Health Benefits of Barley
27 Jan' 21

 ?Barley contains about three times as much fiber per serving as oats. Barley is particularly rich in a type of soluble fiber known as beta glucan, which is recognized for its cholesterol-lowering abilities. Barley is also a good or excellent source of several vitamins and minerals.

?You can buy barley in two forms: hulled and pearled. Hulled barley is minimally processed to remove only the tough outer coating (hull). Pearled barley technically doesn't count as a whole grain, because both the hull and the seed kernel's outer coating (bran) are removed during processing. However, the beta glucans are found in the main part of the kernel (endosperm), so pearled barley is still a healthy choice.

?Light golden brown in color, hulled barley tends to have a chewier texture and nuttier flavor than pearled barley, which is cream-colored
