Kamut® Khorasan is an ancient grain that has not been changed though modern breeding programs. The Kamut® trademark is a guarantee of receiving the unhybridized unmodified, and non-gmo ancient Khorasan wheat, always organically grown, that meets high purity, nutrition, and quality standards. All of our Kamut comes from Fort Benton and is grown right here in Montana.
Most likely originating in Mesopotamia, legends exist of this grain being found in Egyptian tombs. Farmers in Turkey call the grain “Camel’s Tooth” because of its shape. It is about three times larger than most modern wheat, is elongated with a pronounced “hump” and a rich golden color.
Kamut® Khorasan Flour is prized for its nutrition, ease of digestibility, sweet nutty-buttery taste, and firm texture. It is a source of protein, fiber, and vitamins and is high in many minerals. Khorasan is a variety of wheat and has gluten. However, many people with sensitivities to modern wheat report being able to eat KAMUT® brand wheat with no difficulty.
