History
of This Health Depot
The history of bulgur dates back to 12,000 years ago.
Bulgur, which was born in Anatolia and Mesopotamia and is thought to be one of the first processed foods in human history, has been consumed by many cultures throughout history. The Mongol emperor Genghis Khan included it among the army rations in his expeditions. The Bible shows that the ancient Babylonian, Hittite, and Hebrew people 4 thousand years ago used cooked and dried wheat (bulgur) just as the Egyptians and other civilizations in the Eastern Mediterranean did in 1000 BC.
