The characterisation of traditional Italian pasta obtained by mixing amounts of toasted whole meal with re‐milled semolina and other ingredients was obtained by means of physico‐chemical, rheological, mechanical, sensory and image analyses. The toasted meal showed higher ash, fibre and protein contents than re‐milled semolina. The replacement of percentages of re‐milled semolina with the toasted meal and soft flour increased tenacity and decreased extensibility and strength, making the dough less suitable for pasta‐making. The P/L values were indices of high starch damage. The replacement of part of re‐milled semolina and water with toasted whole wheat meal, soft flour and eggs increased the optimal cooking time and the amount of water absorbed during cooking but made the other cooking parameters worse. The image analysis provided evidence of the changes induced by the use of toasted …
