Semolina is the coarse, purified wheat middlings (intermediate milling stage) of durum wheat mainly used in making couscous, pasta, and sweet puddings. The term semolina is also used to designate coarse middlings from other varieties of wheat, and sometimes other grains (such as rice or corn) as well.
Semolina is derived from the Italian word 'semola' which means bran. Semolina can be made into porridge when cooked in water (or milk) and eaten as a warm breakfast cereal. It has a distinctive yellow colour, due to the presence of carotenoids (naturally occurring pigments).

Semolina is made from one of the hardest types of wheat which gives semolina a high protein. It is used in breads and pastas as a structural element that traps in moisture and as a food source for yeast.

Semolina is one of the few flours that has been used for thousands of years in both sweet and savoury cooking, from cakes and pastries to homemade pasta.

Semolina is our most finely-ground flour, which makes it perfect for pasta, breads, and crackers. Organic semolina is the coarse, purified wheat middlings of durum wheat mainly used in making couscous, pasta, and sweet puddings.
