Whole barley, also called Scotch barley, has intact bran, which is the most nutritious part of the grain. Pearled barley has been steamed and polished, a process that removes bran and fiber; it looks like a small, white pearl. Hull-less barley is an heirloom grain with a denser, chewier texture than hulled or pearled barley. It is also available in grits, flake, or flour form.
