GREAT TASTE AWARD WINNER 2019
Freekeh is the world’s most nutritious ancient grain. This smoky green wheat it's a super-versatile ingredient in the Mediterranean cuisine, well known for its healthy benefits.
2000 years ago in the hills of the Galilee, a small village was under threat of an attack. To save their wheat, the villagers harvested it while it was still green and hid it in a sheltered barn.
Fate had it and during the attack the barn caught fire. When the locals came to see what was left from their precious wheat, they rubbed it in their hands and made a discovery that we enjoy till this day – Freekeh, from the Arabic word “to rub” - the green wheat was roasted by the fire and attained a delicious smoky flavour.
Fresh from Galilee, taste the Mediterranean. Enjoy delicious vegan Freekeh with every meal.
