I just made some tabbouleh last night, and the way the recipe said to prepare the bulgur wheat was just to soak it in cold water for an hour, does this make it a raw food as I didn't heat it at all? Or has it already been heated/cooked before I got it?

bulgur wheat is par-boiled (that's part of what makes it "bulgur").

If you buy whole grains they should be raw. For instance, instead of kasha, try raw buckwheat groats. Amaranth, quinoa, millet, brown rice, oat groats, wheat berries, and rye berries are some more examples of raw grains. To my knowledge, rolled oats are not raw, so if you want oats, get oat groats. They're great for making dehydrated crackers.

What about Quinoa flakes? Are they heat treated at all, does anyone know? They just look squished so I'm hoping they're okay...
