The hardest of all U.S. wheat classes, U.S. durum has a rich amber color and high gluten content. Hard Amber Durum (HAD) sets the “gold standard” for premium pasta products, couscous and some Mediterranean breads.
For the Miller
Durum is a large, very hard kernel with the potential for very high extraction of high quality, low ash semolina that is ideal for fine pasta.
For the Baker
For consumers of pasta and couscous, durum helps deliver excellent color and texture.
