Know About Durum Wheat Manufacturing Process

Durum wheat is a tetraploid species of wheat, This is a second most cultivated group of wheat after the common wheat. It is developed by the stilted selection of domesticated emmer wheat. Durum wheat semolina is thick and rich in protein and gluten. Therefore, it is considered ideal for manufacturing pasta. It is also used in the making of bread in Meddeteraninan and North Africa. But, it is crucial to separate the barn from semolina.

Milling of durum is a complex process, which involves repetitive grinding and sieving. A proper purification may lead to the maximum yield of semolina and minimize the barn powder.


We all may think that we need acres of agricultural land to grow durum wheat, but a small plot of a home garden is enough to produce enough grain for a household. A few pounds of seed can yield eight times more grain. Durum wheat should be planted as soon as the ground is worked. As it is a spring crop you should be sowing seed by the spring. The ideal pH of soil for the cultivation f durum wheat is 6.4.


After sowing the seed there isn't much work after all. You must consider the gap between the two plants and water per week. The ideal distance between the two plants is one inch or 2 1/2 cm. Wait until few months till the time of harvest and thresh.
