Good quality dried pasta is dependent on the grade of the semolina flour and the process used to make it. High quality semolina flour means your pasta will be higher in protein and other nutrients and it will taste better. The drying process used affects the nutritional value. Pasta that is dried slowly at a lower temperature will retain more of the wheat’s nutrients.
