All natural. Great source of fiber. Freekeh is a natural agricultural product. Despite the use of modern cleaning equipment, it is not always possible to remove all foreign material. Please sort and rinse freekeh before cooking. Freekeh (pronounced free-ka) has been a family favorite throughout the world for centuries. Made by fire-roasting baby green wheat, freekeh retains a higher content of dietary fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals than traditional wheat. Fire roasting also gives freekeh an earthy, nutty and delicious flavor that enhances any entree. Follow the basic preparation of freekeh for use as a side dish or toss cooked freekeh into any salad or soup to add a nutritional punch. Visit us at www.ziyad.com.
