Barley is one of the healthiest cereal, it contains soluble fiber and beta-glucan that keeps hunger pangs at bay. Also, it is a low GI food, which makes it suitable for diabetics. It also has a very chewy, pasta-like consistency. Besides this barley claims to be an excellent source of molybdenum, manganese, and selenium. Barley is also a good source of copper, vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin.
