Spinach Orzo is a rice-shaped made from durum wheat flour. Its natural green color comes from dried spinach that is ground and added to the dough. The natural firm texture and unique color of this pasta makes it a flexible and versatile ingredient that is resilient to long cooking times and easily incorporated with other ingredients.
Originating in Italy, Orzo was created to provide an alternative to rice while still boasting the appealing pasta flavor and texture already prevalent in Mediterranean diets. Orzo means “barley” in Italian, most likely referring to the pasta’s grain-like shape.
Enriched durum semolina flour (flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), spinach. Contains wheat. Manufactured on equipment that uses eggs.
