Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Barley is a complete healthy package of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Barley claims to be an excellent source of molybdenum, manganese, dietary fibre, and selenium, and a good source of copper, vitamin B1, chromium, phosphorus, magnesium, and niacin. Chickpea is low in GI, and high in protein and fibre too. It also helps to lower LDL cholesterol (bad) and has a great satiety value too.
