Our standard Pasta is made from Australian grown Durum Wheat. The wheat is milled into semolina, then mixed with water and extruded into the pasta shapes we know and love, like spaghetti or fettuccine. The pasta is then dried, this lower water activity gives it a naturally longer shelf life to be enjoyed.
All San Remo standard Pasta is produced at our facility in Windsor Gardens, South Australia.
Our Wholemeal Pasta is made from Wholemeal Durum Wheat Semolina. However, it may contain traces of egg from shared equipment.
The majority of our dry pasta is suitable to be enjoyed by Vegans. The exception to this would be our Dry Pasta – Egg products (i.e. NIDI range) and our Fresh Pasta products.
Each San Remo Pasta is clearly labelled with an ingredient listing on the back of the pack.
As dried pasta has a shelf life of up to 5 years, we are not required to display a ‘best before’ date on our packs.
You can find a production date on all San Remo Pasta packaging, displayed in the Julian date format of YDDD – The first number representing the year and last three the day of that year. E.g. 1026 would be the 26th day of 2011 or 26/01/2011.
Every effort is made during processing to monitor and maintain a consistent looking San Remo pasta product. The wheat our pasta is made from is a natural raw material, so will always be subject to some seasonal variation.
Due to drought conditions in many Australian wheat growing areas, the wheat harvested during this period has produced flour substantially darker than previous years.
