What is Bulgur
Bulgur is a quick-cooking form of whole wheat that has been cleaned, parboiled, dried, ground into particles, and sifted into distinct sizes. Not to be confused with cracked wheat, bulgur differs in that it has been pre-cooked and is ready to eat with minimal cooking – many of Sunnyland Mills’ products cook in as little as 9 minutes.
Sunnyland Mills’ bulgur is made from whole grain and is a nutritious, versatile wheat product with a pleasant, nut-like flavor and an extended shelf-life that allows it to be stored for long periods of time. Manufacturers count on us for predictable results, ingredient uniformity and taste consistency, which is why our four distinct grind sizes, as well as whole kernel, provide different textures and cooking properties for a variety of nutritious food applications.
Below is a fun visual description of the steps involved in making bulgur wheat.
Bulgur can be spelled a variety of ways – bulgar, bulghur, burghul, just to name a few – but no matter how you spell it, Sunnyland Mills’ product is still the same nutritious, natural food!
An Ancient (Whole) Grain of Truth
Bulgur Wheat is a natural whole grain food because no chemicals, additives or artificial ingredients are used in processing the product. Many of bulgur wheat’s naturally occurring vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins, iron, phosphorus and manganese, permeate the kernel during Sunnyland Mills’ finely tuned processing thus maintaining more nutritive content than other forms of processed wheat products.
Rather than being a specific grain, bulgur is a unique process that creates a quick-cooking form of whole grain that’s been manufactured by Sunnyland Mills’ exclusive methods. The result is a pleasant, nut-like flavor that is high in fiber and carbohydrate, and low in fat.
The key to success in today’s health-focused market is naturally enhanced nutrition. All of our products are Non-GMO Project Verified and we offer a line of Certified Organic Bulgur.
