THE "KORNELIJA" VARIETY
Kornelija is a new variety of hulless (naked) barley developed in Latvia. This variety is especially suitable for production of niche and functional products including whole grain food.
Kornelija barley is characterized by a unique set of features: excellent chemical composition and great dietary value, they are a source for food with a high level of proteins and beta-glucans.
Kornelija variety are suitable for development of classic products like flakes, pearls, bread, and other products, but also are favorable for development of new niche product recipes (especially for people who have to follow specific diets), as well as new (innovative) functional foods – muesli, energy bars, drinks and other recipes.
The unique composition of grain and excellent dietary value have the following excellent features: rich in protein, β-glucans (soluble fibres) and biologically active compounds.
Genetically determined potential to produce coarse and biochemically high-value grains: at relatively lower doses of mineral nitrogen and in conditions of organic farming.
Very early ripening: excellent pre-culture for wintering species, ensures diversity of species in crop rotation.
Cheaper and up to 10-times faster grain handling and processing: high production yield, cost effective source of protein and beta-glucans.
