This bread is one of the healthiest. It is an interesting alternative to traditional wheat. In addition, it is integral and sourdough-based. It is one of the few breads on the market made exclusively from whole kamut flour. Its taste and texture are unique.
Kamut, which means wheat in ancient Egyptian, is in fact the commercial name of a Khorasan wheat cultivar (triticum turgidum) whose agro-biological cultivation must follow precise and rigorous specifications (see www.kamut.com for more information). information). Khorasan wheat is an ancestor of durum wheat (it also lacks 14 chromosomes compared to modern wheat). Its ear bears grains three times larger than durum wheat. Each ear is made up of large, long, bumpy kernels. Its particular taste is reminiscent of hazelnut butter, which gives it a mild and slightly sweet flavor.
Kamut is a cereal with great nutritional values that provides only 359 calories per 100 g. It contains 20 to 40% more protein than common wheat, as well as a higher proportion of essential amino acids and unsaturated fatty acids. In addition, its richness in selenium helps fight the formation of free radicals and the appearance of cardiovascular diseases. Kamut also has a very good zinc and magnesium content, which makes it an excellent anti-fatigue food. Finally, its richness in carbohydrates, lipids and potassium gives it a high nutritional value.
Like other varieties of wheat, kamut contains gluten. However, people who are mildly gluten intolerant generally respond better to kamut than to traditional wheat. In fact, several of our customers have adopted this bread as an acceptable substitute.
