On October 25th, the world comes together to celebrate a special day. Kamut International invites everyone to dive into the exceptional taste and sensory experience of KAMUT® brand wheat this World Pasta Day. Boasting extraordinary nutritional properties and a unique, incomparable, and unforgettable taste, pasta made with KAMUT® wheat will elevate your dining experience to new heights.
Often misunderstood or avoided due to its high-carb component, pasta is, in fact, a significant source of healthy nutrition, aligning perfectly with the principles of Mediterranean cuisine. “We want to remind everyone that pasta is not only delicious, but also a source of good nutrition,” Trevor Blyth, Kamut International President, said, adding, “As we celebrate World Pasta Day, we want to encourage a correct narrative around pasta, emphasizing that it can be part of a healthy diet and a source of good energy providing nutrition.”
At the heart of KAMUT® wheat pasta’s superior quality is the meticulous growing and processing of the grain. This care and attention helps to ensure that the final product achieves the perfect balance of optimal cooking, aroma, and flavor with every single serving.
Today, KAMUT® wheat pasta is available in various shapes, including the ever-popular spaghetti, making it easy to incorporate into family favorite meals. Leading producer of artisan organic pasta, Pastificio Felicetti, has been using KAMUT® Brand Wheat since 2000. Felicetti was initially won over by the incredible flavor profile that KAMUT® wheat offers, underscoring the other exceptional qualities of KAMUT® wheat and its place in modern, health-conscious cooking.
From a nutritional standpoint, KAMUT® Brand Wheat, as a “Still Ancient™” grain offers a great tasting, healthy, and nutritious alternative to modern wheats, which are often today associated with digestive and dietary issues. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN), Sharon Palmer, says, “Each KAMUT® Brand Wheat kernel packs an impressive punch of nutrients—notably fiber and protein—but also a host of health-promoting vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, B vitamins thiamin and niacin, selenium, copper, and manganese. These nutrients contribute to many potential health benefits, from helping cognitive function and metabolism to supporting normal blood pressure and a thriving gut microbiome.” Additionally, evidence suggests that some people with wheat sensitivities who cannot tolerate modern wheat may better handle ancient wheat varieties, such as KAMUT® Brand Wheat.
This World Pasta Day, savor the richness of pasta made with KAMUT® Brand Wheat, a culinary icon, and a source of healthy nourishment.
