Barley beta-glucans and functional foods

BarleyBarley beta-glucans are dietary fibre with ability to form viscous water solutions. Modern technology enables preparation of concentrated sources of barley beta-glucan to improve human nutrition and deliver numerous health benefits. Superior biological activity can be achieved by state-of-the art production procedures that do not involve the use of chemicals or enzymes. Employment of such ingredient enables production of functional foods with scientifically proven beneficial effects on human health – besides effects in cholesterol management and contribution to lowering the glycaemic response – beta-glucans are also known for improving gut health.
