Product of Canada 

Kamut® is an ancient grain and the brand name for khorasan wheat, a large amber wheat grain closely related to durum. Kamut® is appreciated for its smooth, buttery, nutty flavor, and its high protein and nutritional content.

It contains a high mineral concentration especially in selenium, zinc, and magnesium with 20-40% more protein compared to modern-day wheat. It has a higher lipid to carbohydrate ratio, which means the grain produces greater energy and has a natural sweetness to counterbalance the occasional bitterness present in traditional wheat.

Kamut® grain is naturally resistant to pests and can be more easily grown organically than most other types of wheat. This grain is “untouched” by modern plant breeding programs which appear to have sacrificed flavor and nutrition for higher yields dependent upon large amounts of synthetic agricultural inputs.

Even though this wheat variety contains gluten, it has been found to be more easily digestible by people who may have slight allergic tendencies. If you are allergic or sensitive to traditional wheat, this may be an acceptable alternative, but do check with your doctor first before you try it.

Kamut’s flavor and nutritional attributes make it excellent in breads, cereals, cookies, crackers, pastries, waffles and pancakes. The actual wheat grains can be soaked and used in salads. Kamut is also used to make superior pasta.
