Bulk Pearl Barley

Pearl Barley

Midlands provides bulk supply of Pearl Barley as a food ingredient for your business. As an established company producing a wide variety of arable foods, we are proud of the quality of our bulk supply Pearl Barley we deliver to businesses for the international market. If you are looking for high quality cereals, we have options available for you.

Pearl Barley is barley that has had its hull and bran removed. The outer shell is fibrous and must be removed before consumption. Used mainly in soups and stews, it is the most common form of barley for human consumption because it cooks faster and is less chewy than other, less-processed forms of the grain such as hulled barley. Pearl Barley colour ranges from tan for lightly pearled barley to white heavily pearled barley. Pearl barley is similar to wheat in its caloric, protein, vitamin and mineral content. Although it is technically a refined grain, it’s much healthier than other refined grains because the fibre is present in the kernel as well as the hull.
