Just Organik Organic Barley Flour
Just Organik Barley Flour has a multitude of uses in your kitchen! Thicken soups and sauces, make flaky breadings, or give your favorite baked goods a hearty, whole grain nutritional boost!
Naturally high in protein, fiber, and a variety of essential minerals (including manganese, selenium, copper, and phosphorus), barley has the lowest glycemic index of any grain (about 1/3 that of wheat), making it a great choice for diabetics. It also has a different gluten structure than wheat, meaning that some with celiac disease and wheat allergies are able to safely consume barley.
Usage: Because it is naturally lower in gluten than wheat, barley flour is not suitable as the sole flour for yeast breads. Substitute up to 30% of the wheat flour (or all purpose flour) in yeast breads and up to 50% in quickbreads, muffins, and other baked goods.
