Jufka (Traditional Pasta)

Jufka (traditional pasta)

Production is based on household or women groups who produce and dry the product (usually in group work).

Local producers typically apply simple packaging and labeling. Jufka are mainly solds through neighborhood shops and minimarkets, however also direct sales to households are common. 





For the production of jufka, rural households normally use locally produced ingredients such as milk, flour and eggs.
All of our raw materials are grown organically on small family farms in remote hillside locations. We are proud to present to you bionaturæ, the premier line of tradition.

Pasta, especially whole wheat pasta, is known to have several health benefits. Whole wheat contains considerable amounts of minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium and manganese.  

Pasta contains complex carbohydrates, which release energy slowly compared to sugar, providing energy for a longer time. Assorted pastas are rich in essential nutrients such as iron and vitamin B. The amount of protein in pasta depends on the type of flour used . If it is made from durum wheat, the pasta contains protein and gluten.
