Bolted Stone Ground Organic Kamut Flour
Bolted Stone Ground Organic Kamut Flour – 3, 10 & 50 lb bags
About bolted flour: Bolted (or high-extraction) flour is whole grain flour with some percentage of the bran sifted out, which makes it a nice compromise between hearty 100% whole grain and all purpose white flour. It’s ideal for when you want a lighter loaf or dough yet wish to retain the high nutrition found in the germ of the wheat berry.
Kamut® is an ancient grain and the brand name for khorasan wheat, a large amber wheat grain closely related to durum. Kamut is appreciated for its smooth, buttery, nutty flavor, and its high protein and nutritional content.
It contains a high mineral concentration especially in selenium, zinc, and magnesium with 20-40% more protein compared to modern-day wheat. It has a higher lipid to carbohydrate ratio, which means the grain produces greater energy and has a natural sweetness to counterbalance the occasional bitterness present in traditional wheat.
Kamut grain is naturally resistant to pests and can be more easily grown organically than most other types of wheat. This grain is “untouched” by modern plant breeding programs which appear to have sacrificed flavor and nutrition for higher yields dependent upon large amounts of synthetic agricultural inputs.
Even though this wheat variety contains gluten, it has been found to be more easily digestible by people who may have slight allergic tendencies. If you are allergic or sensitive to traditional wheat, this may be an acceptable alternative, but do check with your doctor first before you try it.
Kamut’s flavor and nutritional attributes make it excellent in breads, cereals, cookies, crackers, pastries, waffles and pancakes. The actual wheat grains can be soaked and used in salads. Kamut is also available as freshly stone ground kamut flour and used to make superior pasta.
More information on Kamut is available on the official Kamut website.
Note: Since this flour contains wheat germ and wheat germ is an oil, this flour will not keep for as long as typical commercially milled white flour. Do not purchase more than you expect to consume within a few months. We recommend keeping your flour in air tight packaging or container and storing in a cool place or preferably the refrigerator or freezer.
