Where to buy?
Barley products on the market include pearl or pot barley, barley flour and barley flakes.
Pot or pearl barley
You can usually find bags of pearl and pot barley next to dried beans and legumes in the grocery store.
In Western Canada, barley flour is usually available in the grocery store in a 2.5 kg bag. If you can’t find it in the bag, barley flour is available throughout the country in most health and bulk food stores. If you cannot locate barley flour, ask the manager at your local grocery store if they plan on getting some product in stock.
Barley flakes are usually available at specialty or health food stores. Again, you may have to speak with your local grocer about getting some product in stock.
