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.
Rolled Barley is a nutritious breakfast alternative to the usual rolled oats, but can also be added in baking, breads and stews.
