Freekeh is a roasted grain that comes from young green wheat. As the grain is picked and roasted when it is still green it retains a high proportion of protein, fibre and a number of key nutrients.40g or just less than 1/2  a cup serve, Freekeh offers 160cal, 7g of protein, 36g of carbs and almost 6g of fibre.

Freekeh can be a great carb choice to compliment salads or used in mixed dishes adding much flavour with its nutty taste.

As is the case with grains, they are energy dense foods, so watch your serving sizes, but they remain a nutritious addition to meals in the right portions. Find Aussie Freekeh in Coles supermarkets.
