Thank you Freedom Foods for creating such an amazing Barley+ range, full of a good mix of fibres. I am impressed with the products in terms of their low GI value, very high fibre content (and 3 types of fibre), easy and healthy snack bars (portion controlled); beta-glucan for cholesterol management, prebiotic for Butyrate production, and the list goes on. I am a big fan of Barley+. I am already recommending the products to my patients/clients for healthier gut. My gut feeling says this product will make my gut a very happy and healthier one. Thank you again for the products and the science behind them in support.
As a gut specialist and lecturer in nutritional medicine, I’ve see hundreds of patients who have struggled with ‘funny tummies’. Barley+ is a super exciting nutritional addition that can easily be incorporated into people’s lives and their busy schedules. It brings to life the concept of using food as medicine and has the science to back up it’s use. I have been wholeheartedly recommending the Barley+ range to my patients and see it as a valuable inclusion in a healthy diet.
I’ve been recommending the Barley+ products to my patients ever since the range was launched through Coles a few months ago. The response from patients has been extremely positive, for both the muesli cereals and the bars. I’ve always demonstrated the health benefits of these products to the patients, with particular emphasis on the high soluble fibre content as well as the resistant starch. Once patients have understood the benefits of improved blood sugar control and effective lowering of LDL cholesterol , they are more than happy to purchase them. With the increasing interest in gut microbiota and the public’s desire to improve gut health, the Barley+ range stands alone and is unique due to its high fibre content. It’s important to point out that the BARLEYmax grain used in these products is not a genetically modified grain as some might fear, but a barley cultivar which has been developed by the CSIRO. Some of my patients have even asked me if I have shares in this product because I’m so enthusiastic about recommending it. There is certainly nothing else like it offering such health benefits on the Australian market and it tastes good too!
I have been using the Freedom Food Barley+ Muesli Bars with my diabetes patients and they have been finding them a great snack option that not only tastes good but is high in fibre, low GI and keeps them full while maintaining their blood glucose levels in an acceptable range.
The Barley+ range provides an excellent source of fibre and they are so tasty. Gone are the days of high fibre foods tasting like you are chewing the cardboard box. Both muesli flavours have a balance of fruit and nuts along with the grains. The muesli bars are nicely sweet with sustained energy without a sugar rush then crash. A perfect afternoon snack.
Thank you to Freedom Foods for supplying our clinic with the Barley+ muesli bars recently. The muesli bars are delicious and were provided to our patients as morning tea while attending our group education day. It is difficult to find nutritious convenient muesli bars to recommend to clients and patients, however these are an excellent product to suggest. The bars provide around 8-9g of fibre, 500-550kJ and 15g carb serve . They are low in sodium, saturated fat and sugars. An ideal bar for our patients and clinicians to eat when hungry between meals.
Barley+ bars and cereals are not only a valuable source of fibre but they also taste great! I recommend them to my patients, colleagues and family to keep them fuller for longer and keep their bowels regular. They come in a wide range of flavours and there’s sure to be one to please everybody (even my fussy tradie husband enjoys them!)
