Kamut

Overview (Has Gluten)

“Kamut” is a registered trademark for a variety of Khorasan wheat, an ancient grain believed to have originated in the Fertile Crescent region of Iran. The grain was first cultivated in America in the late 1970s, when two farming brothers began growing it. Today, it is only produced in the United States and Western Canada, and the Kamut brand has strict standards for any product bearing its name.

Kamut flour is used in the same manner as wheat flour, and is known for yielding moist baked goods with a buttery flavor and a smooth texture. It has a yellowish color quite distinct from the usual brown color of whole wheat flour. An exceptionally versatile flour, Kamut is often used for breads, breakfast cereals, waffles, pancakes, cookies, and pastas. Kamut can be substituted for wheat flour in nearly equal proportion—7/8 cup of Kamut flour replaces 1 cup of wheat flour.

Amaranth flour is high in the amino acids methionine and lysine, which help the body absorb calcium from the digestive tract.

Note: Weight of a cup (or partial cup) of flour varies depending upon whether it is lightly sprinkled into a measuring cup or compacted. Most recipe measurements are based on sifted flour as a way to arrive at more uniform measurement.

Gluten Content & Allergen Information

Compared to regular wheat, Kamut has a significantly higher protein content (up to 40% more), more amino acids (up to 65% more) and is also richer in potassium, magnesium, selenium, zinc, and vitamin E. The high gluten content of Kamut flour contributes to its excellent performance in recipes. Although higher in gluten than regular wheat, its gluten content is more easily digestible. Vegans prefer Kamut for its relatively high protein content.

Because Kamut is a variant of wheat, it contains gluten. Anyone with a wheat allergy or Celiac disease should avoid Kamut flour entirely, although many who are just sensitive to wheat gluten are able to eat Kamut without any problem.

“We love the mill! We use it every day for things from bread, to pastry and it is phenomenal. The biggest selling point for me was the fineness since that would mean we can really do some great pastry with it in addition to bread. It definitely has been great!"
