Is there a difference in taste between these grains? (not sure if they're all grains even)

Whenever I'm in the market I see "spelt pasta" and "kamut cereal". Just wondering if there are more nutritional properties in some than others, and if their tastes vary. Do any of you have a preference?

yes, they do taste different and vary in their content of different nutrients. of those you listed, i only eat quinoa and millet, though i've also had spelt bread, which pretty much just tasted like bread (spelt is a type of wheat that is lower in gluten).

Yeah there is a big difference in taste. Although if it was pasta I cannot see them tasting but so different from each other. Like whole wheat and semolina pasta, there are subtle differences, but it's still pasta.

they all have their own unique flavors, i like to try out new grains and it's fun to have 7-grain salad sometimes too
