According to the nutritionist, one popular cereal contains a relatively high amount of phosphorus, which is essential for the cardiovascular system, tooth enamel, and skeletal tissue.
Health-conscious people should include pearl barley in their diet.
According to her, this cereal contains a lot of phosphorus, which is indispensable for the cardiovascular system, tooth enamel, and skeletal tissue. “In addition, pearl barley contains potassium, calcium, iron, and the valuable amino acid lysine, which stimulates collagen production. This is the very protein that directly affects the appearance and health of our skin, which is why pearl barley is called “beauty porridge,” she said.
Korablyova also noted that pearl barley is a dietary product that is low in fat (1.1 grams per 100 grams). There are practically no medical contraindications to the cereal. The only exception is gluten intolerance, which is contained in pearl barley.
“The most important thing is not to overeat: pearl barley provokes gas formation. For the same reason, children under three years old should not be fed this cereal, even if it is well cooked. In general, for comfortable digestion, barley should be cooked for a long time: at least 50 minutes, and it is better if you soak the cereal overnight,” she advised.
