Listen to this article

Below is our recent interview with Trevor Blyth, the President at Kamut International:

Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to KAMUT® Brand?

A: KAMUT® brand wheat is an ancient grain, guaranteed under the KAMUT® brand, to never be modified or hybridized, always organically grown, and prized for its nutrition, ease of digestibility, sweet nutty-buttery taste, and firm texture. It is a protein, fiber, and vitamin source high in minerals, including selenium. KAMUT® was introduced to the market over 30 years ago by Kamut International, establishing as a pillar of its mission to preserve and protect the unique qualities of the grain with a trademark that guarantees that the original variety will always retain its ancient qualities and nutrition. KAMUT® brand wheat is Still Ancient, and always will be.

KAMUT® can be found worldwide in products, including bread, pasta, pizza, cereals, snacks, pastries, crackers, beer, green foods, and cereal drinks. There are around 1,200 products throughout the world featuring KAMUT® brand wheat, including products from the following well-known North American companies:

  • Bob’s Red Mill Natural Foods
  • Eden Foods
  • Nature’s Path Foods
  • Good Groceries Company
  • The Food Nanny
  • Panhandle Milling Company
  • Patagonia Provisions
  • Suzie’s

Q: Any highlights on your latest announcement?

A: October 25th may have come and gone, marking the end of World Pasta Day, but there’s no need to say goodbye to beloved staples like bread, pizza, flour, and pasta. With an impressive annual import of 26 pounds of pasta per person from Italy to the United States, it’s clear that pasta is a cherished dietary cornerstone for many.

While World Pasta Day serves as a delightful reminder of the culinary joy pasta brings, the truth is that you don’t need a specific day to indulge in the wholesome goodness of KAMUT® Brand Wheat. This remarkable pasta option not only tantalizes your taste buds but also addresses various dietary concerns and digestive sensitivities. The beauty of KAMUT® wheat pasta lies in its ability to provide a satisfying and nutritious wheat-based experience all year round. So, savor your wheat dishes, knowing they can be a healthy, nutritious, yet enjoyable part of your day.

Q: What can we expect from the KAMUT® Brand in the next 6 months? What are your plans?

A: Kamut International is continually focusing efforts on promotion, protection, and research of KAMUT® brand wheat. This means continually working to find new partners that produce amazing creations with this grain and provide more ways for people to enjoy and experience it, and ensuring through various means that the grain remains the original, authentic, and pure ancient variety whoever it is found and identified in products with the KAMUT trademark. Lastly, efforts are always ongoing to better understand this grain, what makes it unique, and its benefits for people and the planet. Published results coming from this body of work can be found at

Q: What is the best thing about the KAMUT® Brand that people might not know about?

A: While KAMUT® boasts numerous advantages, one of its lesser-known virtues is that many people with sensitivities to modern wheat report being able to eat KAMUT® brand wheat with no difficulty and thus that it is an excellent alternative to modern wheat. Kamut International supports ongoing research to understand this phenomenon and to confirm the health benefits of KAMUT® brand wheat.

KAMUT® has a significant protein content, abundant fiber and vitamins, along with notable minerals that include a high content of selenium – an element typically obtained through dietary sources that play a crucial role in various biological processes and has several important functions in the body, including antioxidant protection, immune support, thyroid function and DNA synthesis helping to maintain the integrity of genetic material. Selenium is an essential mineral that offers several significant health benefits when consumed in appropriate amounts as found in the incredible KAMUT® Brand Wheat.

Finally, KAMUT® brand wheat is best suited to growing in environments considered to be more water scarce, such as where farming already depends on limited annual rainfall. This makes it well suited to meet the needs of producing high quality, nutrient dense nutrition despite climate change and greater scarcity of water resources.
