Bread with Protected Designation of Origin Bread of Altamura or Pane di Altamura


The bread of Altamura is the food symbol of the peasant culture of Alta Murgia (Apulia, Italy).
It's a long history: the first written record of this product dates back to the first century B.C.: is the Latin poet Horatio to mention it in its Satire, where he calls "the best bread in the world" so tat travelers carried with them a good supply before start theri journey.
The same used to do the shpherds and farmers before leaving for pastures and field. Anciently this type of bread was kneded by women in their home, marked with the initials of the householder, and led for baking into public ovens.


The quality of PDO Altamura Bread is guaranted by the Consortium for the Protection, invested by the control, promotion and enhancement funtions of the PDO Altamura Bread, as well as guarding against any form of counterfelting.

The culture yeast is the main ingredient of PDO Altamura bread. It is a sourdough starter that confers to the product distinctive sensory properties and a long shelf-life. Other ingredients are water, certified by Acquedotto pugliese, sea salt and durum wheat
re-milled semolina derived from durum wheat cultivars “appulo”, “arcangelo”, “duilio”, “simeto”, which are cultivated within the territory of the following municipal areas: Altamura, Gravina in Puglia, Poggiorsini, Spinazzola, Minervino Murge.


Once all the ingredients have been mixed together, the dough is left to rise. After being cut into smaller pieces, it is shaped by hand and left to rest. This operation is repeated two times. Before being baked, in wood burning or gas fired ovens, each loaf is turned over and flattened with a light pressure of the hand on one side. During the last phase of baking, the oven door is left open in order to allow the vapors to release and allow the formation of a crispy and golden crust


PDO Altamura bread comes in two traditional shapes, weighing from 0.5 kg: the first, called “u sckuanète”, referes to a sort of turned-over bread. The second, known as “a cappidde de prèvete” (meaning priest’s hat shaped”) is flatter than the first.


In 2003, it was the first bread awarded Protected Designation of Origin by the European Union, under the category “bread and bakery products”. The Protected Designation of Origin, whose acronym is P.D.O., is a mark covering agricultural products and foodstuffs, which are produced, processed and prepared in a given geographical area, using recognized know-how and thus acquiring unique properties.
