Health lovers are re-discovering barley flakes
The evidence is mounting! Health advocates and food lovers are turning to barley flakes as a tasty way to stabilize blood sugar levels, and add valuable trace minerals and soluble fibre to their diets.
In fact, barley has been recommended by Health Canada as an excellent source of beta-glucan, a soluble fibre now known to reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease: 1 cup per day of barley flakes provides enough beta-glucan to reduce cholesterol levels in both men and women.
Barley flakes to start the day off right
Why start the day with carbs that will leave you feeling hungry again in an hour or two? A breakfast that includes barley flake cereal or porridge will release energy more slowly into your blood stream and help you stay satisfied all morning.
Barley flakes make the perfect addition to granolas, packaged cereals and hot cereal mixes. To make hot cereal from barley flakes cook one part barley flakes to 2 or more parts water for 15 to 20 minutes and add your favourite fruits, nuts or sweetener. For a creamier porridge soak the barley flakes over night before cooking.
The super snack ingredient
Add barley flakes to granola, granola bars and other snack mixtures to enhance both flavour and nutritional value. Barley flakes are packed with nutrition and have a chewy, nutty quality that blends well with other ingredients.
