A nutritious staple in the Middle East, bulgur wheat consists of wheat kernels that have been steamed, dried and crushed. Crushed wheat is a whole grain product used in baking made from grinding or chopping wheat berries into varying particle sizes.
Crushed wheat is best used in whole wheat bread recipes. It can be used as a cereal, or in casseroles, salads and stuffing, as well as savoury preparations like upma or namkeen dalia.
The distinctively nutty coarse wheat is versatile, low in calories and loaded with nutrients. It is a primary source of protein and also contains appreciable amounts of Minerals and Vitamins – especially the B Vitamins.
