Greenwheat FreekehTM Nutritional Profile

Since ancient times, peoples of the world have enjoyed a delicious, nutritious grain product made from roasted green wheat. Now, for the first time, a way has been discovered to produce this ancient foodstuff using Greenwheat Freekeh'sTM own, unique modern harvesting and hygienic production techniques. At the same time, modern scientific analysis and clinical trials have discovered what traditional peoples have long known: that wheat, when harvested young, retains more of its proteins, vitamins and minerals and generate great health benefits.
