About Hakubaku Mochi Barley




Mochi Barley is a new variety of barley with more soluble fiber than conventional barley and other major grains. It’s the soluble fiber, known as beta glucan that may help reduce cholesterol and help to manage or lose weight. Securing enough beta glucan is not easy, but Mochi Barley contains beta glucan throughout the kernel – even after processing. Mochi Barley is not only the best source of beta glucan but also gives greater nutrition, favor, and texture to your favorite rice dish.
