Zaytoun Freekeh is a young green wheat that has been toasted and cracked. High in protein and vitamin content. It also has a low GI index. It is widely used in Arab and North African cooking. Freekeh looks a little like green bulghar wheat and can be prepared and served like rice or used in soups and stuffings.
Freekeh is one of the Middle East's famed "ancient grains" - it's been cultivated in the region for more than four millennia. The word comes from the Arabic word meaning "to rub," which is how farmers stripped away the burnt husk from the green grain in the age before heavy machinery combines.
