From what I understand, there are commercially produced matzos made from wheat (including spelt) and rye and oats.

For some reason, I cannot find commercially produced barley matzos.

Do they exist?

If so, why are they so difficult to find?

If not, why not?

  • Probably the answer to the either of the last two questions is that of lack of demand: If there aren't enough people willing to buy barley matzos (and probably pay extra for the privilege), then there is less reason/incentive to produce them.

    For what it's worth, according to the Hebrew Wikipedia's "שעורה תרבותית", Karaites eat barley matzos on Pesach, as they consider it to be "לחם עוני".
