• What is Barley?

Barley is cereal grain with a rich nutty flavor and chewy consistency.Barley is a primary go-to grain, as it gives a delicious flavour and texture to more dishes beyond the classic winter soup. Barley does contain gluten. 

  • Why should I use Barley?

As well as being high in fibre and protein, barley also packs good sources of selenium, manganese and phosphorus. It is a simple and delicious substitute for ingredients such as rice, pasta or cous cous.

  • How can I use Barley?

Pearled Barley has been polished, removing the bran layers of the whole grain. The pearl/hulling process leaves a pale, creamy-coloured grain that cooks much easier and faster than unhulled barley, and it is less chewy. Enjoy pearl barley as a tasty addition to soups, salads, stews or as a simple side dish. Use in place of rice in a risotto.
