** Kamut® is a strain of wheat that has not been cross-bred and
hybridized as traditional wheat has. Quite large, Kamut® migrated to the U.S.
from Egypt, and has been used successfully by some people with wheat allergies.
Grind into a flour and use instead of whole wheat flour in breads. Kamut® may
also be cooked and added to rice to create a chewy, interesting textured pilaf.
You can find Kamut in your natural health store.
