Kamut Khorasan Wheat – The Ancient Grain for Modern Life
KAMUT® Khorasan wheat is an ancient wheat, guaranteed under the KAMUT® brand to be always grown certified organic and never genetically modified. Khorasan wheat is prized for its nutrition, ease of digestibility, sweet nutty-buttery taste and firm texture. Compared to most modern wheat it has more protein, amino acids, vitamins and many minerals, especially selenium, zinc and magnesium.
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. It also has a high level of carotenoids and a diverse phenolic profile with strong antioxidant properties that can protect against many degenerative human diseases.
KAMUT® Khorasan is an ancient grain that has not been changed through modern plant breeding programs. Legends exist of this grain being found in Egyptian tombs, hence the nickname “King Tuts Wheat”. Farmers in Turkey call the grain “Camel’s Tooth” because of its shape or the “Prophet’s Wheat”, referring to another legend that Noah brought the grain with him on the ark.
