"Durum wheat" should be Triticum durum, but it almost never is, instead it's just a much cheaper hard cultivar of T.aestivum. 100% legal in both Canada & the USA at least. I don't know whether or not T.durum would be better for those with wheat intolerances than T.aestivum, although a lot of people feel that T.spelta (spelt) is. But, that's why "durum" semolina didn't help you. And, I suggest not claiming that the pure endosperm is the most nutritious part - it just has the most calories.
