Low tech grinding
Low tech grinding, the real whole durum wheat semolina….. Molino De Vita makes its durum wheat semolina as in the good old days, but with one small difference: technology contributes to the optimization of the production process and therefore to the development of better quality products. In particular, the grinding cylinders, brought to low RPMs, work slowly allowing to preserve the integrity of the organoleptic characteristics and the natural fragrance of the product. This is the real whole durum wheat semolina, which has to contain most or all of the parts of the kernel. The product also has a high fibre and vitamin content, as well as a rich variety of minerals, antioxidants and proteins of high biological value.
Sortex Z + optical sorter Strange but true, at Molino De Vita each wheat grain is “peeked at” by more than 155 micro-cameras, a complex operation carried out in order to identify any defective kernels. Once identified, these are reported to the SORTEX Z + colour sorter and are discarded. This step guarantees the purity and authenticity of every product obtained.
Peeling The grain of wheat in purity. Molino De Vita has successfully achieved this goal in 2010, thanks to a new technology that has simplified and optimized the process of decortication, i.e. removal of the kernel from the seed coat before grinding. This operation follows multiple steps so as not to stress the grain and to guarantee the highest standards in product quality.
Differentiated biological Storage No contamination. The Molino De Vita organic products are preserved from production to packaging For this purpose, the company is equipped with two hoppers – the first for the organic product and the second for the conventional one - and a dedicated software that allows to prevent cross contamination during the storage and grinding phases. Furthermore, the organic products are then stored in exclusive silos in order to preserve them.
