SEMIX BARLEY MINIS ( APRICOT )
When processing the barley grain to crunchy flakes, we use a very friendly technology. The whole barley grain is first soaked, boiled, dried, matured, and then pressed and gently roasted. With this technology there is no loss of the grain outer layer (cereal germ and bran), which makes Barley Minis a good source of fiber (3g per serving) and β-Glucans (1.5g per serving) without fortification. To increase the health benefits of Barley Minis, we reduced the fat content to 2 grams per serving (Barley grain itself has 0.5g of fat per serving) and sugars to 4 grams per serving.
Barley Minis can use Health claims approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) and U.S. FDA.
