Production: whole wheat couscous is made by milling whole durum wheat, leaving the rich yellow endosperm granules called semolina which is then mixed with small amount of water to form small granules of pasta.
Qualities: durum is a variety of hard wheat that has a higher protein and gluten content than other kinds of wheat. Whole wheat couscous contains more soluble and insoluble fiber and micronutrients compared to its refined version.
Common use: when cooked as pasta: in saucepan, bring 1 cup water (or broth) to boil; stir in 1 cup (250 mL) couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with fork. Makes 4 servings. It can also serve as a thickener, as part of a bread recipe to add a different texture, or as a base for soups and delicious desserts.
Storage: keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark location

Organic Couscous food product and value
The organic whole wheat couscous comes from Canada which gave me pause - but the cut of the small grains is nicely irregular just like what you see from Mediterranean sources. Cooks very well, it’s very fresh and tasty. Great overall.
I’m not one on writing reviews, but ALL of the items I’ve ordered (with exception of one thing, which was likely more my fault as I’d never tried it before) have been exceptionally excellent! I have been a raw vegan for a few years now, so I primarily eat nuts and seeds and lentils and I have never in my life eaten such fresh products- unless I harvested it myself! It’s insane to taste things you’ve had your whole life and then taste them from OM foods. The flavours are so pure! I ordered a small order of things first, and after about a week I ordered more since I knew the quality would be just as amazing as the price. Thank you OM foods!
