Grain Profile

Species: Triticum turgidum spp. turanicum

Flavor: Rich, buttery, nutty

Fun fact: KAMUT is known for its large kernels, about twice the size of common wheat grains.

KAMUT is generally considered to be the fourth ancient wheat after einkorn, emmer, and spelt. Also known as khorasan wheat, for the ancient region in the Fertile Crescent, KAMUT branded wheat is a Montana exclusive. The story goes that a Montana airman sent some seeds home in the late 40s, and it piqued the curiosity of local farmers. Within a few decades, the KAMUT brand was created, ensuring consistent quality and adherance to organic practice.

Today, KAMUT is prized for its flavor and nutrition. It is rich in fiber and lipids, and can contain up to 40% more protein and 65% more amino acids than other wheats. Its flour is of a similar texture to emmer and durum, to which it is closely related, making it an excellent choice for pasta, pizza crust, and sourdough. We like to make breadsticks with it, where its smooth, rich flavor can shine through!
