Four Leaf's Certified Organic Stoneground Australian Barley Flour (300g)

Barley grain is low in fat, rich in carbohydrates and contains no cholesterol.

As with other whole grains such as oats, barley is an excellent source of soluble and insoluble dietary fibre. Studies have shown that the insoluble fibre found in barley can be extremely effective in maintaining regular intestinal function, thus reducing the incidence of certain types of cancer such as colon cancer.

Additionally, the soluble fibre found in barley can help lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

About Four Leaf Farms:
Four Leaf Milling Pty.Ltd. was established in 1968 to process the grain from Four Leaf Farms and to maintain control over quality of the finished grain product. Grains in our Four Leaf products are grown on our farms and other selected certified Australian Bio-dynamic and Organic farms.

Our innovative stone milling methods coupled with stringent certification and inspection requirements guarantee that products of the highest quality are produced.

Four Leaf Milling Pty Ltd is a family company. The five members of the Dunn family are all involved in this vertically integrated operation, which includes farming their 2,500 acre farm, operating their own mills and packaging and distributing their own product.

Clean, Fertile Farm:
The farm that has been certified bio dynamic since 1989 has been chemically 'clean' for the past 80 years, the only blemish being one application of super phosphate in the early 1940's. The farm is located in rich red soil country near Tarlee, South Australia's prime cereal growing area. Farming practices place great emphasis on continually improving soil.

Vertically Integrated Allowing Quality Control:
The majority of the Four Leaf products are grown on Four Leaf Farms, particularly those derived from wheat, barley, oats and rye, allowing highest quality control at all process stages. The area is considered to produce some of the best oats in Australia and Flour Leaf's bio dynamic rolled oats, which even when independently tested were found to have some of the highest levels of Vitamin E ever encountered.

Own Design and Built Milling Operation:
The family has designed and built the milling equipment used including Sienna granite stones required to meet the rigid specifications for high quality flours. These stone mills ensure the grain is milled at slow speed without excessive heat thus preserving the integrity of the quality and vitamin content of the flour.

Vast Organic/ Bio Dynamic Experience:
Gavin Dunn is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable Organic/Bio dynamic farmers in Australia, having been the founding member and Chairman of the Biological Farmers of Australia, an adviser to the Federal Government and has represented Australia on international committees.
