Freekeh originates from the Arabic word 'faraka' (meaning 'to rub'), which refers to the traditional method of brushing the husk away from the dried wheat. Cracked freekeh is an extremely nutritious grain, containing higher amounts of protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, and minerals than wheat itself. Why? Because it's harvested before the grain has fully ripened, which moreover gives it its remarkable slight green color. Afterward, our growers sun-dry and roast the piles carefully, while the straw and chaff are rubbed off. Cracked freekeh has a chewy and firm texture. Thanks to its great versatility, you can use it anytime you'd usually use rice or other grains, remembering that it only needs 15 minutes to cook instead of 45. Alternatively, substitute your original flour with some freekeh wheat for a more intense, nutty flavor in your upcoming pastries.
