Default Barley flakes question

A local produce market has barley flakes, not flaked barley. The info says the barley is dry roasted, then rolled. I'm wondering if I would need to cook them before using?

Flaked barley is steam processed to pre-gelatinize the starches, then rolled. I'd say cook them and the flavor will probably be different.

A coop around my area sells steam rolled barley. I didn't know what that meant. Neither did they. So I didn't buy any.

I will give them a try in a dry stout I plan to brew in the next few weeks. I'll cook them for 10 min. or so first. Thanks for the input(s)!

Steam processing of grains was originally developed to make the grain easier to digest. 'Puffing' does the same thing.

So is steamed rolled grains not suitable for brewing?
