Premio Sweet Luganiga

What is luganiga? Luganiga is Italian for “sausage.” You may have seen it called luganega, or in the south of Italy, lucanica or lucania, but it all means the same thing: a long, coiled sausage made from pork shoulder. In Italy, luganiga is not divided into smaller links and is often called “salsiccia a metro,” or “sausage by the meter.”

Why choose Premio Sweet Luganiga Sausage over our many other fine sausage products? The Premio Fresh Sweet Luganiga (sausage in English) contains fennel, which leaves you with a milder yet still savory taste that everyone will appreciate. Some prefer the milder taste of the luganiga sausage all the time, while others enjoy it for a change of pace from a spicier sausage.

Traditional Italian flavor with real imported fennel — no wonder they buy it by the meter in Italy!

Origins of Luganiga

So now that you know what this sweet sausage with fennel is all about, where exactly does it come from? While we can’t say definitively, the Italian people have some ideas. As one might expect, the theories people have on the origins of luganiga are often based on where they come from.

Those from the south of Italy will often say that luganiga comes from the southern region of Basilicata, a region that was called Lucania during the Roman Empire. Those from the north may insist it comes from the northern Lombardy region. The Lombardy version is probably the best-known and is what our sweet luganiga with fennel resembles.

The town of Monza is most famous for their luganiga, where they prepare it with fennel and garlic. The Basilicata region also makes a luganiga, most famously in the town of Latronico, where they may make a version with fennel or a spicier version with red pepper flakes.

All About Fennel

And what about fennel, this delightful, crunchy, sweet, white herb with green stalks that you probably pass by every time you go to the grocery store — unless you’re an Italian cook? In addition to making our sweet luganiga sausage taste delicious, it’s one of the healthiest things you can put in your body.

Fennel is loaded with flavonoids, powerful antioxidants that can reduce inflammation and may help prevent cancer. On top of that, fennel is rich in Vitamin C, another crucial antioxidant that one needs in order for your immune system to function properly. If you’re concerned because you’re not drinking enough orange juice, eat more fennel! Fennel has a rich and storied history and, in fact, the famous Greek Battle of Marathon took place on a field covered with fennel plants. Legend had it the Greek Gods delivered knowledge to man in a fennel stalk filled with coal.

Of course, none of that will matter when you bite into a Premio Sweet Luganiga Sausage with Fennel. You’ll just know that it’s delicious!Use our store locator to find where our sweet Luganiga sausage is sold near you!
