Nature’s Color™ Barley

Barley is a versatile whole grain with a chewy texture and nutty flavour, 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 colour options. These coloured grains add delicious appeal to dishes normally looking beige and bland. In addition, Nature’s Color Barley provides a clean label option for colour replacement. Our Pure-Purple™ Barley and Blackjack™ Barley are water-soluble, giving a lively purple or a slate black colour to your applications.
