Barley (Hordeum vulgare) a member of the grass family, is a major cereal grain grown in temperature climates globally. It was one of the cultivated grains, particularly in Eurasia, early as 10,000 years ago. Barley has been used as animal fodder, as a source of fermentable material for beer and certain distilled beverages and as a component of various health foods.
Barley was one of the first domesticated grains in the fertile crescent, an area of relatively abundant water in Western Asia, and near the Nile River of northeast Africa. Barley beer was probably one of the first alcoholic drinks developed by Neolithic humans.
Barley is a key ingredient in beer and whiskey production.
Nonalcoholic drinks such as barley water and roasted barley tea have been made by boiling barley in water.
Half of the United States’ barley production is used as livestock feed.
Barley straw, in England, is placed in mesh bags and floated in fish ponds.
