Young wheat grains…
Greenwheat Freekeh is a variety of delicious, highly nutritious grain made from young wheat harvested at their nutritional peak and then lightly toasted and cracked. The nutty taste and wholesome texture of the grains make Freekeh a flavourful alternative to rice, couscous and bulgur wheat.
This cracked variety of Freekeh is whole grain kernels that have been splintered into smaller pieces to provide a faster cooking time – leading to a different texture and taste in comparison to Wholegrain Freekeh.
