Zaytoun Smoky Freekeh (250g)
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.

From the home of the olive tree, Zaytoun found its feet in 2004 as a community interest company, providing support to reams of olive growers in Palestine. Zaytoun sprung from a love of good food – and was initially funded by hundreds of olive oil enthusiasts who gave advance payments for an ethical, wholesome, and artisanal oil that’d offer them that feel-good feeling when splashing it on a salad, or making food for their loved ones.
Zaytoun has expanded massively since then, and now prides itself on building real, living connections between countless Palestinian olive growers and the foodies who know good quality when they taste it.
