DURU #2 Medium Coarse Bulgur (Ince)
Bulgur is a popular “ancient grain” made from Durum wheat that is parboiled in water, sun-dried and milled into distinct grain sizes. A staple of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines for many millennia, and Turkish cuisine for over 1,000 years, bulgur is also one of the healthiest grains one can consume! At Duru, we have been making bulgur in Turkey since our founding in 1935 by brothers Ziya and Ihsan Duru. Today, Duru is still a family-owned enterprise: offering our customers the finest natural bulgur using traditional production methods and sustainable agriculture and environmental practices. Duru #2 Medium Coarse Bulgur (Ince) is traditionally used in pilafs, soups, stews, stuffed veggies, meatballs and salads and as a side-dish instead of pasta or rice. Light and nutty in flavor, and light yellow in color, this nutritious and delicious grain can be used to make Middle Eastern tabbouleh salad and the fried stuffed meatballs known as kibbeh. Because bulgur is already cooked, it is much easier to prepare than other grains. For certain cold dishes, like tabbouleh, all you need to do is to soak the grains in warm water before using them. To amplify the inherent nuttiness of bulgur, for a delicious hot side dish or one-pot meal, pan sauté the bulgur in olive oil or butter for 3 to 5 minutes and add your cooking stock and aromatics. Duru #2 Medium Coarse Bulgur makes a delicious warm morning cereal cooked with warm milk and served with brown sugar, raisins, bananas and a touch of salt. Or with raw almonds, diced apples and maple syrup. Bulgur has a significantly lower glycemic index than pasta or rice, making it a great grain for diabetics. Rich in fiber, antioxidants and protein, bulgur also helps with satiety, heart health and anemia. This light and nutty grain also helps to balance the body’s pH and is a good source of manganese, b vitamins, folic acid, iron and magnesium. A wonderful grain for vegans, vegetarians and meat eaters, bulgur is not recommended for anyone with Celiac Disease or with a gluten intolerance.
