\"Safe\" Bulghar Wheat - Canadian Specific

Has anyone found a "safe" bulghar wheat (I need it for my tabouli salad)? Canadian specific.

If so, in what store?

I was using one brand when I was in Belleville that I was buying at A&P Ultraplus. Turns out it was not safe - it was made in America (that's not why it wasn't safe) and packaged in a bag (not a box). I only found out it wasn't safe because another member posted about it here.

Now, I know it is a strange little item to perhaps even purchase (I mean, how many people do you know that eat bulghar wheat, but then again, there was that movie set in mid-America with Jessica Lange where she took tabouli salad to some type of party), but where can I find some "safe" stuff?

I have checked Loblaw's affiliates (?) here so far - ValuMart, Sobey's, and No Frills. Now, the Sobey's, I thought it would have everything. It did have bulghar wheat, but it had the unsafe kind I had been buying in Belleville. ValuMart, although it does have an ethnic food aisle, it focuses on Polish cuisine because of the area I live in, so no bulghar there either. No Frills, nothing.

I was positive I used to buy it at No Frills in a box by Mr. Goudas.

Any information would be greatly appreciated - I need a *good* Tabouli right now.

Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Naer74, oh, that's an easy one for me to answer, not having to worry about measurements or anything. I'll re-raise the recipe for you that I've posted here. Other members have also posted variations thereof not using bulghar wheat.
To me and my strange way of thinking, it's one of those foods that I really believe if one ate on a regular basis, it is a healthy food (as long as you're not allergic to anything in it, of course), because it has Vitamin C, fibre, garlic (which I consider to be anti-cancer).
I'll post the link to the recipe in this thread even. That one I did share just 'cus I love it! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
