Travel back in time with Kamut grain, and ancient variety of wheat that was only recently rediscovered by modern-day farmers. Whole grain Kamut berries are a nutritious source of protein iron and fiber, and a tasty addition to stews and salads.
This 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 firm texture and rich, nutty flavor make this heirloom grain a great addition to pilafs, soups, and cold salads.
