Whole Grain Barley

Our Whole Grain Barley is a hulless barley variety that has been adapted to grow in Canada. It is free of genetically modified organisms and commercial additives, and is more nutritious than traditional barley. 

Hulless Barley is high in Beta-glucans which are a type of soluble fibre found in barley that lowers blood cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease. One gram of beta-glucan from barley grain products equals 35% of the recommended daily intake. Beta-glucans create a feeling of fullness, and prevent fast rise in blood sugar after eating. Beta-glucans also aid in the support of the immune system and can help regulate blood sugar. All of these benefits help the fight against obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
