Beta-glucan found in barley is a soluble fiber-type complex sugar (polysaccharide) derived from the cell wall of barley fibre. Oats and barley contain a mixture of beta-1,3-glucan and beta-1,4-glucan. Recent research has concluded that the optimum period for peak nutritional activity is just before a grain head sprouts. This is the primary time when its nutrients and enzymes are then active. A patented process which, via heat, humidity and pressure, allows Pre-Sprouted Barley to be harvested.
The Barley itself comes from closely supervised organic crops, grown in Northern Scandinavia in the land of the Midnight Sun. Attention is particularly given to maintaining good farming practice. Soil depletion is studiously avoided with fallow seasons being observed. In this way a consistency of grain and nutritional content is achieved. Old stone-mills are used to mill the grain, ensuring the fibres remain whole.
