DURU #4 Extra Coarse Bulgur (Iri Pilavlik)
Bulgur has been a pantry staple in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern kitchens for thousands of years, and for good reason! This wonderfully versatile “ancient grain “is not only delicious, but one of the healthiest foods 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 #4 Extra Coarse Bulgur (Iri Pilavlik) is larger than #3 coarse bulgur; each bulgur grain looks like half of a grain of wheat. Wonderfully nutty in flavor, this coarser bulgur is ideal for pilafs and stuffing and will add hearty textural goodness to soups, salads and artisanal breads. For an easy side dish, boil Duru #4 Extra Coarse Bulgur with your favorite stock and seasonings. To amplify the inherent nuttiness of Duru Iri Pilavlik, pan sauté the bulgur in olive oil or butter for 3 to 5 minutes and then add your cooking stock and aromatics. 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 delicious 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.
