khorasan wheat, in addition to always being grown organically and preserved from modification or hybridization, is an excellent source of protein, fiber, zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamin B1 (thiamin) and vitamin PP (niacin). It is also high in many minerals such as selenium, copper, manganese and molybdenum. These nutrients have many benefits including contribution to normal cognitive function, normal metabolism, maintaining normal blood pressure and protection against oxidative stress.
khorasan wheat has an extremely diverse phenolic profile. Phenols are a family of molecules that have gained much attention as they also have strong antioxidant properties and can protect against many degenerative human diseases.
khorasan wheat has a high level of carotenoids which are another family of strong antioxidants and are likely responsible for the rich golden color of the grain and flour.
