Poggio Solivo offers biscuits and confectionery specialties Made in Italy, baked using carefully selected ingredients.
Our products are daily handmade following traditional methods, using natural and high-quality raw ingredients: that is why they are healthy, tasty and suitable for everyone, especially for people who care about their well-being and for those with special dietary requirements.
Our commitment is to offer you balanced, healthy and digestible products.
All of Poggio Solivo’s products are:
All our preparations have no wheat flour. Used flours only derive from rice, corn and buckwheat.
Instead of animal fats, such as butter and milk, we prefer to use vegetable raw materials, such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil and cocoa butter.
We prefer simple raw materials, healthy and - when possible – coming from local surroundings, selected among the best agricultural and agri-food activities of the area.
Welcome! My name is Diana and I would like to tell you how Poggio Solivo was born.
One day I discovered to have intolerances to several ingredients, contained in almost all of everyday foods. When facing such a circumstance, one might feel objectively disoriented: on one hand there is a need for a radical change in diet, but on the other hand it is hard to give up the incredible set of tastes, gestures, scents, rites and conviviality that every Italian associates to food. And, above all, people like me who have always had a sweet tooth, cannot give up their beloved pastries, especially homemade ones!
Well, I think the secret is not to get discouraged: so I decided to stand up, take the book of family old recipes, and bring them to a new life, by changing the ingredients according to the new requirements. Where I found written “wheat”, I used rice and corn, buckwheat sometimes; instead of “butter”, I used local Extra Virgin Olive Oil; instead of “milk”, I put a beverage made from rice, and so on. Day by day, try after try, my cookies have achieved a taste comparable to traditional ones but, in addition, they are healthier and more digestible for those with special dietary requirements. The end of this story – or I would better say its beginning! - is that today I finally have the opportunity to share these products and this experience with all of you, and I am really glad of it!– Diana D.G.
