What exactly is pearl barley?
Pearl barley, a super food, is a high-fiber high-protein refined grain with a rich nutty flavor and a chewy pasta-like consistency. There are so many benefits to our quick cooking barley. The chewy texture makes it a healthier alternative to rice and its nutty flavor adds flavor depth to your stews, pastas, casseroles and more. Barley can be cooked with your favorite meats to help compliment savory flavors, and even your sweet from breakfasts to desserts!
But why is our barley different?
Mochi’s varietal tends to contain more soluble and insoluble fiber and has a much different starch composition. While regular barley’s starch consists of both Amylose and Amylopectin, Mochi Mugi’s starch is mostly Amylopectin.
Traditional barley can take 45-60 minutes! But ours cooks in only 15-20. The secret is in our manufacturing process and the particular strain of the grain itself. Mochi barley is in a class of its own when it comes to nutrition and simplicity of use.
But while you may know how healthy, nutritious and yummy it is, preparing barley can be super easy too.
