ON OUR NEW PASTA:
Why was a change made to the pasta I know and love?
Over the years FG has seen a sharp increase in demand for our delicious pasta. Our pasta manufacturer has been at capacity for the past few years and has been unable to keep up with our rapid growth.
Because of this, we have moved our pasta production to a high-quality Italian facility that is better equipped to handle our increased demand.
Why is there a slight change to the calories, fiber numbers, look and texture?
Each pasta facility has similar, but slightly different, machinery and processes that it uses. Our new pasta manufacturing facility has been making quality Italian pasta for decades. While most pastas can be made in any standard pasta facility, FG pasta is unique and cannot be made with just any standard machinery.
FG uses high quality specialized ingredients which require specialized machinery to produce our award-winning pasta. In each new facility there are minor process changes and tweaks which are needed to work with our unique ingredients and formulations. Therefore, the same pasta formulation may have a slightly different look and texture (and nutritionals) in each manufacturing facility.
For example, our new facility offers Teflon dies which make the pasta appear smoother and more yellow in appearance. Previously we used bronze dies which gave the pasta a more white and porous structure.
