Greenwheat Freekeh™ has origins in the Middle East as early as 13th century Baghdad. Harvested while green and processed with methods that capture the peak taste and nutrition of a young grain, it brings new life to wheat.
Historically, freekeh wheat was harvested when the grains were green and seeds were soft. It was dried in the sun and set on fire, burning only the straw and chaff, leaving the seeds intact. The seed underwent further thrashing and cracked into smaller pieces. This ancient process has been modernized and is now widely available.
