Nature’s Color™ Barley

Barley is a versatile whole grain with a chewy texture and nutty flavor, and fits into the ancient grain trend which continues to grow in popularity. Nature’s Color™ Barley delivers whole grain nutrition along with intriguing deep, rich color options. These colored grains add delicious appeal to dishes normally looking beige and bland. In addition, Nature’s Color Barley provides a clean label option for color replacement. Our Pure-Purple™ Barley and Blackjack™ Barley are water-soluble, giving a lively purple or a slate black color to your applications.
