We are excited to be getting a truckload of ancient khorasan wheat grain , whole wheat flour and white flour! This wheat will come straight from the mill in Fort Benton, Montana. It is grown in that area of the Northwest and is certified organic. (This is also a primary grain used in the Livestock Feed we have on this order!)
Early Morning Rolls: This morning I made some rolls with the KAMUT Khorasan Wheat. After freshly grinding the long grains, and stirring in the ingredients, I found the dough to be stickier than I’m used to. But, by the time I hand kneaded it, the dough was firming up with good elasticity.
I let it rise 20 mins, then baked it at 375 for 20 mins.
The Result: Well, I had expected it to be a bit dense and strong in bran flavor, but boy was I happily surprised. It was full of rich bready flavor and a lot lighter and fluffier that I had imagined. (The amazing aroma that filled the house awoke my 8 and 4 yr old. Lots of smiles this morning!) Although I wished it had risen a little better, I was really pleased at how well it turned out.
Tomorrow: I hope to do another batch, this time kneading it by machine to see if it will rise a little more. I’ll let you know how it turns out. I am also excited to try this on our family pizza nights. I have my suspicions it will make a great, nutritious pizza dough! – Jason

Read this article from KAMUT International about the amazing grain they grow-
Flavor and Natural Goodness
This ancient grain is often described as having a “buttery rich, nutty flavor” and has a wide variety of uses. It’s great in baked goods, breakfast cereals and pasta. We sell KAMUT® as a whole grain, whole grain flour and white flour. Just use KAMUT® flour in place of, or mixed with, wheat flour in your favorite recipe to add flavor, color and nutrients. Sprouters tell us the flavor of juice from KAMUT® wheat grass is much sweeter than ordinary wheat. KAMUT® wheat is higher in protein than ordinary wheat and has more essential lipids and amino acids.
Only Organically Grown
Every kernel of KAMUT® brand khorasan wheat is certified organic. We contract with family farmers to grow organically certified KAMUT® wheat mostly in Montana because this environment most nearly duplicates its ancestral environment in Egypt. Because KAMUT® wheat has never been hybridized with any modern wheat varieties it is ideally suited for organic production. Test plots show it responds best to natural fertilizer like “green manure” (legumes that take nitrogen from the air and put them into the soil) rather than commercial – natural gas manufactured – nitrogen fertilizer.
Of course, KAMUT® wheat has never had its genetic makeup altered artificially so it is always free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs also called genetically engineered, GE). We’ve never even tried to improve the grain through “natural” plant breeding techniques. KAMUT® wheat comes naturally to you as nature intended it.
KAMUT® brand khorasan wheat is higher in protein and many minerals, especially selenium, zinc, and magnesium compared to modern wheat. Due to the unusually high content of selenium, which is a mineral known for its high antioxidant capacity, KAMUT® khorasan wheat can be called a good source of selenium.
Because of its higher percentage of lipids, which produce more energy in the body than carbohydrates, KAMUT® khorasan wheat can be described as “high energy wheat.” Athletes, people with busy lives or just anyone looking for high energy food will find products made with KAMUT® khorasan wheat a valuable addition to their diet.
Since the introduction of the first pasta made with KAMUT brand khorasan wheat in 1988, many consumers with wheat sensitivities have reported that they are able to eat KAMUT khorasan wheat. As a result of these initial reports research was sponsored to study allergenic responses of KAMUT khorasan wheat versus modern wheat by the International Food Allergy Association located in Illinois, in the USA. Their research concluded that “For most people who are sensitive to wheat, products made with KAMUT khorasan wheat can be an excellent substitute for common wheat.” Since KAMUT khorasan wheat contains gluten, it’s not recommended for people suffering from celiac disease.
