not address the rotation of crops
||Promotes crop rotation and makes intensive use of cover crops (green manure) to add nutrients to the soil
|Organic feed for livestock can come from anywhere in the world
||50% of livestock feed must be grown on the farm
|No requirement for biodiversity
||10% of total farm acreage must be set aside for biodiversity
|Focused on crops and allows for only one section of a farm to be certified versus the whole
||Focused on farms and requires that the whole farm be certified
|Product certification focuses mainly on ingredients used
||Product certification uses 12 biodynamic processing standards so the agricultural ingredients used define the product
If a farm is Certified Biodynamic, it has also met the organic standard, even if it isn’t Certified Organic. Certified Organic is still a very high-quality standard, while Certified Biodynamic is simply a step up to an even higher standard, making it the platinum standard for high-quality, nutrient-dense food.
It’s important to note that many organic farmers recognize the importance of caring for their soil and may already be practicing some of the biodynamic methods.
Why It’s Important to Find the Most Nutritious Ingredients When Making Pasta Dishes
Lycopene is the pigment that gives many fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes, their rosy red color. It’s a naturally occurring nutrient and a super carotenoid antioxidant with powerful activity.
Unlike most other raw foods, there’s a very intriguing thing about raw tomatoes. When cooked, the bioavailability of lycopene actually increases rather than decreases.
Unfortunately, most commercial tomato sauce brands are loaded with extra sugars and some with high-fructose corn syrup. Many brands contain as many as 11 to 12 grams of sugar in only a half-cup serving.
Many commercial pasta brands include extra added sugars and are made from what we consider less than ideal flour, not from durum wheat. And even though there are strong regulations in place against genetically engineered (GE) wheat, there still have been detections of it around the world, including in the U.S.
There’s really no reason why you should avoid pastas and pasta sauces when there are other more nutritious sources available – without all the unnecessary ingredients and unnatural processes.
