I like to purchase Pearl Barley which is smooth texture. How come i never able to find pearl barley in germany ??

Every normal supermarket has them, they are called Perlgraupen (the discounter won't have them).

 

For example, Perlgraupen cost 0.89€ for 250g at Rewe: https://shop.rewe.de/p/mueller-s-muehle-perlgraupen-250g/5010640?region_id=461799&serviceTypes=pickup&ecid=pla_google_vs_nonbr_%28shp%7Cpickup%29pm%7Cnahrungsmittel_nahrungsmittel_lia_1735261374_67830865597

827642-MM-Perlgraupen-250g-Pack-frontal-

 

You can also get them - for professional use - in a 5kg paper sack: https://www.muellers-muehle-professional.de/de/produkte/produkt/perlgraupen

For example, here, 5kg at 12.64€: https://www.mega-einkaufsparadies.de/lebensmittel/huelsenfruechte/mm-perlgraupen-5kg_864926_95254

I believe Hafer is oats. 

Maybe you are right, Isn't it oat is the ingredient for beer ? 

LOL , as you all see, quite some people don't know what the thing they eat.. so am i..
I just grew wheat (weizen) (but no idea is it weichweizen or hartweizen ) in my vege allotment here in Neuss this summer.  ..

Just to see and experience what i eat, i sown like a dozen of the grain, and i harvested a cup of it.. lol.. the thing ("tail of grain") on the wheat is quite prickly.. some of them pricked into my hard skin when i rub the grain off from the plant.. (forgive me for not using the proper term, because i don't know them).

Oh gosh I don't even know that. How come the grain shaped weird ? It is like in chunks and pieces, not like those i got from UK which all grain looks "intact" ?

If you want the larger grains, look for Graupen in the supermarket.

Perlgraupen are made from cut grains.

 

Here are Graupen on the left and Perlgraupen on the right:

For example at DM, 500g organic Graupen at 1.95€: https://www.dm.de/dmbio-getreide-gerstengraupen-demeter-p4058172629266.html

Germany grows 125% of the wheat it consumes itself (Weichweizen, i.e. what is used for white bread), see here.

--> the rest gets exported.

Please also see here: https://www.bmel-statistik.de/ernaehrung-fischerei/versorgungsbilanzen/getreide

--> scroll down to the graph at the bottom, and change the drop-down menus to:

Produkt: Weichweizen

Position: Selbstversorgungsgrad in % (= degree of self-sufficiency in %)

and you will get this:

 

Do you know what is weichweizen and hartweizen ? what's the visual difference ? I mean can we visually tell the difference between them  when i walk down farmer field ?

Hartweizen has these long "fibres/spines" that hurt your hand, which make it look similar to rye (Roggen).

Weichweizen doesn't have them.

I see, I think Pearlgraupen is processed by "grind of"  a  somewhat skin on the kernel of Graupen, which is why they look "dusty" outwardly.. and smaller.

By The way, is Graupen a viable grain seed ? I mean, is it possible to germinate with Graupen ?  I know pearlGraupen is dead seed because it has being grinded.

You said, Graupen is barley, Gerste also barley ??

So, Gerste is barley that is whole (can germinate)

while Graupen is barley  that have their outer layer removed

while Peargraupen is barley that bran are removed.

"Graupen" just describes the form, i.e. that they had the skin grinded off the grain (= peeled and polished).

Not what kind of grain they are.

 

Graupen could also be made from wheat, but they usually are made from Gerste (barley).

See here: https://de-m-wikipedia-org.translate.goog/wiki/Graupen?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-US&_x_tr_pto=wapp

This is one of the few times in my life where I am happy to be wrong. But I must say that was too stupid to not to research on this topic when this topic concerned me quite seriously. Im a hardcore grain eater, and was very disappointed after I moved to Germany seeing what is offered in local supermarkets, until I found the Denn's biomark chain. That's the grain paradise , except the expensive flohsamen. For that I visit a srilankan shop who sells it at quarter price. 

I wonder why the mainstream edeka, rewe, discounters don't offer anyrhing other than 405 or 1050 weizen. Where 405 is considered by me as a base for treats only.

Seeing the abundance of grains from @PandaMunich s reply, i must say i developed more love to this country

You're wrong ;) See PandaMunich's very detailled post. 

 

What is actually planted depends on the area you are. 

 

Around here (Rhine valley): 

Winter wheat, summer wheat, triticale, some barley, some oats, a little bit of millet (rare). All the corn/maize grown is feed (silage) quality and not suitable for human consumption. 

We generally have very good soil here and there are quite a few vegetables grown here as well - onions, scallions, leeks, radishes, beans, cabbage - which bring in more money than grains. 

 

I know that there is quite a bit of rye in Eastern Germany. 

Achtung: Dinkel = spelt, afaik 

Barley is Gerste 

 

Depending on where you are, you might find a small mill that also offers some of the more exotic grain flours for baking bread. 

Thanks 😁

You know, my friend's son were asked where egg comes from, and he said from supermarket.. That's all he knows.. ha! We are so so degenerated, not knowing where our food comes from.. only know we get food from cash. That's so wrong.

Actually, if you ask me when wheat is planted? or what's the difference between Hafer, i won't know as well..
It is not right to NOT know what we eat.. maybe it come from food printer.. lol.

This is very interesting. I would have agreed long ago. But I don't today.

There are zillions of stuff we use every day and most of us have no clue how they work. And yet nobody seems to mind. 

Where do you draw the line?

 

Most fundamental than anything else is light. How many people know how light is created and propagates?

 

We as a society operates much better if we are highly specialized.

And as a society we have high dependency from processes we do not understand and we will have problems to start them again if we ever have to, specially because there is no person who has the big picture of the process.
