israeli couscous curiosity....

No matter how I have prepared israeli couscous, it tastes musty and like plastic. I have sauteed veggies and added nuts and used broth, salted well, and it still tastes the same. I have tried 2 different brands, one toasted, and all from a popular mediterranean food store, so I know they're 'fresh'. I've also pre-sauteed all the ingredients before adding the broth. I love the texture, but can't get past that plastic/rubber packaging flavor. Anyone else have a similar result?
