Barley flour is derived from the processing and grinding of hulled barley. Barley is a very ancient grain, belonging to the family Poaceae, native to Asia. It is the first cereal to be cultivated by man. From a nutritional point of view, barley is rich in protein, fiber, minerals (calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, zinc and silicon) and vitamins (A1, B1, B2, B3, E).
