Kamut® is a modern wheat — registered and trademarked in 1990 — with an ancient lineage. The word is ancient Egyptian, and the hieroglyphics may literally mean “Soul of the Earth”. More prosaically, “bread”. The story of its discovery and growing popularity says a lot about our hunger for stories. It is also quite capable of leading hard-nosed molecular biologists astray.
Really enjoying this series, thank you for making it! This subject represents the intersection of many fascinating fields. Looking forward to more!
Thanks. I’m enjoying doing them too, mostly.
@eatthispodcast I’m not in Italy! And, I have to admit that I don’t pay a lot of attention. We’ll see what happens next time I’m in the store.
@jojolemon And there I was, thinking it had been overexposed.
Interesting. I’d not heard of Kamut before!
