  • About
Freekeh is a highly nutritious grain made from fire-roasted green wheat. The grains are harvested while still young, therefore freekeh contains more protein, vitamins, and minerals than the same mature grains and has up to four times the fiber of brown rice. It is an excellent alternative to pasta, rice, or potatoes.
