Eat Your Draff

From WebMD on AOL:

Dec. 28, 2005 -- Barley foods have gotten the FDA's approval to claim that they reduce the risk of heart disease.

Starting immediately, food manufacturers can use the claim for whole-grain barley and barley-containing foods that provide at least three-fourths of a gram of soluble fiber per serving.

Consumers can expect to see the health claim for whole barley and dry-milled barley products such as flakes, grits, flour, and barley meal, an FDA news release states.

I guess malt whisky and beer don't quite cut it....
