kamut pasta – makes you horny?

24 Oct

When I received a press release about Kamut pasta – I knew right away that I had to try it. Firstly as a member of slimming world (a terrible member who needs to follow the rules better!) I welcome carbs if matched with the right vegetables, so pasta is always a great choice for me. Secondly the brand have made grand claims about the health benefits, and more surprisingly it has been labelled a powerful aphrodisiac.

To give you a little history on the product, Kamut Pasta is made from Kamut Khorasan which when translated from ancient Egyptian – where the grain originated
from – means “wheat”. This ancient wheat grain has never been genetically modified so it is as pure and healthy as it was when it was first grown over 2000 thousand years ago.

Now back to the fun bit – an aphrodisiac! Due to its high level of protein and mix of minerals Kamut Pasta is said to (in layman’s terms) make people horny. Now, I am not so sure that either myself or my boyfriend need any help in that department but still it seemed like a fun thing to try!

A very unsuspecting box!

Over a week we cooked the conchiglie with courgettes and tomato, the spaghetti with quorn tomato and garlic, made a pasta pesto and pasta salad for lunch. Kamut looks a little different (less starchy) but in fact tastes great. I also think that normal white pasta can make you feel bloated whereas this didn’t. Now, the side effects! Did it make us more horny? The answer is – who the hell knows! Having come back from a holiday we were probably a little more loved up than usual anyway, plus if you eat something that has a claim as such you will probably find sex on your mind more anyhow! Still definitely a fun experiment 🙂

This pasta is available in Ocado and Wholefoods Markets at around £2.99 for a 500g bag. (Actually not too pricey, surprisingly!)

Verdict: 8/10
