List of Ingredients

Barley

 

Barley is an excellent source of soluble fiber, and so can be effective in lowering cholesterol levels.  Barley is found in two forms: hulled and pearled.
     
Hulled barley
, the form of the grain in which the bran is left intact, is exceptionally nutritious.  Because only the outer, inedible hull, and not the bran, is removed, hulled barley is rich in dietary fiber, iron, trace minerals and thiamin. Hulled barley is brown, and takes longer to cook than pearled barley.
     
To produce  Pearled barley  the barley grains are scoured six times during milling to completely remove their double outer hull and their bran layer. Unfortunately, as with white rice, this process also removes nutrients.  The grain has less iron, manganese, phosphorus, and thiamin.
      
This milling does shorten the grain's cooking time considerably.  And pearled barley is still a highly nutritious and tasty food.
