Organic Pot Barley
Organic Pot Barley is a type of barley grain that has the outer husk removed, but retains the bran and germ for added nutrition. This makes it a better choice than pearl barley, which has had these layers removed.
With its chewy texture and nutty flavour, organic pot barley is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, such as soups, stews, and grain bowls. It can also be ground into flour and used in baking recipes.
In addition to its delicious taste, organic pot barley is a good source of fibre, protein, and various vitamins and minerals.
Some people may choose to use organic pot barley over regular barley because it is grown using organic farming practices, which means that it is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, fertilisers, or other chemicals.
Barley (Hordeum vulgare), a member of the grass family, is a major cereal grain grown in temperate climates globally. It was one of the first cultivated grains, particularly in Eurasia as early as 10,000 years ago. Globally 70% of barley production is used as animal fodder, while 30% as a source of fermentable material for beer and certain distilled beverages, and as a component of various foods. It is used in soups and stews, and in barley bread of various cultures. Barley grains are commonly made into malt in a traditional and ancient method of preparation.
In 2017, barley was ranked fourth among grains in quantity produced (149 million tonnes or 330 billion pounds) behind maize, rice and wheat.
