What is the difference between barley and wheat?

2 Answers

They are very similar. Wheat is ground without the outer bran layer that contains most of the fibre, while barley is consumed as a whole grain or in pearled form. Both grains contain a similar amount of gluten, thus making them unsuitable for people with gluten allergies or celiac disease.

While both grains are nutritious, barley is richer in fiber and cholesterol-lowering beta-glucan and loses fewer nutrients during processing than wheat. However, important nutrients are added back to wheat flour that's milled before using it to create pasta, cereals, and breads.
