High in fiber and protein, and low in fat and calories, bulgur is great food that offers bulk and nutrients to fill you up. One cup of bulgur has fewer calories, less fat, and more than twice the fiber of brown rice.
In addition, bulgur has more fiber than oats, buckwheat, or corn. Bulgur is also high in protein and in minerals which means it is an ideal foundation for meals, allowing you to skip higher-fat protein sources, like most meats.
ALLERGEN WARNING: Because bulgur is a wheat product, anyone with a wheat or gluten allergy or intolerance should not eat it.
