Science and Research
study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition compared
the effects of cooked barley grains and refined wheat bread on blood
sugar levels in 10 healthy men. It showed that when barley was eaten for
dinner, the insulin sensitivity was improved by 30%. Another study done
in Japan showed that barley lowered the post meal glucose levels when
it was substituted with a high-glycemic index rice.
