Barley, Pearl

Barley, Pearl

Pearl barley is a barley that is polished to give it “market appeal”. Barley is an ancient grain, being mentioned in early historic writings. Barley is mentioned in the Bible as one of the crops of Egypt (Exodus 9:31), and was an ingredient in the bread that God told Ezekiel to bake (Ezekiel 4:9). 33 grams of barley (1/4 cup, dry) contains no fat, 24 grams of complex carbohydrate (96 calories), 3 grams of protein (12 calories), and 5 grams of dietary fiber.
