Question:

What is the question on cooked bulgur? (I’m referring to the kind that comes in kitov vacuum sealed packages.)
Thank you.

Answer:

While I am not familiar with what exactly comes in the Kitov package, however the rule is the following. If the bulkur is cracked, split (which is the case most of the time) or polished, so that the kernel is no longer whole , then the bracha will be mezonos. If the kernel is still whole, and it wasn’t cook too well so that even after it is cooked the kernels are still whole then the bracha would be hoadomo. My understanding is that most bulgur are split kernels, on them the bracha is mezonos.

Best wishes
