Bulgur’s Nutritional Edge over Brown Rice
Cooking Light magazine published a comparison between bulgur and brown rice, showing that a cup of bulgur has fewer calories and less fat. In terms of nutrition, bulgur holds its own when compared to fiber-rich brown rice – with more than twice the fiber and four times as much folate! Bulgur can be used in recipes calling for converted rice, and has been found to be more nutritious than rice.
