Other food of the day – Kamut

on January 10, 2012

“Kamut® is a registered trademark of Kamut International, Ltd., used in marketing products made with a remarkable grain. The new cereal is an ancient relative of modern durum wheat, two to three times the size of common wheat with 20–40% more protein, higher in lipids, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, and a “sweet” alternative for all products that now use common wheat.” Source

“The khorasan wheat which is grown today and sold under the KAMUT® brand name is a heritage grain.” Source
The orign of this ancient wheat is not known for sure, but some researchers believe it was used around 2000 b.c. by ancient Egyptians and other old civilizations.

This wheat is very healthy alternative to other grains that are more known today. It contains a lot of proteins and minerals such as selenium, zinc and magnesium. It is also known to contain many lipids that give you more energy than usual carbohydrates.

Before I tried it I was sceptical about the taste, but I must say that it tastes good. I would say it’s sort of mixture of rice and spelt or something like that. It’s a bit sweet and it feels a bit rubbery when you chew it. But I like it and I’m sure it will be on my menu more often from now on.
