Contain a range of protective nutrients

Why you should should eat them

The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommends that people ‘eat a variety of grain foods, mostly whole grain and/or high cereal fibre varieties.’ Grains are recommended because they are the leading source of a range of essential nutrients in the Australian diet.

Whole grains are widely recognised as superior in comparison to processed and refined grains, as they contain a range of protective nutrients that can help improve health and prevent diseases. The body digests these intact grains more slowly and studies have shown that eating whole grains can help to improve heart health and reduce the risk of diabetes.

With a low Glycemic Index (GI), and low Glycemic Load (GL), BARLEYMAX® wholegrain has two of the key properties for the management and prevention of type 2 diabetes.

BARLEYMAX® whole grain

BARLEYMAX® is a nutritionally superior wholegrain compared to many other grains as it delivers significant nutritional and associated health benefits. The major advantage that BARLEYMAX® offers is the delivery of key nutrients, whilst keeping the bran outer shell intact.

BARLEYMAX® not only features significantly lower GI and GL than standard barley, it also has high levels of resistant starch. Resistant starch helps to maintain blood sugar levels by increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin.

I consume BARLEYMAX® for many reasons - it’s health benefits, it's delicious, it’s locally produced, and based on science.
