THE ANCIENT GRAIN FOR MODERN TIMES

Black Barley is a delicious ancient grain that is low GI and contains high amount of protein, fibre, vitamin B6 and phosphorus. It offers a nutty taste and unique texture. The beauty of this grain is that it is hull-less and is the only cereal grain that does not require further post-harvest processing, you just soak and eat or cook from paddock to plate. This is how it maintains its wholegrain health potential, coupled with the environmental benefit of less energy required for growing and processing the final product.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING, UNIQUE GRAINS THAT I’VE TASTED IN AUSTRALIA. IT HAS A WONDERFUL
CHEWY-LIKE TEXTURE AND A DELICIOUS NUTTY FLAVOUR. THE GRAIN STANDS ALONE, JUST DRESSED SIMPLY
WITH OLIVE OIL AND SALT, OR WORKED INTO MANY DIFFERENT SALADS OR DISHES.
