What many people don't know is that the term Kamut applies only to Khorasan wheat grown on specific croplands. The word comes from ancient Egyptian and means “wheat”. Because it comes from a dead language, the American Quinn family was able to have it registered as a trademark. This means that anyone using the word Kamut must identify it as a registered trademark.
