FREEKEH BROKEN - Kosher

FREEKBR-10

Description:

Cracked Freekeh is a 100% all natural grain that's harvested while still soft, young, and green. This results in a highly nutritious grain that is then parched giving it a slightly smoky aroma and nutty toasted flavor. It’s like a smoky cousin to bulgur wheat and a cross between brown rice and barley.

This Freekeh has been cracked to reduce cooking time. An ancient grain from 2300 BC, this Eastern Mediterranean protein-enriched super food is high in fiber (it has up to four times the amount of fiber found in brown rice) and iron. Freekeh is native of Lebanon, Jordan, Syria and Egypt.

No additives or preservatives are used.
