Aktivated® Barley is a pre-sprouted grain which can be taken throughout the day to increase carbohydrate intake for a number of different sports.
The beta-glucans found within the barley can contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. Due to this being a low GI source of carbohydrate this can also contribute to the reduction of the blood glucose rise after it is consumed.
Aktivated® Barley is ideal for anyone looking to increase daily carbohydrate intake in the form of a low GI source of carbohydrate.

Thought I'd try this product as a way of increasing my carb intake. On its own with water or milk is drinkable but tastes like flour so I mix it with some flavoured protein and instant oats to make a nice post workout shake or meal replacement. Also quite nice as an alternative for flour when making pancakes, just mix the Barley with some oats, milk and eggs.
"It's hard to beat for it's nutrient and fibre content and being low GI as well it's ideal for a breakfast shake. It's a bit gritty though and doesn't really dissolve as such, it just seems to get held in suspension temporarily! If you're having this in a shake, don't pour it into a glass after mixing in the shaker otherwise you'll have an inch of silt to fight through at the bottom of the glass. Instead drink it straight from the shaker (leave the wire ball in) and give it a swill round after every couple of mouthfulls. It is expensive compared to oats but given the far superior nutrient profile of this and it's ultra low GI it's not really a fair comparision. If you're just having one scoop a day it lasts so long that the cost isn't that noticable."
This is a great carb source if you want complex. The taste is nice and mixes well the only thing to let it down is its gritty texture.
got my activated barley this morning and used it in a shake with milk and chocolate whey80. It has minimal taste and smell with a floury consistency. I mixed it with a hand blender and the shake had a slight 'gritty' feel but was fine no lumps just tiny pieces. Mixed this way it tasted similar to instant mass by reflex. So my verdict is it was a very good alround product and i would definately recommend it to others! \r\n
