Bakery Benefits

Conventional and Organic Bulgur Bakery Applications:

  • Multi-Grain & Variety Breads
  • Whole Wheat Breads
  • Sprouted Whole Grain Breads
  • Flourless Breads

Straight Doughs, Sponge & Dough and Artisan Baking Systems:

  • Improved Crumb Softness by retarding crumb dehydration (and thereby crystallization of wheat starch) through an extended time-release mechanism characteristic of water absorbed and encapsulated within the pre-gelatinized matrices of the Bulgur Wheat and released into areas where the crumb may be drying. Recommended Bulgur Products: #2 Medium Grind and #3 Coarse Grind.
  • Higher Dough Yield by increasing the water absorption capacity of the dough system benefiting from the pre-gelatinized nature of Bulgur Wheat (water absorption of 95% vs. 62-65%
    [w/w] pre-gelatinized Bulgur flour vs. regular wheat flour). Recommended Bulgur Products: #1 Fine Grind and #2 Medium Grind.
  • Distinct Textural Improvement and uniformity by imparting an appealing garnish of whole-grain to the crumb; yet a soft and non-gritty bite. Recommended Bulgur Products: #1 Fine Grind, #2 Medium Grind, #3 Coarse Grind or #4 Extra Coarse Grind.
  • Controlled Crumb Humectancy by substituting up to 50% (w/w) of the regular wheat flour (whole or extracted) with blends of Bulgur Wheat products. Recommended Bulgur Products: #1 Fine Grind and #2 Medium Grind.
  • Reduced mold inhibitor usage/cost while improving the Microbial Shelf-life of baked bread as a result of the steam treatment or pasteurization effected on the raw wheat during the Bulgur process and the corresponding reductions in spoiling microorganisms, yeast and mold in particular. Recommended Bulgur Products: #1 Fine Grind, #2 Medium Grind, #3 Coarse Grind, #4 Extra Coarse Grind and Whole Kernel.

Tabbouleh recipes

Just as the spelling of tabbouleh varies – Tabouli, Taboule, Taboli, Tabouleh – so does the agreed upon date of when tabbouleh first came on the scene. We do know that the main ingredient in tabbouleh, bulgur wheat, was used by the ancients approximately 4,000 years ago. The wholesomeness and the flavors that commingle in tabbouleh’s combination of healthy greens and grains are both satisfying and highly nutritious.

Sunnyland Mills has created a variety of tabbouleh recipes that combine ingredients and spices that will enliven the taste buds.

Grano-Golden Pearled Durum Recipes

Renowned for its al dente (meaning “to the tooth” in Italian) texture when prepared, Grano has a firm, yet chewy consistency. It is high in fiber, protein and minerals. According to chefs, Grano maintains its texture on a steam table better than rice or pasta and can be reheated several times without damage.

Artful chefs use Grano in many ways – as an accompaniment or as a center-of-the-plate menu item as the bright golden grain adds color and goodness. It is a perfect component of a balanced meal and a delicious alternative to rice or pasta.

Sunnyland Mills’ founder, Carl Orlando, is 100% Sicilian and, as such, is very much into food. He took an existing recipe and added his own flair and Italian style to create a soup “like my mother used to make” – a delicious soup that harkens back to the simplicity and wholesomeness of the old days in the Sicilian countryside where his forefathers grew up. We hope you enjoy these recipes as much as the Sunnyland Mills family does. Va bene!
