Barley Nutritional Value:
In May 2006 the US Food and Drug Administration authorized use of a health claim for the role of beta-glucan soluble fiber from barley in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease. Barley is high in fiber and known to help reduce risk of Type 2 diabetes.
Barley History:
Ancient Greek culture used barley as a staple bread-making grain and considered it to be an important food for athletes. The athletes attributed much of their strength to their training diets containing barley. This tradition, of eating barley for strength, continued with the Roman athletes and the Gladiators were known as hordearii, which means “eaters of barley.” Barley was also highly esteemed in ancient China as a symbol of male virility because the heads of barley are heavy and contain numerous seeds.

Today the largest producers of barley are Russia and Canada with the USA ranking as 9th in the worlds production.

Tidbits of History
In the year 605 BC the biblical prophet Daniel and his three friends, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were among the young Jewish nobility to be taken into captivity in Babylon. The men remained in captivity for more than 70 years – the span of their lives – but even though captive they experienced a deep spiritual freedom by consecrating (separating) themselves unto the one true God.

The scriptures teachings that these young men had established in their hearts while still in Judah remained their standards, no matter what trials they faced. Daniel refused to eat the king’s food because it would defile his body that he already had dedicated to God. He refused to bow to the image of the king or compromise his commitment to God. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were tossed into the fiery furnace rather than abandon God in any way.

The courageous and unwavering commitment to God displayed by these men served as a powerful example of their loyalty and integrity, not only earning them unprecedented promotion in Babylon, but also protection and deliverance from danger by the God they loved. Captive in Babylon, but free in their hearts, the men prospered even under these difficult conditions.

Even more Tidbits of History
Some of the earliest archeological dating goes back 13,000 years to caves discovered in Greece. They have been an important staple over the centuries and were mentioned in the bible in Genesis 25:30-34. In this story Esau gave up his birth right for a bowl of lentils.

The Daniel-Fast explained:
Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:12

In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. Daniel 10:2-3

The Daniel Fast is a partial fast practiced by millions of Christians around the world. The definition of a biblical fast is to restrict some or all food for a spiritual purpose. The Daniel Fast is modeled after the fasting experiences of the Hebrew prophet when he and his companions were in captivity in Babylon. Not wanting to defile his body by eating the king’s food, Daniel asked to be fed only pulse (food grown from seed) and drink only water. Daniel wrote of another of his fasts in which he ate no pleasant bread (leavened), drank no wine and ate no meat. With these guidelines, the Daniel Fast eating plan can be described as a vegan diet with more restrictions.

Men, women and teens who enter a period of prayer and fasting using the Daniel Fast experience answers to prayers, a more intimate relationship with God, a significant improvement in their health and well-being and also develop positive habits for their lifestyle as followers of Jesus Christ.
