Is Barley a superfood?

The simple answer is YES.

This ancient grain, which is often overlooked today packs an impressive nutritional punch. Not only is barley a low-glycemic grain but it is also high in fibre, selenium, magnesium, niacin and Vitamin B1.

 Adding barley to your diet can help lower cholesterol and blood sugar levels. It is also thought to aid digestion and help weight loss. This is all great unless you have a gluten intolerance or a sensitive digestive system when you should seek medical advice before adding barley to your diet.

Barley grass on the other hand if harvested at the right time is gluten-free so can be enjoyed by those with gluten intolerances. High in Vitamin A and Vitamin E, it can support a healthy immune system and healthy skin, hair and eyes.

At Britt's Superfoods, our barley grass is field grown, organic, freshly pressed and instantly frozen to preserve the health-giving nutrients, chlorophyll and beneficial enzymes.
