Kashi is a traditional dish of Slavic peoples. Even in children's fairy tales they write that the bogatyrs fed exclusively whole cereals, which cannot be said about our generation.

It is important to know that barley porridge is the best option for weight loss. Barley grits are made according to the principle of barley, but with some special features.

First, whole grains of barley are not subjected to any processing (either polishing or polishing), which allows you to save more useful vitamins and minerals, as well as to reduce the level of fiber. Secondly, in the process of preparing the grains, they are simply cleaned of films and crushed into different pieces. Because of this, there are three barley variant cereals - from the smallest to the largest. Also on the shelves you can find a mixed type of cereals.

Barley itself has a fairly high caloric level (more 310 kcal per 100 grams of product), but among the entire line of popular cereals - this is a very low content.
