Barley Bread

  • Barley has been a valued grain in food products, including bread for many millennia.
  • This dense, rustic flat bread has a satisfying nutty taste and crunchy texture around the edges. It’s great served with soups and stews, or salads. It’s also nice on it’s own, spread with honey or avocado as a snack or light meal. Best served warm, right from the oven.
  • Barley contains a high level of β-glucan, fibre, amylase and antioxidants which can all contribute to good health. By substituting an amount of wheat flour with barley flour in bread researchers hope to develop a loaf that will be popular with consumers and at the same time better for them.
