WHAT IS AKTIVATED® BARLEY?
Aktivated® Barley provides an alternative carbohydrate source that is both low GI (20-30) and high in fibre. Aktivated® Barley is a great carbohydrate source to incorporate in to your own weight gainer or meal replacement formula.
Aktivated® Barley is a slow release, low glycemic index carbohydrate source. It is rich in beta glucan, fibre, highly bioavailable proteins, essential fats, enzymes and minerals.
Aktivated® Barley is formed when organic barley is put through a unique patented process called the OFO-Method™, named so after its Swedish inventor Owe Forsberg. This process involves exposing organic barley to differing levels of pressure, humidity and temperature. These applications significantly increase the energy and nutritional levels of the barley whilst activating previously dormant enzymes.
Organic Barley has always been a popular source of nutrition, and is commonly found in cereals, oat-based foods and soups. Aktivated® Barley however is not widely available. It is a ‘premium’ food source that would make cereals unaffordable to most if it were used as the main source. It is however being used more commonly in the sports nutrition industry as an addition to meal replacements due to its impressive nutritional profile.
***Unless you see the ‘®’ symbol then the product you are looking at does not use the patented process that produces Aktivated® Barley. ***
