    Dried Coix Seeds (Job's Tears, Yi Yi Ren or Chinese Pearl Barley), are one of the most popular food herbs used in China, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Malaysia.

    They are a type of branched grass with broad leaves.

    These are shaped like tears and come in purple, white, brown and yellow.

    Like most grains, coix seeds are rich in nutrients and may provide many health benefits.
