Duru Extra Coarse bulgur is made from Turkey’s high quality wheat that is parboiled then is chopped and grinded. The high-end quality of Duru’s bulgur products comes from its being grinded in traditional millstones which makes bulgur keep its real taste and flavour.
Bulgur is a pre-cooked, parboiled, peeled and grinded wheat product without containing any colourings or artificial flavours. Most of the bulgur products are grinded in mass production factories while a handful of brands such as Duru use traditional windmills to ensure its ancient delicious taste and flavour stays still.
Bulgur is one of the ancient foods in history as it can resist mold contamination and does not draw insects as much as other food ingredients. Thus, it can be stored for a long period of time. For centuries, bulgur has had many names. However, the name “bulgur” is used in Anatolia where the ingredient itself is born and spread throughout the world. The first mass production of bulgur in industrial scale was in Karaman region, Anatolia. The factories were built to suffice the food ration of the military in WWI, and when the time comes to the 90’s, Turkey has introduced bulgur to many other countries, including the US, the UK and rest of Europe
