What is Freekeh?
Unlike traditional wheat, which is harvested after the wheat has dried, freekeh is made by harvesting the crop when it is still green.
The whole grains are then roasted, which gives wheat a more rice-like, whole oat-like appearance than traditionally harvested wheat. This means that freekeh is cooked in a similar way to rice or oats.
A 1 cup (cooked) serving contains:
1 gram of fat
26 grams of carbs
4 grams of fiber
8 grams of protein
And, is also rich in minerals such as Manganese, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Iron, Calcium, Zinc.
Because this is a wheat product, freekeh does contain the protein gluten.
