What is the bronze-drawing?
The die is a plate with holes of different size and shape, which serves to obtain the different shapes of pasta. The Sorrentino factory, as tradition has it, the mixture passes through special bronze dies. The nobility of the bronze gives the pasta roughness and porosity, the so-called "Arraggiatura", allowing, at the time of the jump in the pan, to collect all the flavors and colors of the desired seasoning.
What is the slow drying at low temperatures?
The slow drying at low temperatures gives the pasta the recognizable pale yellow color and preserves the taste and nutritional value of the raw material, such
as lysine, a protein component present in a quantity rather low in durum wheat, which deteriorates gradually as the temperature of drying increases. The slow drying at low temperature is crucial for a healthy diet so as to the digestibility of the pasta itself.
