Hello Eld, Barley is the common name of Hordeum vulgare .In hindi Barley seeds are known as "JAO".For many centuries humans have used the barley plant's seeds and leaves as food and medicine..Barley is a very good source of fiber and selenium.It also serves as a good source of the minerals phosphorous, copper and manganese. A source of B vitamins, vitamin E, and folic acid, barley seeds are also ground into flour for baking or processed for use as a cereal.Malt sugar, another common derivative of barley, is made and used as a natural laxative.Many people associate barley with making beer, but in other parts of the world it is a primary grain for food.It is also found in bread, soups, stews and museli. In Asia, barley seeds are fermented and added to soybeans, salt, and seaweed for flavoring food.Barley's dietary fiber also provides food for the "friendly" bacteria in the large intestine. For medical use barley help to alleviate diabetes, high cholesterol, and obesity. Some evidence suggests that barley seed products in the diet may improve blood sugar levels in individuals with diabetes, possibly because the fiber in barley seeds delays stomach emptying and slows down the absorption of carbohydrates from foods. Like oatmeal, barley seeds contain both soluble and insoluble types of fiber that may help to lower cholesterol. Studies have shown that individuals with barley in their diet experienced reductions in their total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL - the bad cholesterol), or triglyceride levels. Additionally, barley may assist in weight loss because it acts as an appetite suppressant making people feel like they have eaten more than they really have. Barley seeds may also protect against colon cancer.Patiens with Oedema in legs or with kidney diseases drink water boiled with barley seeds there by getting relief.

Dear Eld, barley in hindi is "Jau" Next to wheat the most valuable grain is barley, especially on light and sharp soils. It is a tender grain and easily hurt in any of the stages of its growth, particularly at seed time; a heavy shower of rain will then almost ruin a crop on the best prepared land; and in all the after processes greater pains and attention are required to ensure success than in the case of other grains. The harvest process is difficult, and often attended with danger; even the threshing of it is not easily executed with machines, because the awn generally adheres to the grain, and renders separation from the straw a troublesome task. Barley, in fact, is raised at greater expense than wheat, and generally speaking is a more hazardous crop. Except upon rich and genial soils, where climate will allow barley to be perfectly reared, it ought not to be cultivated

Barley is jao/jau. I found a lot of sites which claim barley is jowar but I have purchased sorghum flour in the U.S. which is basically jowar. So jau is barley and jowar is sorghum. Both are healthy!
