I am very happy to announce the first event that I am doing as a guest host for Sanjeetha of litebite. It is part of her Wholesome Wholegrain Cooking monthly event for which the chosen theme for Jan 2012 is Bulgur wheat or broken wheat for dinner.
Benefits of Cracked Wheat...
Cracked wheat is made by cutting or crushing whole raw wheat berries into small pieces. Even though bulgur wheat is interchangeably used with cracked wheat, it is processed slightly different from cracked wheat. Also a whole grain, it is partially cooked prior to crushing. Both bulgur and cracked wheat are excellent sources of fiber, minerals and vitamins. Cracked wheat has all the benefits of wheat flour and since it contains the outer bran and germ of the wheat, it is a good source of fiber. It fits well into a low fat diet as a quarter cup contains just 1 percent of daily value for total fat and has no trans fat or cholesterol. It is also a good source of iron and protein.
