This hardy cereal grain is native to Mesopotamia, and its use dates back to the Stone Age. Barley is the fourth most important grain in the world, after Wheat, Maize and Rice. Most of the Barley now grown in the Western world is used either for animal fodder or, when malted, in the brewing and distilling industries. Barley is an erect annual grass, producing grain in bristly-bearded terminal spikes.

Barley may commonly induce symptoms of food allergy in sensitised individuals. Symptoms may include gastrointestinal distress, atopic dermatitis and urticaria, angioedema, anaphylaxis and food-dependant, exercise-induced anaphylaxis, wheezing and baker's asthma. Cough, wheezing, shortness of breath, fever, stuffy nose, and skin itching/rash on exposure to grain dust have also been reported, as well as "grain fever". Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB.
