Organic Kamut grain is a type of durum wheat, and in Central Asia, they mostly call it Khorasan wheat. It’s a whole grain that used to be popular centuries ago. It’s said it was served to the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt and archeologists find some of it in their pyramids. Today, Food To Live brings this food of the old nobility to your table. Our Organic Wheat is nutritious, delicious, and an excellent addition to any healthy diet.
Organic Kamut Cereal: Benefits for the Diet
An organic wheat berry is a whole grain at its best. It has about the same amount of calories as regular wheat, but much more protein and a higher level of essential minerals. Like wheat, Kamut berries can be used to grow your batch of organic Kamut wheatgrass. However, the best way to enjoy it is to eat delicious meals with cooked Kamut flakes.
As the grain provides 11 grams of protein and 7 grams of fiber in every cup of cooked product, you can include it in a weight management plan. Add in its nutrient content, and you’ll see that it’s one of the healthiest whole grains available.
Note that organic Kamut wheat has gluten, so people with sensitivity should avoid it.
Organic Kamut Nutritional Value
Organic Kamut contains almost all essential micro and macronutrients in varying amounts. It has the highest levels of Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Selenium, Magnesium, Manganese
As this whole grain is similar to regular wheat in properties, it makes a good substitute for it in all recipes.
Ideas to Enjoy Organic Kamut Flakes
People use this food in many ways, including making beer, breakfast cereals, and milling it into good organic Kamut flour. The latter is used to make a variety of cookies, bread, and snacks. Today you can also find organic Kamut pasta in the majority of grocery stores. They say that Kamut spaghetti is particularly delicious as the rich flavor of the grain complements your dish.
However, organic Kamut grain takes a long time to cook, even longer than brown rice. You should pre-soak it for several hours or overnight. Then, cook at a simmer (do not boil!) for about two hours.
Considering how fast-paced modern life is, such cooking procedure is very inconvenient.
Food To Live offers an easy solution as our Organic Kamut comes in the form of flakes. It means you can cook it much faster, but its nutritional value is almost the same.
Unlike sweetened organic Kamut cereal, our flakes can be used for cooking any sweet or savory dish. They will taste best in granolas and muesli. You can include them in grain bars and other tasty baked goods. They will also be a great ingredient for a stew, soup, or curry.

How to Sprout KAMUT® Khorasan Wheat at Home
- Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of seed, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all.
- Allow seeds to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the seeds into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
- Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.
