In Umbria the cultivation of olive trees has ancient origins, starting from the Etruscan age, and it has always been associated with a simple and harmonious lifestyle, that follows the rhythms of nature. That is exactly on the Umbrian hills that in 1850 the history of Frantoio Bartolini started and it has been based on the family business for six generations. The firm started as a small oil mill with animal-drawn machinery and over the years it grew and increased the production, always maintaining the direct control of the production chain of its products. It is thanks to the trace-ability of the production chain that a lot of Bartolinis’ products can boast the “Umbrian” name of origin.
In our land, which is difficult to cultivate because of its unevenness, we seed legumes and cereals. Their processing requires skill, passion and knowledge of the right times, but this devotion rewards us with high- quality products. With this selection of legumes and cereals, we offer a range of traditional products, being careful about nature and an accurate and respectful agriculture.
After our legumes and cereals are harvested, they are immediately cleaned. In our mill, we use a modern stone grinding plant that, working at low temperatures, fully preserves the properties of cereals. We obtain an excellent flour with high-quality nutritional qualities, that presents an irregular granulometry, a high concentration of bran and a total conservation of the germ.
The wholegrain chickpea flour is particularly rich in nutrients, among which complex carbos, proteins, vitamins (A, B1, E), minerals and lipids to a lesser extent.
Thanks to its good ingredients, it is largely used against hypercholesterolaemia, diabetes as a result of the low glycemic index and in the vegan diets.
The product is packaged in a beautiful bag of 500 gr. and imported directly from Italy.
