Bulgur wheat (aka bulgar wheat) is an easy-to-use, low-calorie, whole grain. Our bulgur wheat is a medium grind (#2), perfect for use in tabouli salad and many other dishes. Sometimes spelled bulgar, this whole grain is high in fiber and very nutritious. Use bulgur wheat in salads, pilafs, burgers, and many Middle Eastern recipes.
Around 3000 years ago, Middle Eastern civilizations realized that wheat could be more easily processed, preserved, and digested if it were pre-cooked, dried, and crushed. Some believe that bulgur was the world's first processed food; at any rate, bulgur wheat was adopted into the diet of civilizations around the Mediterranean because of how easy it was to prepare, store, and eat.
Bulgur wheat hasn't changed very much in the last few millennia. Our bulgur wheat starts with wheat kernels that are parboiled, debranned, dried, and ground into a medium size. This method of processing leaves bulgur wheat with the best of both worlds: it is easy to digest, but retains almost all of its whole wheat nutrient content. Bulgar wheat is rich in fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals, while low in calories and fat.
Bulgur wheat is a prominent part of many Mediterranean and Middle Eastern dishes, and is a staple of the famed Mediterranean diet. In particular, Bulgur is a central ingredient tabouli (also spelled tabbouleh), a characteristically Middle Eastern salad that also includes tomatoes, cucumbers, and many seasonings. Our medium-ground bulgur wheat is ideal for making tabouli and other salads.
Bulgur wheat has a slightly nutty flavor and is tender when prepared. Bulgur wheat is often found in recipes for salads, pilafs, burgers, meatballs, and casseroles. You can also use it in soups, breads, pies, and stuffings. In general, bulgur wheat can be used as one would use any other grain, and can be substituted for rice and couscous in most cases.
Because it starts out already partially cooked, bulgur wheat is very easy to prepare on its own by boiling 1 cup with 2.5 cups of water for about thirty minutes.

“I'm so thrilled to have found this web site! I ordered my Quinoa, whole wheat couscous, Bulgur wheat and dried fruits & nuts on Tuesday at lunchtime and they were delivered to my door on Wednesday! Until now, I would have to drive all over town, to 3-4 different grocery & health food stores to get all of my 'clean eating' foods. Now I can order everything I need in 5 minutes and have them delivered to me the next day! How cool is that???!!!”

“The Bulgar wheat arrive as scheduled. As usual the UPS driver just left it setting outside our side door. I discovered it was here when I checked on the delivery status. It looks great and should make some very good Tabouli.

“I was so happy to see bulgar wheat among the different grains you sell on your site. I would also encourage anyone who has never tried the bulgar wheat to do so. I like my bulgar wheat cooked with sauteed onions, mushrooms, and beef broth... Its absolutely delicious! Its so versatile too, you can make it savory or sweet. My package arrived in a timely manner and I look forward to ordering more of the great products you offer. "Im glad you are More than just nuts."”
