Tritium durum, a wheat with a high gluten content, cultivated mainly in Mediterranean climates, and used chiefly to make pastas.
Superb milling qualities, test weight, and color along with low moisture and high semolina yield provide wheat millers a quality product.
Durum Wheat Overview:
- Durum wheat is the only species of wheat that is widely cultivated today.
