Non-allergic wheat alternative. Makes delicious sprout bread (2-3 days in theSprout Bag) or Kamut Grass (12 days in Sproutman’s Wheatgrass Grower)
Kamut is the traditional name given to an ancient variety known as khorosan wheat. It was imported to North America from Egypt in the late 1940s and retains many of the simpler qualities of wheats from Biblical times. Its kernel is over twice the size of regular wheat and it averages 17% protein as compared to only 12% for modern wheat. Kamut also has more calories because it is higher in lipids (fat, but no cholesterol). It contains significantly higher levels of magnesium and zinc. Although it does contain gluten, it is a different gluten than that of common wheat. In a study by the Internal Food Allergy Association in Tinley Park, IL, 70% of their wheat allergy test subjects were able to successfully tolerate Kamut. Soil is never necessary to sprout kamut.
