Barley, which is a source of dietary fibre, β-glucan, and antioxidants, has been used as a staple food in several areas of the world for centuries. This is because it’s rich in many nutrients and packs some impressive health benefits, ranging from improved digestion to lower cholesterol levels and a healthier heart.
Barley is rich in β-glucan, a soluble fibre which can help lower serum cholesterol in different ways, one of those is delaying intestinal absorption of glucose and lipids. Soluble fibre can also slow down digestion and absorption of nutrients which in return can reduce your appetite and promotes fullness and support weight loss.
Barley flour has a mild, distinctive and very slightly nutty flavour, it can be used in baking or for thickening stews and soups. When using Barley flour in baking just remember that Barley contains a lower level of gluten than wheat, and as a result Barley flour doughs will not rise in the same way as wheat doughs!
