Freekeh named in Top 100 Foods of 2017
When it comes to healthy eating, the science is clear; the more whole foods you can get into your day the better. But which foods give you the biggest nutrient bang for your buck? Nutritionist Chrissy Freer created taste.com.au’s first annual Top 100 Foods of 2017, revealing the real everyday super foods… and guess what?! Freekeh is one of them.
“Freekeh is wheat that is picked while still green, and is therefore higher in nutrients. It contains higher levels of protein (14-16 per cent), dietary fibre, calcium, potassium, iron and zinc than mature wheat. Additionally, freekeh is low GI and rich in the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, associated with the prevention of age-related macular degeneration” – Taste.com.au
