Here in America, parents choose Barilla Pastina for their young children because it is made from 100% highest quality durum wheat; is enriched with essential nutrients, such as thiamin, iron, riboflavin and niacin; and is easily digested. Grown-ups love the deliciously nutty flavor of Barilla Pastina, too, especially in soups and simple broths.
