Whole Grain Barley Flour


   Against the Grain  beta-glucan barley is a hulless barley variety that has been adapted to grow in Canada. It is free of genetically modified organisms and commercial additives, and is more nutritious than traditional barley.  It adds a delicious nutty flavour to your cooking & baking. ATG barley flour has half the gluten of most wheat flours. 

   Hulless barley is high in beta-glucans which are a type of soluble fibre found in barley that lowers blood cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease. One gram of beta-glucan from barley grain products equals 35% of the recommended daily intake. Beta-glucans create a feeling of fullness, and prevent fast rise in blood sugar after eating.
