LONDON SUPERFOODS ORGANIC BARLEY 350G
Naked barley is a type of barley in which the husks easily shed from the grains. Because the grain falls from the ear without the need for processing, naked barley is suitable for milling and eating right from harvest. As such, it is a natural wholegrain with a range of culinary applications. It is excellent for baking and recommended for cookies, cakes, muffins, pancakes and quick breads. Like rye, barley does not have the gluten levels required to raise bread sufficiently so it is usually added to wheat flour for baking leavened bread where it adds valuable fibre, nutrients and flavour. It is eaten whole in stews, soups and salads. Currently Barley is the fourth most important grain after rice, wheat and maize.
