Bulgur is an ideal substitute for nutritionally depleted sides, such as potatoes, rice, pasta and stuffing. Like many whole grains, bulgur is a nutritional powerhouse. Rich in “B” vitamins, iron, phosphorous and manganese, it complements the protein profile of legumes and the folate in vegetables such as spinach, asparagus and broccoli. With a healthy balance of fat, fiber and protein, bulgur is also great for those watching their weight.

In approximately 2,800 B.C., the Chinese emperor Shen Nung declared bulgur one of five sacred crops along with rice, millet, barley and soybeans. Biblical references indicate it was prepared by ancient Babylonians, Hittites and Hebrew populations some 4,000 years ago, and Arab, Israeli, Egyptian, and Roman civilizations record eating dried, cooked wheat as early as 1,000 B.C.

In a 1954 study, the world renowned nutritionist, Dr. Francis Joseph Weiss, first postulated the key role bulgur (parboiled) wheat played in sustaining the health of our forefathers: “If food technologists had set out deliberately to find a way to use wheat so as to obtain:

  1. maximum economy in processing
  2. minimum loss of nutrients
  3. highest palatability and digestibility for humans
  4. optimum keeping quality and
  5. the least requirements for elaborate processing (cooking) equipment, and storage facilities

it is doubtful whether they could have been able to devise a more perfect method of wheat utilization than the ancient Jew had developed (in bulgur wheat).”
