What is Barley? - Information & uses

Grass-family member barley (Hordeum vulgare) is a common cereal grain farmed all over the world in temperature climates. It was one of the first grains to be farmed, especially in Eurasia 10,000 years ago. Globally, 30% of barley production is used as a source of fermentable material for beer and some distilled drinks, as well as an ingredient in a variety of dishes, and 70% is used as animal feed. It is a component of many cultures' barley bread as well as soups and stews. Commonly, barley grains are processed into malt using an old-fashioned technique.
