Valsugana Flour

In the gastronomic tradition of Tesino and Valsugana, polenta plays a decisive role and is offered with a range of very tasty second courses.

Corn has always been grown in the area, and in particular a very dense wheat variety called Pignolino, which in the trade is considered for the best. From the 1800s to the present, many steps have been taken to obtain a pure seed and to improve the characteristics of "Spin," the grain with the particular hook shape, so much so that in September 1999 the trademark "Farina della Valsugana" was registered.

The flour, with its soft and unmistakable taste, is the product of expert processing and becomes the ideal dish to accompany tasty second courses depending on the season: crispy fried cheese or fresh "tosella," porcini or chanterelle mushrooms, sauerkraut or "verde" (savoy cabbage), smoked meat or roasted "luganeghe" (local kind of sausage).

Valsugana Flour can be found in all supermarkets and stores of typical products in the valley.
