BARLEYmax® Story

The health credentials of BARLEYmax® begin with its history. In the late 1990s, CSIRO researchers developed a collection of new, non-GM barley grains through conventional breeding processes and then assessed their potential to improve health by delivering high levels of resistant starch and other dietary fibre components.
Subsequently, one particular opportunity emerged – a new type of barley grain that went on to become BARLEYmax®.
