What is TIMILÌA - Ancient Sicilian wheat.
The Timilìa is a type of durum endangered wheat, typical of the center of Sicily. It represents the biodiversity Sicil-Mediterranean and is the result of thousands years natural selection. The Timilìa has weaker gluten than the other wheat at “high yield”. The use of Timilìa allows us to create products with a low “gluten index”, with a lower structural force. Some studies of ancient type of wheat show a reduced allergenicity to people who suffer from gluten intolerance, other than celiac disease.
The gluten index is a measure of its strength. It is expressed by a percentage that indicates how much of gluten remains cohesive, if the mixture of flour and water, after removal of the starch, is subjected to mechanical stress.
The grains modern have indices greater more than 90% .
Ideal for bread, pasta, cakes, pizza .
