Grano, Italian for “grain,” is made from specially selected durum wheat that has been lightly pearled to remove part of the outer bran for quicker cooking. Grano has been used in certain regions of southern Italy since the 5th century B.C. While it boasts a similar flavor and texture to al dente pasta, our Grano holds up better during long cooking times and reheating.

  • Mild, pleasant pasta-like flavor profile
  • Incorporate into pilafs, soups and cold salads
  • Top with pasta sauce and pair with chicken, veal or seafood


Add 1 cup of Grano to 2-1/2 cups of water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 35-40 minutes. Yields 3 cups cooked.
