Our customers are loving Hodmedods Organic naked barley!
Long before we ate modern wheat, naked barley sustained us. Well suited to our climate, Bronze Age farmers would be very familiar with this nutritious, malty cereal. Unlike most barley, where the inedible husk is tightly stuck to the grain, the husks fall off the naked barley grain when it's harvested and threshed, leaving the tasty and nutritious wholegrain ready to use.
The grains can be cooked and eaten whole. Delicious in a soup or more adventurous in a risotto or simply as a side instead of rice.
The Nutritional Value of Whole Barley is a very healthy grain. It’s rich in vitamins, minerals and other beneficial plant compounds. It’s also high in fiber, which is responsible for most of its health benefits, ranging from a better digestion to reduced hunger and weight loss. What’s more, making barley a regular ingredient in your diet may offer protection from chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease and even certain types of cancer.
This product will come in a reused, sterilised jar where possible.
