Italian night is a hit in most households, but what happens when you stop eating gluten? Companies like Bionaturae know how difficult it is to give up favorite dishes, which is why it offers both regular and gluten-free pastas. Now everyone can enjoy Italian food at home. Once you have GF pasta in the pantry, the rest is easy. Noodles make a great base for all sorts of sauces—try a fall-inspired mushroom medley with rosemary and thyme, a simple tomato sauce simmered with lots of garlic, or a simmered-all-day bolognese that’s perfect for Sunday supper. Something that makes Bionaturae’s pastas stand out from the pack is the brand’s commitment to shaping the noodles with antique dies. You’ll love how the slightly rugged texture clings to sauces.
The History of Bionaturae
Bionaturae was created more than 15 years ago when a group of young friends—including both Italians and Americans—wanted to bring organic and authentic Italian food to the U.S. Today, the company remains privately owned, and continues to be devoted to quality above all else. In case you were wondering, Bionaturae is pronounced “bee-oh-na-too-ray”), which loosely translates to “organic nature.”
Bionaturae Company Mission
Bionaturae celebrates old world traditions in modern-day kitchens. Every one of its product (from fruit spreads to balsamic vinegar) is crafted by food artisans who use timeless production methods that have been handed down through generations.
Benefits of Bionaturae
When it comes to bringing people together, Bionaturae is always proud to be at your table. Its pastas are imported from Tuscany and are created using time-honored techniques like slow-drying the noodles at low temperatures, and shaping them with antique bronze dies for a rougher texture that absorbs sauces better than conventional options. All of Bionaturae’s raw materials are organically grown on small family farms in Italy’s remote hillsides. Whether you choose their tomatoes (which are packaged in BPA-free linings without added sugar), pastas, complex olive oil, aged balsamic vinegar, or hand-harvested fruit spreads, every product will bring out your inner Italian.
Top Bionaturae Products
