Alce Nero organic emmer couscous is made exclusively from 100% Italian emmer, cultivated by our farmers. Triticum Dicoccum emmer is one of the most ancient grains cultivated by mankind and originated in the Fertile Crescent over 5000 years ago. Couscous is a typical North African dish. The production process of couscous involves the traditional phases for the preparation of this product, inspired by how it was originally made by North African women at home. It is nothing other than a mixture of semolina and water which is then steamed and dried with hot air.
