Online source for freekeh?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good online source (in the U.S.) for freekeh? I'm looking for whole grain freekeh, not cracked. Someone gave me a bag of it a while ago, and I loved it when I finally cooked it, but now I'm having trouble finding more. I'd appreciate any suggestions for reputable sources.

 It seems to be readily available on Amazon.com from various sources.

I guess I was so focused on finding small producers or farmers that it never occurred to me to try Amazon! I'm not familiar with many of the brands selling the (not cracked) freekeh on Amazon. Are there any you'd recommend? I was really disappointed in the cracked freekeh I got at a local grocery store (but I don't know if that was because it was cracked or the brand).

 No. I'm sorry I'm not familiar with the brands but I do know that Amazon has got the best customer service going so if you were not satisfied you could return it with no problem.  But someone else might be able to recommend one of the brands I see there so I would sit tight for now and give people a chance to see that you're looking for an answer. @andiesenji  will almost certainly know where to obtain it!

I have this brand: Ecoideas Whole Grain Greenwheat Freekeh

They have whole and cracked fresh.  Imported from Australia to Canada by Ecoideas at ecoideas.ca from Richmond, British Columbia.

I did not see this brand on amazon.com.

Bob's Red Mill might be a reliable source.

Good luck.

I buy it from Nuts.com.  Some is "cracked" but much is whole grain.  I have tried several brands and this is by far the best I have tried.  I recommend it without  reservations.

 

I buy several whole grains from this vendor and often combine them.  

The freekeh combined with the rye berries is absolutely delicious.

 

I am also very partial to Argan oil as a finishing oil on cooked grains.

Thanks for the recommendations! I think I'll give Nuts.com a try. And maybe the "Freekehlicious" product on Amazon, too, because the name is entertaining.

I have in my freezer (best place to store whole grains)  Organic pearled farro, organic Einkorn, organic toasted buckwheat,  organic kaniwa, organic red quinoa and organic black quinoa, amaranth, organic cracked rye berries and the freekeh.  

 

I also have their rye pumpernickel meal,  buckwheat flour, teff flour, spelt flour and sorghum flour - I use the latter in some breads to add sweetness without using sugar or a sugar substitute.  

It is especially good in Swedish limpia rye.  

 

You can be sure the products are fresh because the turnover is very rapid.

I tried the wholegrain freekeh from Freekehlicious. Bought it on Amazon. Delish!  I use it as a breakfast cereal. Cook it on Sunday and I have it for the week. I have it with yogurt, fruit and a bit of cinnamon!
