What are the qualities which make bulgur superior?
Wheat (bulgur’s main raw material) is made of three parts: Endosperm, Bran and Germ.
Endosperm, high in starch and low in protein, is the energy supplier part of wheat and bulgur. Bran contains the fiber, while the germ contains the phenols, phytates; minerals such as zinc, magnesium, and chrome and B vitamins all contained by wheat excluding B12. These nutrition elements contained in wheat are protected during the production of bulgur.
The nutrient loss is prevented during boiling as result of re-absorption of vitamins and nutritional elements passing to water. This important detail in its production makes bulgur nutritionally superior.
