Khorasan Triticum turgidum spp. >turanicum is ancient wheat native to Asia Minor and Egypt. It is named Khorasan after the largest province in Persia in its northeast region where it once dominated agriculture. Khorasan in Persian means 'place of the sun.' Other common names are Kamut trademarked in 1990, Camel's Tooth, Oriental, Prophet's, or King Tut's wheat. Introduced to the U.S.A. in Montana in 1949, its golden grains or berries are three times the size of modern wheat. It has the highest protein of all wheat, is closely related to the ancient grain spelt, and is a relative of durum wheat. Eden Organic Kamut Flakes are not wheat free or gluten free. However, because its protein is easier to digest, many sensitive to modern wheat often enjoy this ancient wheat.
Scientists at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center at Tufts University say, "Whole grain helps regulate blood sugar by slowing down the conversion of complex carbohydrates into sugar. In fact, low-glycemic index food such as whole grain reduces hunger and can help to control weight." Scientists at the Agriculture Research Service completed a study of more than 2,000 people concluding, "at least three or more servings of whole grain everyday could reduce the chances of developing metabolic syndrome - a condition marked by a combination of abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, poor blood sugar control, low HDL 'good' cholesterol and high blood fats."
According to the FDA, "Diets rich in whole grain and other plant foods, and low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease and some cancers." Also, "Low fat diets rich in fiber-containing grain products, fruits, and vegetables may reduce the risk of some types of cancer, a disease associated with many factors."
