Barley

Conventional roller milling of dehulled barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) gives four principal products: flour, tailings flour, shorts, and bran (25). The yields, protein contents, and amino acid composition of roller-milled barley fractions have been reported (26). Barley protein concentrates from normal and high-protein, high-lysine varieties were prepared by an alkaline extraction method (27). Air classification of flour from high-protein, high yS-glucan barleys can concentrate protein in the fine fraction and concentrate /i-glucan in the coarse fraction (28).

A hulless high /?-glucan barley with 17% yS-glucan on dry basis in flour has been reported (28). A high-lysine and high-protein barley variety, Hiproly, has been described (29). Many other high-lysine barleys have also been developed since 1970 (30). Food uses of barley include parched grain, pearled grain, flour, and ground grain. About half of the total U.S. barley crop is used for malting and the remainder is used for feed.
