Freekeh Foods Roasted Green Wheat Ancient Grains Tamari - 8 oz.

Freekeh Foods Roasted Green Wheat Ancient Grains Tamari is organic cracked freekeh seasoned with Tamari soy sauce giving it a wonderful Asian flair. Tamari soy sauce is made with brewed soy and gives it a mild flavor compared to traditional soy sauce which is brewed with both soy and wheat and is saltier. Their Tamari freekeh is made from only organic ingredients and is great paired with stir-fries, salmon or fish; and great with Thai Peanut sauce and veggies for cold salads.

Freekeh? What is that?
So glad you asked! Freekeh is a delicious roasted grain that is a great alternative to rice or other grains. (It has an awesome nutty, chewy texture and they offer it in 3 varieties: Original, Rosemary Sage, and Tamari. What's more, freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice! How's that for a no brainer?

Here's the legend of how freekeh came to be...
Freekeh is a process which means "to rub" in Arabic. Freekeh was created by accident over 2.000 years ago when a Middle Eastern village was attacked and their crop of young green wheat was set ablaze. Most folks would sulk over their misfortune, but the crafty villagers rubbed off the chaff, cooked it up and "Eureka!" Freekeh was created. They're proud to offer you this tasty, nutritious ancient grain with a funny name.

So what do you do with Freekeh?
The question should be...what can't you do with it? They love it in soups, pilafs, salads, you name it! You can substitute Freekeh in any recipe that calls for rice or quinoa. There is really no wrong way to "get your Freekeh on." Adopt it, fall in love with it and tell them what you have created with Freekeh.

Organic Freekeh Nutritional Facts!

Freekeh is a healthy alternative to rice because it has up to 3 times the protein as even brown rice! Freekeh is a roasted ancient grain that is equal to quinoa in protein and fiber. Their freekeh is also low glycemic according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and is recommended by many dieticians who have type 2 diabetes as a healthy complex carb.

See for yourself! It's low sodium, good protein and fiber - a great combination for athletes, folks watching their waistline and kids too! They got an "A" grade on Caloriecount.com too! Dr. Oz recommends freekeh as one of his "7 Essentials for women over 40."

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you pronounce Freekeh?
Free-kuh.

What is Freekeh?
According to legend, Freekeh originated by accident when an ancient Middle Eastern village was attacked and their young wheat fields were set ablaze. In attempts to salvage their crops, the villagers rubbed away the burnt chaff and found that the roasted kernels inside were delicious! Since that time, Freekeh (which literally means, "to rub") became a mainstay of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine.

Freekeh is a wheat product & therefore contains gluten.?
Yes, Freekeh contains gluten-but because of when the wheat is harvested and processed, the gluten is denatured. Some people find that Freekeh has fewer side effects than other wheat products; however, keep in mind that Freekeh still contains gluten.

I have Celiac disease; can I eat Freekeh?
No, you probably shouldn't-as the allergen is still present.

How do you cook it?
You can cook freekeh on the stovetop in a saucepan, or in a rice cooker (on the brown rice setting). Simply use 1 part Freekeh to 2 1/2 parts of water or broth-bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until tender.

What does it taste like?
Freekeh has a smokey flavor, and nutty chewy texture. Our freekeh comes in three varieties: The Classic Original, and two seasoned flavors-a savory blend of organic Rosemary and Sage, and a bold and authentic Tamari, flavored with organic shoyu sauce.

How does Freekeh compare to other grains?
Freekeh has up to three times the fiber and protein found in brown rice, and fewer calories than quinoa and white rice.
Freekeh is a great choice to use in recipes you already enjoy-the cook times are comparable to brown rice, so it's easy to choose Freekeh!
