Oomugi is another name for Barley in Japanese. Clean and white like rice, the taste and aroma is hardly distinguishable from rice making it a repeatable daily diet. I used this Oomugi for my salad , because hakubaku oomugi contains 12 times the dietary fiber, three times the calcium and twice the vitamin b2 than that of white rice. Hakubaku means white barley like rice. Here's an easy way to have a healthy accompaniment to your main course or breakfast. Barley has been used to enhance the fiber content and sweet corn gives a crispy texture to the salad.
