About Bronze Drawn Pasta
Bronze drawn dies (used to produce various shapes) are used traditionally in the production of Gragnano PGI pasta. They are synonymous with quality as they give the pasta a rough surface which allows the sauce to coat the pasta better. By extruding the pasta slowly through the die, excessive heating is avoided and the pasta does not begin to cook, preventing the Maillard reaction (caramelisation of sugars) in the starch. Pasta produced in this way retains its organoleptic properties and its natural porousness, allowing the correct release of starch which is not possible with pasta made using teflon dies. The pasta is then dried at low temperatures (to protect the wheat protein, lycine).
