Israeli couscous, also called pearl couscous, is similar to regular couscous in that it's a small, whole grain-like food made from semolina or wheat flour.
So, what does Israeli couscous taste like? Because of its size, Israeli couscous has a slightly chewy texture, similar to barley, and, because it's toasted, it has a slightly savoury flavour. Like regular couscous and other whole grains, however, Israeli couscous is rather bland without much of a strong flavour on its own and needs to be prepared with seasonings, spices, sauces, or fresh herbs.
Because Israeli couscous is made from wheat flour, it is not a gluten-free food, though it is vegetarian and vegan. Israeli couscous also has a low glycemic index, making it a healthy and high-fibre food.
