abstract: The two year project for boosted usage of barley in Europe involves nine partners who represent six countries in Europe. The five SME partners in the consortium seek R&D expertise to develop a novel milling concept for European barley, to produce barley kernels/fractions with a higher level of health components than barley from conventional milling. This potentially opens new markets for the milling industry. It will also increase their milling capacity, reduces waste and create a competitive advantage in terms of diversifying milling and bakery product ranges. Finally it creates opportunities for equipment manufacturers to sell more monitoring and milling systems. There are three main objectives in the BARLEYboost project: 1) To develop monitoring tools for analysis and control of the barley pearling process (during milling), for flour quality analysis, and for end product quality. 2) To develop an innovative barley milling process to enrich different grain tissues and health component. 3) To develop new food products by using barley fractions with proven health claims. The research work will be carried out on behalf of the SME's by Nofima, VTT and INRA. The SME's in the consortium includes a cooperative of barley growers, Norsk Mat Bygg, the milling company, Stangeland Mølle, two bakeries, Råde Bakeri and Hallik AS, and the instrumentation company Perten. Advice and input to the project will be provided by a global specialist in the supply of plants and services for processing grain Bühler AG.
