JAMI Whole Wheat Jufka
Jufka, also known as “yufka,” “fillo” or “phyllo,” are paper-thin sheets of unleavened dough used in a host of sumptuous Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Balkan savory and sweet dishes. If you love working with phyllo, but are looking for a product with extra whole grain goodness, look no further! Jami Whole Wheat Jufka is made with a mixture of wheat flour, integral wheat flour (whole wheat flour) and wheat bran. Any recipe calling for phyllo will work beautifully with our Whole Wheat Jufka. Our Jufka can be folded, layered, ruffled and rolled with the ingredients of your choosing. If you grew up in the Balkans, Jami Whole Wheat Jufka is a perfect ingredient for a wide assortment of traditional dishes, from Burek (savory or sweet phyllo-wrapped pies filled with cheese, spinach, potato and/or ground meat – or fruit like apples and cherries), Pita Zeljanica (large savory pies enrobed with golden layers of phyllo filled with spinach and feta, beyaz peynir or Travnicki Sir cheese), Gibanica (large pies with a cheese, egg and herb mixture nestled between alternating layers of crispy phyllo) to Bundevara (a dessert rolled like a strudel, filled with grated pumpkin). Whole Wheat Jufka is a wonderful dough for a multitude of desserts like baklava, made with ground nuts, cinnamon and butter, and drenched in honey, rosewater or orange water simple syrup. You will find the delicate dough makes an elegant wrap for baked brie, baked salmon and grilled shrimp – and a delicious base for fruit tarts with custard and berries. Jufka, by definition, is low in fat and cholesterol and a healthy alternative to regular and puff pastry dough. Jami Whole Wheat Jufka is a nutritious all-purpose phyllo for health-conscious eaters.
