Free in Babylon Barley and Vegetable

This is one of four soups that are marked by their odd names. A woman near our factory asked us to make 4 soups in 2011 that were okay to eat on a Daniel Fast diet. Each of the soups has only whole grains, no sugar, no animal products and nothing artificial

Barley Nutritional Value:
In May 2006, the US Food and Drug Administration authorized the 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 is known to help reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Barley History:
Ancient Greek culture used barley as a staple bread-making grain and was considered 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 barley producers are Russia and Canada, with the USA ranking as 9th in the world’s production.

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, but even though captive, they experienced 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. Captive in Babylon, but free in their hearts, the men prospered even under these challenging conditions.
