Broken wheat or cracked wheat or couscous is made by milling whole raw wheat grains coarsely. Wheat is cleaned and husked and then processed to the required size. It is highly nutritious as it does not undergo refining. Such cracked wheat has a large number of uses, especially as a dietary supplement. When broken wheat is cooked, it has a hearty, warm aroma and a delightful, grainy taste. It is slightly nutty and chewy.
Because broken wheat is made from whole wheat berries, it carries a great deal of nutrition and fibre, since it includes the outer bran and germ of the wheat
For this reason, it is often added to healthy diet plans.
