Default Flaked barely

Is this used to enhance head retention? If not, what is its intended use?

Flaked barley is unmalted barley, and is probably most famously used in Dry Stouts. It will work to enhance head retention, but more than that, it really adds to the mouthfeel. Since it is unmalted, it contributes more long chained dextrins rather than fermentable sugars.
