Organic Hulled Barley
Our organic hulled barley is a rich source of B vitamins, including niacin, thiamin, and pyridoxine (vitamin B-6). It also contains beta-glucans, a type of fiber that scientists have linked to various health benefits.
It is important to note that barley will usually expand to three and a half times its volume when cooked.
What is the difference between hulled, pearled and naked barley?
- Hulled barley undergoes minimal processing to remove only the inedible outer shell, leaving the bran and germ intact.
- Pearled barley has neither the hull nor the bran making it more soft and neutral tasting but this process strips some of the nutrients.
- Naked barley is simply a barley variety that the husks naturally fall off. They do not need to be mechanically removed. It is a whole grain like hulled barley with the bran and germ.
Locally grown in Canada, buying our organic hulled barley encourages local farmers and reduces pollution from long-distance transportation.
- Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
- Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.
- Store in the dark as light degrades flavors.
- Mason jars make great storage containers.
