These Barley Flakes are made by rolling plain barley, this is why they are wholegrain. The majority of non-organic barley flakes are made from rolling pearled barley, which does not result in a wholegrain flake as pearling removes the outer hull and often much of the bran.
They make a delicious and satisfying hot cereal, similar to porridge and can also be used in a variety of baking.
