Expanding its line of the popular roasted green wheat, Freekeh Foods is proud to launch its certified organic freekeh line.  Recently certified by Oregon Tilth, Freekeh Foods’ organic freekeh is a great alternative to rice or quinoa and known for its delicious flavor and health benefits!

 Freekeh Line 

Often referred to as the new superfood, freekeh’s fiber and protein combination provides a more complete grain than most other grain varietals. With each low-fat serving of organic freekeh providing six grams of protein, four grams of fiber and 130 calories, the delicious roasted grain has already netted praise from the likes of celebrity trainers Joel Harper and Kim Lyons, chef Jamie Oliver, Dr. Oz and even Oprah herself.

“Freekeh is a staple in my nutrition plan and I highly recommend it to all my clients,” Kim Lyons, former trainer on The Biggest Loser, says. “The extra protein and fiber make it superior to other grains. My personal favorite is the tamari flavor, yum!"

Along with tamari, Freekeh Foods also offers original and rosemary sage flavors. What’s more, the naturally-vegan, organic varieties by Freekeh Foods are easy to cook in a wide array of delicious ways for today’s ultra-busy Americans. Some of the recipes featured in the “30 Ways to Freekeh” cookbook by Freekeh Foods Co-Founder Bonnie Matthews include dishes such as Freekeh Meatballs with Ground Chicken, Vegetarian Tacos and a flavorful oatmeal alternative, Warm Breakfast Freekeh with Fruit.

Although freekeh has long been produced in the Middle East and Australia, Freekeh Foods is proud to support American agriculture and is committed to working with Organic Farmers in the US to produce a quality product.

The NEW certified organic, ancient grain freekeh will soon be available online on Freekeh Foods’ website and Amazon starting at $3.99 per 8 oz. bag and is expected to hit shelves in US retailers including Whole Foods and Wegmans in the coming months.
