Made from barley that has been cut into 6 pieces per grain, SHILOH FARMS Organic Barley Grits offer all of the nutritional benefits of whole barley, but cook in a fraction of the time! Because our grits are made from hulled barley (as opposed to pearl barley), they are considered a whole grain product, with 46 grams of whole grains per serving. These tiny chunks of the barley grain can be substituted in most recipes calling for grits and can easily take the place of hominy grits for those with corn allergies.
A versatile cereal grain with a rich, nutty flavor, barley is naturally high in protein, fiber, and a variety of essential minerals (including manganese, selenium, copper, and phosphorus). It has the lowest glycemic index of any grain (about 1/3 that of wheat), making it a great choice for diabetics. Barley also has a different gluten structure than wheat, meaning that some with celiac disease and wheat allergies are able to safely consume barley.
To Cook: Add 1 part Barley Grits to 4 parts of boiling water. Lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the grits are cooked to your preference.
1. For a hearty breakfast, serve cooked barley grits with milk and Shiloh Farms Raw Alfalfa Honey. Top with your favorite combination of dried fruit, nuts and/or seeds for added flavor and texture.
2. Use as binder in meatless patties, or a tenderizer with low-fat ground meats in meatloaf and burgers.
3. Add raw to soups and stews, where barley grits cook in about half the time of whole barley.
4. Try them as a substitute for whole barley or rice in casseroles or rice pudding recipes.
5. Do not use where a fluffy grain texture is called for as they will cook to a stickier texture than whole grain.
48 grams of whole grain per serving.

I was looking for an organic hulled barley grits, mostly for the fiber and
for the ease of cooking. I was not sure I would actually like them though.
But I do! I eat them with flax seed, grass fed milk and honey. They
are delicious. I look forward to eating them most mornings for
breakfast. Along the way I have discovered that in ancient times
there was a group of athletes that ate barley for strength and energy.
Now that I am a barley eater, I think I feel stronger as well :) :)
