When a seed is planted in the ground it grows from the roots down. It is with that much intention that we get connected to our ancient roots and bring protein-rich grains from farmland to table. At Freekeh Foods, we cultivate a workplace culture that promotes ownership; we are family, employee, farmer, and processor owned.
Freekeh is an ancient grain rooted in the Middle Eastern tradition of roasting young green wheat. The roasted grain has a nutty flavor and chewy texture that provider innovative meal options that are in demand.
Customers want transparency on where their food comes from. Our company, Freekeh Foods, is the only company to grow and process Freekeh in the United States in 100% solar powered facility.
Freekeh has a chewy texture and a nutty flavor that resonates with the plant-based foodie because Freekeh is a nutrient dense ancient grain. Freekeh is a good source of protein (6g per 40g serving) and fiber (4g per 40g serving) making it more nutritious than brown rice, bulgur, and similar grains.
Freekeh is a versatile super grain that cooks perfectly in soups, pilafs, salads, stir-fries, and stews, or can be stone ground into flour for baking purposes. Whether you are looking for plant-based vegetarian or vegan option, or to feature a unique grain in your culinary masterpieces; Freekeh is the smart choice.
Freekeh cooks like rice. Freekeh has a chewy texture that holds its tooth, even after a couple of days in the refrigerator – it will not congeal like rice or quinoa when stored after cooking.
- Whole Freekeh has the texture of a wheat berry

- Recommended use: Vegan and Vegetarian Dinner, cold salad, soup, or as a unique side to any Middle Eastern inspiration
