Living Tree Community Foods Raw Organic Tibetan Black Barley is provided by Oregon Grain & Bean, with this crop grown on an organic farm in Idaho. Tibetan Black Barley, with its bran intact, retains its firm, plump texture during cooking, making it perfect in soups, stuffings and stews. It’s also great when mixed with other grains due to its somewhat chewy, contrasting texture.

Black barley gets its deep color from its high antioxidant level of anthocyanin. While also found in red cabbage and beets, this antioxidant is said to be more stable in grains than in vegetables. Black barley is also high in beta glucans-a soluble fiber. This helps to lower cholesterol and reduce glycemic levels, thus lowering the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

To cook this whole grain, combine one part Black Barley with three parts water and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover with a lid until barley is soft—check around 60 minutes. Drain any excess water (if necessary) then fluff with a fork to separate the grains. Enjoy our Organic Tibetan Black Barley as a side dish, in a summer salad or soup.
