Studies have shown that barley has great potential for the prevention of hypercholesterolaemia and heart disease. The mechanisms of the cholesterol-lowering effect remains unclear but it seems most likely to be related to the high concentrations of beta-glucans found in barley. Barley has traditionally been unpopular for human consumption, probably because barley foods had poor texture. Food technology can now be exploited to improve the texture of barley-based foods.
