Brady’s Black Barley

Brady’s Black Barley is an heirloom grain that traces its roots to the mountains of Tibet, and ultimately back thousands of years to the Nile River Valley. This delicious and beautiful barley is 15% protein, high in cholesterol-fighting beta glucans, and a tasty source of Potassium, Iron, and Calcium.

With its dark purple seed coat, it is also high in the disease-fighting anti-oxidants known as anthocyanins. In fact, in testing for ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), the Purple Prairie™ Barley tested over 26% – higher than cultivated blueberries!

Its sweet smoky flavor recommends it as an ingredient for soups, salads, and pilafs. Or grind it into a stunning pastel purple flour and substitute it for up to 10% of the flour in yeast bread recipes, or even as much as 50% in pancakes, muffins, or waffles.

Flavor. Color. Health benefits. No wonder it has become one of our most sought after products! You will love this barley.
