    Gomasio is a preparation of oriental origin made with sesame seeds (goma) and salt (shio), widely used in macrobiotic cuisine and in Ayurvedic medicine for its therapeutic properties. Used instead of salt, it reduces the sodium intake in our diets. It is rich in mineral salts, especially calcium, and in proteins, B vitamins, vitamins A, D, E and PP. In addition, it contains essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6, proving to be a valid aid for the well-being of the cardiovascular system. In summer it is an excellent ally against the heat, because it limits thirst and helps stabilize the level of sodium and potassium in the blood.

    Gomasio Dolci Evasioni uses only Ispica Sesame. This territory, located in the province of Ragusa, preserves an ancient production of sesame, introduced in Sicily at the time of the Arab domination. The Ispica variety was selected two centuries ago by local farmers and has a small seed, amber color and intense flavor. Ispica sesame has always been known, sought after and appreciated for its high quality. Today the cultivation is reduced to a few hectares cultivated by some producers who still apply an entirely manual cultivation technique in small plots of land. Thanks to these characteristics, Ispica Sesame was recently recognized as a Slow Food Presidium.

    Another distinctive note of our Gomasio are the herbs of the Iblei mountains. Among the varieties that we grow in our countryside, we have selected oregano, rosemary, sage and thyme, which give the dressing a unique aroma, with the unmistakable scent of Sicily.

    Fragrant, with a strong and at the same time delicate flavor, Gomasio with Dolci Evasioni herbs is perfect for seasoning and giving character to raw and steamed vegetables, cereals, salads, fish and meats. It is ideal for flavoring and decorating sauces, spreads and velvety creams. Excellent on bread and canapés, even without the addition of oil.

    Gomasio with Dolci Evasioni herbs received the Silver medal ("excellent" product) at the International Taste Awards 2020.

    L'Arcolaio brings the authentic taste of Sicily directly to your doorstep. From the tradition of marzipan to carob syrup, they offer a wide selection of high-quality Sicilian products. But L'Arcolaio is much more than an online store; it is a social cooperative with a special mission.

    Founded in 2003, this cooperative promotes employment for inmates by managing a productive activity within the Syracuse prison. Over the years, they have developed the registered trademark "Dolci Evasioni," and their products have become known throughout the country through specialized stores in organic products, fair trade shops, and solidarity purchasing groups.

    In 2014, with the support of the Val di Noto Community Foundation, the "Frutti degli Iblei" project had been launched, introducing new categories of products such as aromatic herbs, flavored salt, and dried vegetables. With a strong commitment to using organic raw materials and fair trade practices, L'Arcolaio promotes environmental sustainability, cultural diversity, and contributes to the evolution of the prison system through concrete work integration projects.
