    Barley

    Barley is one of the oldest known cereal grains to be cultivated by man. Historically known as a #1 food source, barley was a staple to the Roman gladiators, known to give strength and durance to body and soul. The Latin name for barley is hordeum vulgare, which is derived from hordearii, meaning gladiator. Aside from being a popular comfort food throughout the world, barley is highly regarded for its many healthful properties. Studies have indicated that barley has the capacity to lower blood cholesterol and help moderate blood glucose levels. It is high in fiber, rich in vitamin B, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, and is a source of calcium, protein, iron and phosphorus. Barley water is a very nutritious cooling drink that helps bring down fever. It is also useful for those suffering from bronchitis and asthma. Because barley contains hordenine, a substance noted as useful treatment for asthma and bronchitis, it can help bring relief to sufferers. Herbalists use barley concoctions to treat gravel stones and flush out kidneys and for centuries Old World doctors have recommended plain barley water (recipe below) as a first food for babies and for bedridden patients whose stomachs cannot handle solid foods. A recent study stated that drinking Mugicha increased blood fluidity. This action is caused by the chemical alkylpyrazine, which is a primary flavor in the drink according to Japanese food conglomerate Kagome.

    Barley has been cultivated since the Stone Age and fermented to make beer soon after. Folk medicine has made use of barley water, made by simply soaking barley in water, as a tonic during convalescence. "Pearl" barley is the name of the grain when it's been polished, after the husk and bran have been removed. It's the form most commonly used in soups. This grain has one significant health advantage compared to most other cereal grains (oats and corn for example) it is very low on the glycemic index. Enjoy this old fashioned, hearty soup!
