Half the world's population relies on rice
Barley - A very old food crop, but now mainly
used for brewing. Pot barley is the complete grain with outer bran, and is the
most nutritious form of the whole grain. Pearl barley is more widely available,
and the oval cream-colored grains are smooth and polished. Barley flakes are
also available and also barley flour which has a distinctively sweet flavor.
Barley flour is low in gluten-forming proteins and is not suitable for yeasted
breads, unless mixed with wheat flour.
