kamut-is-a-healthy-whole-grainKamut is full of vitamins E, B, omega-3 fatty acids, and contains 40% more protein than regular wheat. Kamut is extremely high in manganese, a nutrient the body needs to support the nervous system, regulate metabolism, help absorb calcium for stronger bones, and regulate blood sugar levels. People who eat foods that are high in manganese, are less apt to develop arthritis, osteoporosis, or diabetes. Kamut is also high in magnesium, which helps keep bones healthy, and regulate the body’s level of minerals like potassium and zinc. Last but not least, kamut is rich in niacin, which is necessary to produce hormones and help support a healthy nervous system. Niacin is sometimes known as B-3; all of the B vitamins are known for metabolizing carbohydrates, fats, and protein. Look for pastas and breads that are made with Kamut to replace your foods containing wheat.
