KAMUT® brand khorasan wheat, in addition to being an ancient grain preserved from hybridization or modification and always organically grown, is an excellent source of protein, fiber, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B1 (thiamin), and vitamin B3 (niacin). It is also high in many minerals such as selenium, copper, manganese, and molybdenum. These nutrients have many benefits including contribution to normal cognitive function, normal metabolism, maintaining normal blood pressure, and protection from oxidative stress. KAMUT® khorasan wheat has an extremely diverse profile of polyphenols. Polyphenols are a family of molecules that have gained much attention as they have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and can protect against many degenerative human diseases. Additionally, KAMUT® khorasan wheat has a high level of carotenoids which are another family of strong antioxidants and are likely responsible for the rich golden color of the grain and flour. For its nutritional qualities and digestibility, KAMUT® khorasan wheat is particularly suited for athletes, people with an active lifestyle, and generally anyone looking for high quality nutrition. Although the gluten in KAMUT® khorasan wheat is different than found in modern wheat, it is still present and therefore the grain is not suitable for those with celiac disease.
