Khorasan wheat — colloquially know as Kamut, a trademarked name — is a grain larger than conventional wheat and has a higher protein content. Some people with sensitivity to gluten have reported being able to tolerate khorasan, however since it is still a wheat, it is generally not recommended those with celiac disease try it out.

In terms of nutritional value, khorasan is solid, with a half-cup serving coming in at 140 calories and 6 grams of protein. It is cooked at a ratio of three cups of water per cup of khorasan. The grain also comes in puffed cereal form, for those looking for a breakfast cereal alternative.
