Details

Cultivated thousands of years ago, barley is one of the oldest known cereal grains. It is a hearty grain with a sweet nut-like flavor. Barley is a good source of dietary fiber. Studies have shown that dietary fiber, specifically soluble fiber, can aid in the reduction of cholesterol. Barley contains a special type of fiber that is especially good for the reduction of cholesterol called beta-glucan. Beta-glucans also aid in the support of the immune system and can help regulate blood sugar. Barley Grits/Meal can be substituted in recipes calling for corn grits or corn meal, or used in your favorite polenta recipe (the meal is slightly stickier than cornmeal). It also makes a satisfying hot breakfast cereal.

More flavor then regular gits
I love these barley grits - I add minced garlic when I cook them and top with parsley and some grated cheese and maybe a poached egg. Review by JLM / (Posted on 8/28/2010)
