Organic Kamut Flour
I really love the Kamut flour for a healthier hand made pasta. Kamut provides you with fiber, a type of carbohydrate, and protein, an essential macronutrient. Protein plays a central role in maintaining strong tissue, and also aids in oxygen transport and immune function, while fiber helps lower your cholesterol, fights type 2 diabetes and maintains digestive health. Each 1-cup serving of cooked kamut contains 10 grams of protein, or 17 percent of the protein requirements for an average 150-pound individual, according to intake guidelines published by Iowa State University Extension. A cup of cooked kamut also provides you with 7.4 grams of dietary fiber, which is 28 percent of the daily intake recommended for women and 19 percent for men.
