Travel 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.
