Pearl barley has been likened to brown rice, thanks to its mild nutty flavour and tender, chewy texture. It’s about as versatile, too. A welcome addition to most meals that’s rich in nutrients and health benefits.

    • May assist in managing blood sugar levels and cholesterol levels (beta-glucan fibre)
    • Promotes healthy digestion and gut health (fibre)
    • Protects bone structure and joint health (magnesium and iron)

    What goes in.

    Biodynamic pearl barley.

    What's kept out.

    Pesticides, insecticides and fungicides.

    Did you know?

    Did you know barley needs to be soaked prior to cooking? Like all whole grains, these nutritional gems have an outer shell containing anti-nutrients that our bodies find difficult to digest. Rinse them off (and boost the vitamins, minerals, protein and antioxidant levels) by soaking the barley for at least 2-4 hours before whipping up your meal.

    Geography.

    Grown in the Grampians, Victoria.

    Mount Zero

    As one of the oldest olive groves in Australia, the Mount Zero olive grove has stood the test of time. Located at the base of the Grampians northernmost summit, it’s home to 6000 Spanish Manzanilla and Gordal olive trees. Mount Zero is a family-owned-and-operated business that’s committed to flavour and quality; their values are evident in every olive, every jar. Speaking of commitment, it only harvests using biodynamic farming; a natural, eco-friendly approach to farming that avoids synthetic intervention. The grove is self-sustaining — it feeds the trees directly from the soil humus rather than chemical inputs, and the energy supply is sourced from off-grid wind and solar generators.
