Flame roasted green wheat for a smoky flavour

Freekeh green/brown grain made from durum wheat looks a little like bulgar/bulghur wheat and it is indeed made from cracked wheat. The difference is that the wheat grain is younger and the grains are toasted before cracking.

Zaytoun Freekeh is a traditional alternative to rice or more ordinary grains, and has been grown in Palestine for over 4,000 years. It's suitable for vegetarians and perfect for use in risotto, stuffing, pilaf, or sprinkled across salads.

Freekeh is a truly ancient grain. Green durum wheat is harvested while young and roasted on an open fire. It's then rubbed to remove the husk, revealing an aromatic, smoked grain packed with protein and fibre.
