Product information

Plant and Process
Dry semolina pasta is made from durum wheat and water and is produced by extrusion or lamination and then a drying process. The pasta production process does not require additives and preservatives: it is drying process that guarantees the conservation. Every year, the Barilla Group produces about 1.000.000 tons of pasta in 5 countries (Italy, Greece, Turkey, United State and Mexico) and 8 plants: environmental impacts are presented for each country except for Mexico. 

The Product
Products included in the analysis are Classic semolina pasta cuts (spaghetti, penne, fusilli, etc.); Piccolini (miniatures of classic semolina cuts); Specialità (reginette, orecchiette, ruote, etc.). Shape is the only feature differentiating these products, since they are all produced using as only ingredients water and semolina.

The following products are excluded from this declaration since, aside from the use of semolina and water, they are produced with other ingredients: egg pasta in any shape; filled pasta (tortellini, etc.); special varieties of pasta with ingredients different from durum wheat products, e.g. Piccolini with Veggies; whole wheat semolina pasta. Furthermore durum wheat dry pasta not packed in paperboard boxes or sold with other label is excluded.
