So, what is barley starch?

Barley starch is a versatile ingredient derived from the grains of barley, a cereal crop commonly used in food production. It is a fine white powder with excellent thickening and gelling properties, making it a popular choice in various applications, from soups and sauces to baked goods and snacks. Barley starch is also known for its high resistance to heat and acid, which makes it suitable for use in acidic food products, such as fruit juices and dressings. Additionally, it is a gluten-free alternative to wheat starch, making it ideal for individuals with gluten intolerance or celiac disease.
