    What is Freekah? And can we get it somewhere in Auckland East or on the North Shore? Or is there a substitute? Thanks

      Hi Shelley,

      Freekeh is a type of wheat cereal. It should be available in most health food stores or in the health food aisle of your local supermarket. You could use any hard grain such as barley or buckwheat as a substitute also.
