Freekeh, the ancient traditional green wheat of Palestine is the new super grain. Unlike many other types of Freekeh available in the markets which are dry and more 'mature' due to harvesting the wheat just a little bit earlier, Canaan Freekeh is harvested much earlier when wheat is still very young and green. It is then prepared to authentic traditions: flame-roasted, sun-dried and crushed. Flame-roasting gives it the smokey flavour, so it's more flavourful, chewey and has more texture to it. Freekeh is very high in protein, has four times the fibre as brown rice, and tastes absolutely delicious.
