The brand name for a type of flour milled from grain that is closely related to durum wheat and is often considered a specialty grain. Kamut is often ground, packaged, and sold as flour. Kamut wheat is organically grown and is highly nutritious providing high levels of protein, niacin, thiamine, zinc, magnesium, iron, and riboflavin.
For optimum shelf life, Kamut flour should be stored in the refrigerator or freezer; however it can also be stored in a sealed container in a cool, dry location. It usually keeps longer than whole-grain wheat flour because it has a lower moisture content than wheat. Kamut flour is usually found in health food and specialty shops.
