ABC's

  • Shape: ABC's
  • Description: Also known as alphabet pasta, ABCs are cut into shapes that match the letters of the English alphabet. ABCs are most widely used in soups and broths, and while typically manufactured with ingredient blends designed to withstand the rigors of canning, can also be manufactured for other applications.

Details

APPLICATIONS

A pasta's ingredient blend is a major factor in determining its application suitability. To ensure pastas meet your needs, reference the ingredients used in its manufacture, in many cases, blends can be customized to your specifications.

INGREDIENTS

Different shape and ingredient blends define a pasta's characteristics, which may include cook time, processing durability and more. Applications describe the most suitable and common uses for various pastas.

Thickness

For ABCs (alphabet pastas), the positions of measurement for thicknesses are the distances between cuts. Measurements are taken using either precision digital calipers or point micrometers.

Width

Because ABCs (alphabet pastas) are letter forms of varying but minimal thicknesses, the only measurements needed are for thicknesses and lengths.

Length

The lengths of ABCs (alphabet pastas) are determined as the longest distances that can be measured along unique letter forms. Measurements are taken using precision digital calipers.

Moisture

To assure specified moisture, two batch samples are ground, weighed, heated in an air oven, placed in a desiccator and then re-weighed. Results are validated using two moisture validation machines.
