Barley is a very old, light digestible grain that is available nationwide. Barley was the most edible grain in Europe before wheat took this roll over. Barley flakes are also often found in muesli and bread. Barley is an excellent source of nutritional fibers, that contributes to a good digestion. Barley contains also relatively much proteins, and is a good source of a big number of minerals, among which mangaan, selenium, magnesium, copper and phosphorus. In order to make the flakes, the moisture content of the grain is raised by means of steam. The grains are then flattened by flattening machines, where they come out as flat flakes. It is almost impossible to flatten grains without steam, because the extra moisture makes sure that the grains are flattened instead of crumbled.
