A favourite in the Middle East, bulgur is a type of cracked wheat kernel that has been precooked and dried. The resulting grain is light tan in color, slightly chewy, with a mild flavor that works well with many dishes.

Diabetes experts speculate that bulgur wheat can easily be adapted to a diabetes diet when eaten in place of simple, refined carbohydrate. In fact, the researchers theorised that replacing white rice with whole grains could possibly lower the risk of diabetes by as much as 36 percent.
