Already known in ancient times, soft wheat was one of the first plants to be regularly grown by sedentary populations. It is an autumn-spring cereal, grown in Italy in accordance with organic farming regulations.
In terms of crop rotation, this cereal is generally inserted in rotation with legumes and cruciferous vegetables in order to add to the organic substances in the soil, boosting its fertility. Organic fertilisers are mainly used in the pre-sowing phase to heighten the properties of the soil, if necessary. The methods used to limit the development of weeds are false sowing and subsequent mechanical weeding by harrowing.
Making the dough involves two distinct phases. First, an emulsion is created using extra virgin olive oil and sugars to ensure that the end product offers the right crumbliness. This is then mixed with the flour. Once ready, the dough is inserted into the press where it is shaped with a mould. The biscuit is baked in the oven and then slowly cooled so as not to alter the final flavour of the product.
