Polenta is a dish of boiled cornmeal that originates from Northern Italy. Its soft and creamy texture makes it great for a variety of dishes and recipes.
Natura e Alimenta’s polenta corn is grown by a family-owned company who have converted to biodynamic for more than 20 years.
Their farm is located in the Italian Canavese, an area crossed by several rivers that originate from the protected Gran Paradiso National Park.
Harvested corns are transformed into cornmeal in a historic mill located right next to the farm. As a bonus, freshness is preserved too!
Natura e Alimenta’s polenta is produced at a gluten-free plant which undergoes periodical strict checks and chemical testing-all the way from raw material to finished product.
The Nature e Alimenta Consortium supports waste reduction efforts through recycling waste products. They also use clean renewable energy sources, with all of its electricity certified as renewable from sources such as wind, water, sun and geothermal heat.
In addition to organic and Demeter certification, Natura e Alimenta products are certified Kosher, Biosuisse, IFS and more, promising premium quality and safety.
