DetailsTravel back in time with Kamut® grain, an ancient variety of wheat that was only recently rediscovered by modern-day farmers. The history of this ancient wheat grain is a bit mysterious. Some say that Noah brought Kamut® kernels along on the ark, hence the nickname “Prophet’s Wheat.” Others call Kamut® grain “King Tut’s Wheat,” claiming it was found in the tomb of an Egyptian pharaoh. Though its origins are debated, there’s no arguing the fact that Kamut® wheat is healthy and delicious.
The plump, golden kernels of whole grain Kamut® Khorasan wheat are a nutritious source of selenium, zinc, magnesium and iron. Kamut® wheat is exceptionally high in protein, containing 7 grams of protein per serving, and a good source of dietary fiber. A nutritional powerhouse, Kamut® grain is perfect for anyone looking for a high protein, low fat addition to their menu.
The firm texture and rich, nutty flavor make this heirloom grain a great addition to pilafs, soups, and cold salads. Unlike some varieties of wheat, Kamut® berries hold their texture well, allowing them to be added to soups and stews early in the cooking process without getting mushy. The pleasant chewiness makes them a delicious, and far more nutritious, substitute for whole kernel corn. Use Kamut® wheat wherever you would use a long grain brown rice for an exciting change of pace.
Our organic Kamut® berries take a little bit longer to cook than some other whole grains, but a few easy tricks can cut down on cooking time immensely. Soaking the grains overnight will reduce cooking time. Alternately, cook a big batch on the weekend and freeze in small, usable portions for quick preparation on a weeknight. No matter how you choose to cook them, these golden grains are well worth the extra effort.

- FINALLY TRIED KAMUT - IT'S GOOD
- I wanted an alternate grain to use due to concerns about arsenic in brown rice. I cooked a test batch of kamut in a rice cooker, on the brown rice setting. It worked, it's good, will use for any dish that I would normally use rice for. At first I wasn't interested because of the long cooking time, but with a rice cooker that problem is solved!
- My favorite grain!
- Kamut is the tastiest grain, with the best texture, and one of the healthiest. I simmer mine for an hour and a half, I find that to be the easiest on my digestion. My favorite breakfast is sauteing some turmeric root powder, cinnamon powder, and cardamom powder in ghee, and pouring it over my kamut. Go grains!
- What a marvellous ...
- What a marvellous discovery Kamut Berries were for me! On their own they have a fine flavour, and being a bit of a larger grain they work a treat when cooked up, cooled and added to salads or even done in a fried rice style or Moroccan pilaf. But my personal favourite is in a mix with an equal part of hull-less barley and twice that amount of brown rice, cooked in just water in a rice cooker, fluf
