ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Freekeh is roasted green wheat. The wheat is harvested while still young and green, then parched, roasted and dried. The natural process captures and retains the grain at its peak state of taste and nutrition. At the NYC 2013 Fancy Food Show, Chef and Good Morning America Food Editor, Sara Mouton wrote: "Freekehlicious was 1 of the 13 most interesting new products at the NYC 2013 Fancy Food Show that foodies should keep an eye out for." This year, freekeh is listed on many 'food trend reports,' as the new grain of choice for 2015.
