barley grass powder (BGP) with great interest.[1] and
Iyer concluded that “BGP holds promise to be used
as a functional food to optimise the health of diabetic

First, the work lacks exact control over health subjects.
Second, the laboratory procedures need confirmation
and verification with regard to quality. The quality
control on all laboratory analyses in this work is not
well clarified. The disturbance of haemoglobin A1C
data by the occulted haemoglobin disorder is possible
and cannot be ruled out. Finally, it should be noted that
allergy to barley grass is possible, and this should be a
point to be kept in mind.[
