Adlai takes the spotlight

Adlai or pearl barley is a gluten-free alternative to rice. It is a filling grain that has a chewy and firm bite, similar to grains of white corn when cooked.

Mama Sita’s has put this precious grain in a kit that many would surely be interested to try. And for some, they had seen how this particular grain can be used in many ways.

Visitors to the Philippine Harvest last August were treated to a taste of Adlai Paella. Similarly, the visitors to the recently concluded 14th Agriculture and Fisheries Technology Forum and Product Exhibition held at SM Megamall Mega Trade Hall 2 had their fill of the same dish.

Mama Sita’s Adlai Paella Kit is part of Mama Sita’s line of small-batch, artisanal products that are meant to bring something more special to the table.
