   Introduction

Barley is an important cereal crop of India, which plays a major role in the barley producing countries. Ranking of barley is next to the maize, wheat and rice both in acreage and in production of grain. Barley is a cereal grain used in large proportions as an animal feed, while the rest is used as malt in whiskey or sugar as well as health food. Barley belongs to the family of 'poaceae', a plant commonly known as grass. It is available in a variety of forms like whole barley, hulled barley, pearled barley as well as barley flakes. It is a rich source of metals like zinc, copper, phosphorous, etc. as well as other nutrients like calcium and iron.


   Description

Barley is a rugged grain, which, due to the sturdiness of the plant, can be found throughout the northern hemisphere, from Asia to the Americas. The grain itself is composed of about 5 parts. The two outermost parts are protective hulls, which cannot be eaten. Inside the hull is the aleuronic which protects the endosperm. The endosperm contains most of the starch in the grain. At the very center of a grain of barley is the pearl. Barley's green leaves contain an astounding number of vitamins and minerals. The leaves have an ability to absorb nutrients from the soil, so when barley leaves are 12-14 inches high, they contain many vitamins, minerals, and proteins necessary for the human diet, plus chlorophyll. Barley is a widely cultivated grain that is used as a food and in the brewing process. The part utilized is the grain that is left when the barley hull is removed. The grain is sometimes used as an additive for human and animal cereal foods. It also makes flavorful flour for use in baking breads and muffins.
