Eden Organic Parsley Garlic Ribbons provide the flavor and nourishment of organic parsley and organic garlic with the finest organic patent durum flour. Golden amber durum wheat Triticum aestivum is the most sought after pasta making grain in the world, favored for its excellent nutrition and ability to create a smooth firm texture. This grain is USA high plains grown on family farms committed to building vital soil, cleansing the environment, and producing the safest most nutritious food.
Eden Organic Parsley Garlic Ribbons are small batch hand crafted at the Eden Organic Pasta Company, a Detroit landmark employing traditional pasta making techniques and vintage Italian equipment since 1923, and the first food production facility in North America to be third party certified organic. Organic golden amber durum wheat is freshly ground at our organic, AIB rated Superior mill. The flour is slowly, thoroughly kneaded with pure water and organic parsley and organic garlic. To form ribbons the dough first goes through a series of rollers that repeatedly laminates or folds the dough over itself. After the sheet of dough has been laminated eight times creating a light and even texture, it is fed between stainless steel cutters to form the desired width, then cut to length. The ribbons go through an initial hot steam dryer to reduce moisture slowly, then to the drying room for about 16 hours. The pasta is packaged in a reclosable box, with a delicious recipe and photo from Eden's kitchen printed on the back.
All Eden Organic Pasta is packaged in boxes made from recycled and recyclable paperboard, one of the most environmentally friendly packages available. According to the 100 percent Recycled Paperboard Alliance (RPA100.com), "Fourteen trees are saved for each ton of paperboard converted to 100 percent recycled paperboard. Trees are critical to the sequestration of CO2 (a greenhouse gas) in North America. For each ton of paperboard converted to 100 percent recycled paperboard, an equal amount of recovered fiber has been diverted from municipal landfills. Production of 100 percent recycled paperboard uses 50 percent less energy compared to virgin grades of paperboard, thus significantly reducing the greenhouse gases released into the environment."
