DURU Basbasi Bulgur
Bulgur has been a staple ingredient in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine for many millennia – and for good reason! This popular “ancient grain” is not only a wonderfully versatile culinary ingredient, but one of the healthiest grains one can consume. Bulgur is made from Durum wheat that is parboiled in water, sun-dried and milled into distinct grain sizes. 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 Extra, Extra Coarse Bulgur (Basbasi)is the coarsest bulgur available and perfect for pilafs, side dishes and artisanal breads. Yellow in color and with a pleasing nutty flavor, this bulgur will add hearty textural goodness to soups, stews, salads, casseroles and stuffed veggies. The easiest way to prepare this bulgur is boiled in your favorite cooking stock. 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 Extra, Extra Coarse 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, Basbasi Bulgur is not recommended for anyone with Celiac Disease or with a gluten intolerance.
