Food Industry

Barley is Canada’s newest superfood, and was recently approved by Health Canada to claim that eating barley helps reduce blood cholesterol, a risk factor for heart disease. Barley is also very high in fibre, and as the third largest crop in Canada, it is locally grown.

Traditionally, barley has been recognized as an ingredient in recipes such as beef barley soup, but barley has numerous ingredient alternatives. Barley and its products add texture and flavour to soups, stews, salads, and countless other dishes.

SaskBarley works collaboratively with the Barley Council of Canada and other provincial barley commissions to further develop the food barley market. For more information and barley recipes, visit the Go Barley website.
