Until the sixties years the crafters (turronargios) made by hand one few quantity of product at home, following traditional techniques. They sold the nougat by themselves all around in the island, during the fairs.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Quality
Genuine raw materials, ancient family recipes and traditional techniques: this is our idea about the quality. The heart of our manufactory production is the classical nougat on the trade distinguished by brands Puneddu, Tonara, Arasulè.
To make our classical nougat we use just only high quality honey of the best productions; we use walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds of superior quality; we don’t use sugar, glucose syrup and preserves. We select the dried fruit by hand one by one eliminating the seeds with every single defect.
We work one little quantity every single time in portion lots of 60 Kg. The quality is for us one daily use, it is one philosophy that born by hambition to make the most good nougat and to bring it in every home without renouncing at the real genuine taste.
And the quality has just one judge it is your palate.

Clarity and Transparency
It has always been our tradidion in the describing label of our nougat , also when this procedure wasn’t obliged, is noted the great quantity of dried fruit that every packaging contents.
It is indicated the minimum quantity of almonds (50% – 55%), hazelnuts (50% – 55%) and walnuts (44%). In this way the customer knows what he eats and from where the product comes, the customer knows that is not buying one sugar bar together with a bit quantity of almond but extra high quality of one original nougat bar.

Seriousness
Our nougat is one product with only just three ingredients: dried fruit, honey and egg white ( 1%)
Any nougat on the external part and not like ingredient It contents the ostia (max 1%). We don’t use food preservatives, we don’t use sugar, we don’t use glucose syrup in our nougat is present just sugar of the honey.

The expiration date on the packaging is short and sure, it is shorter than nougat produced by others factories.
