About

Organic Pearled Barley is a popular nutritious grain with a mild nutty flavour. Pearled barley has been lightly milled to remove part or all of the germ and bran, leaving just the 'pearl' inside.

Served Best

Organic Pearled Barley may be cooked and served as a side dish similar to rice or couscous. Once cooked, it can be used in salads, to thicken soups, broths or stews or for stuffing.

How To Cook

Organic pearled barley cooks faster than unhulled barley grain and is less chewy. To cook, simmer 1 part barley in 4 parts water for 30-45mins.

Benefits

Barley is a particularly rich source of fibre, molybdenum, manganese and selenium. It contains good amounts of copper, vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium and niacin. Additionally, barley packs lignans, a group of antioxidants linked to a lower risk of cancer and heart disease. Barley contains soluble fibre, which reduces hunger and enhances feelings of fullness. Barley’s high fibre content helps food move through your gut and promotes a good balance of gut bacteria, both of which play important roles indigestion.
