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!

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.
