The brand name for a type of grain that is closely related to durum wheat and is often considered a specialty grain. Kamut kernels are 2 to 3 times larger than a typical wheat kernel. The grain has a nutty, buttery flavor and is sold as a whole grain, as flour, and in the form of flakes. Kamut wheat is organically grown and is highly nutritious providing high levels of protein, niacin, thiamine, zinc, magnesium, iron, and riboflavin. The delicious chewy grain is excellent in soups, salads, pilafs, or savory side dishes. Kamut wheat is also found in commercially prepared cereals, crackers, and breads. The flour should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer, but whole grain Kamut wheat keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry location. It usually lasts longer than whole-grain wheat because it has a lower moisture content than wheat. Kamut wheat is usually found in health food and specialty shops.
