It can be cooked for a great morning cereal, used cold for salads and works great for pilafs. This is a must have for your long term food storage because it is so versatile and it will provide you and your family with some of the nutrients that your body needs!
Kamut, a chemical-free grain, is a variety of khorasan wheat and has ancient origins with all of the essential nutritional attributes that gave ancient wheat the term “staff of life” in Biblical times. It has a high percentage of lipids making it a “high-energy” wheat and also contains a high content of selenium, a mineral known for its antioxidant capacity. Kamut can be ground into flour to make pasta and breads. Many people that are sensitive to wheat can eat this grain although it does contain gluten so it is not recommended for those with celiac disease. This is a great addition to add variety to your long-term food storage.
