What is Freekeh?

Freekeh (pronounced “free-ka”) is a versatile superfood packed with nutrition and health benefits. It is produced by harvesting grains while still soft, young and green, then parching roasting and drying. The process  captures the grains at a state of peak taste and nutrition. Freekeh is the name of this process and is not the name of a grain variety. Elsewhere you may see Freekeh referred to as freekah, frikeh, fireek, or farik
