On April 30, The Kamut Association of North America announced that its Kamut Pasta was awarded the Low-Glycemic Seal of Approval by the The Glycemic Research Institute of Washington, D.C.
According to the company’s press release, Kamut Pasta, a whole-grain noodle made of the grain by the same name, is 100-percent organic and is made without the pesticides, artificial fertilizers or chemicals used in processed foods. Kamut also stated that foods with a low glycemic index release more slowly into the body, which helps to balance blood sugars and decrease appetite.
Studies have shown this to be true. Research published in the March 1999 issue of Pediatrics demonstrated that athletes and health-conscious individuals who ate high-glycemic foods consumed 81 percent more calories overall than those who ate foods with a low glycemic index.
