Savoiardi are a traditional Italian biscuit, with eggs as the main ingredient. Thanks to the simple ingredients used and the complete absence of added fat, Savoiardi are very light, nutritious and easy to digest. They are the traditional biscuit used for making Tiramisù, one of the most famous Italian dessert, as their structure is ideal to absorbe the coffee used as one of the main ingredients. Forno Bonomi has been making Savoiardi since 1850 by following the traditional recipe that requires a minimum of 26% of eggs. Savoiardi are available in 200g, 300g, 400g, 500g, 1,8kg and 5kg packages (ideal for the food service).
