Pearl barley is a nutritious grain with a mild, nutty flavour and a slightly chewy texture similar to brown rice. It is high in Vitamin B and a terrific source fibre, with less than one gram of fat per serving.
Pearl Barley is especially beneficial to people with Type 2 Diabetes, as it contains beta-glucan soluble fibre, which is great for helping to manage blood sugar levels.
Use pearl barley as an alternative to rice, couscous or lentils. It makes a lovely addition to salads, as a pilaf or risotto, and, of course, it is terrific in a hearty stew!
