Why its so great!

Most Kamut is grown in southern Saskatchewan or the upper Great Plains regions of North America. We are keeping it local and healthy! Kamut is the high energy wheat that doesn't drain your bodies' energy to digest.

An Idea for Preparation

The whole kernels, sometimes called kamut berries, are two to three times the size of wheat kernels. They are a little chewy when cooked, so are often better mixed with other grains, or in soups and casseroles. To cook, use 3 parts water to 1 part kernel (ex: 3 cups water and 1 cup kamut kernel), bring to boil with a few pinches of sea salt, then reduce heat to low and let simmer covered for 1 1/2 hours or more until tender. Alternatively, soak the kernels overnight, and then cook for 30-40 minutes until tender.

Healthy Benefits

Kamut – the high energy wheat! Kamut grain is twice the size of durum wheat and has a higher nutritional value. Specifically, it has more protein and is higher in vitamins (vitamins B1, B2, E and niacin) and minerals (iron, magnesium, phosphorus, selenium and zinc). Kamut has about 30% more protein than standard wheat, but has lower fibre. Kamut provides 100% of the daily recommended intake for selenium in just 2-3 servings. Kamut products also rank low on the glycemic index. Low glycemic foods are very important for diabetics, dieters and athletes who looks for foods that do not stimulate insulin and fat storage.

For many people with wheat allergies, Kamut has become a go-to grain. Kamut is known as "the wheat you can eat." most people with allergic reactions to common wheat can take in Kamut without any discomfort or allergic reaction. Kamut is a heirloom grain that originated in Egypt.
