  2. Barley is very healthy for sportspeople. Its germinated grains and wholegrain groats contain a great complex of the substances stimulating energy and protein metabolism, as well as accelerating transmission of nerves to muscles. In right combination with other products, they are used both for building-up physique and overcoming muscle fatigue after intense physical activities.

  3. Pearl barley is popular in Eastern and Western Europe. It is added to broths and soups in Scotland and Scandinavia. Orzotto – the barley equivalent for risotto – is widespread in northern Italy.

Chemical composition of a product is characterized by calories, proteins, fats, carbohydrates, dietary fibres and vitamins. For organic products, these parameters significantly depend on natural factors – air temperature and precipitation during vegetational season, dry or rainy season, geographic latitude and longitude of cultivation, botanical grain varieties, and soil type. It is impossible to foresee all the factors, so these values are average and indicative only.
