Freekeh is a cereal made from green durum wheat which grows in our region (the Levant and North Africa). It is used as easily as rice - as an accompaniment, or a base, and is super nutritious. Kind of like the new quinoa but healthier and more affordable. It has recently become a super trendy ingredient - Even Oprah is talking about it!
Being a biochemist and Agri-food engineer student, Maria couldn’t just let freekeh become this big thing without making sure our region gets the credit it deserves: so her mission became to “take back freekeh”!
It started with a homemade recipe of a cereal bar made with freekeh, honey and chocolate. She presented it at a university competition, and since then, it grew to become a full-blown brand with different mixes! Maria still makes these bars at home and has invaded all of her parents' basement now. She is changing the way we consume Freekeh and bringing back our grandmothers’ favorite ingredient to coolness.
