What is Oat Beta Glucan? Beta Glucan is polysaccharide of D-glucose monomers linked by β-glycosidic bonds. Beta Glucan is a diverse group of molecules that can vary with respect to molecular mass, solubility, viscosity, and three-dimensional configuration. They occur most commonly as cellulose in plants, the bran of cereal grains, the cell wall of baker's yeast, certain fungi, mushrooms and bacteria. Some forms of beta glucans are useful in human nutrition as texturing agents and as soluble fiber supplements, but can be problematic in the process of brewing.
Oat is a rich source of the water-soluble fibre (1,3/1,4) Beta Glucan, and its effects on health have been extensively studied the last 30 years. Oat Beta Glucan Powder are the only dietary fiber being recognized by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to be able to reduce a disease risk. Oat Beta Glucan Powder can be highly concentrated in different types of oat brans.
Oat β-Glucan is a soluble dietary fiber in Oats, it has obtained the health claims of FDA and EFSA.
The NHFPC has also approved it as a new food raw material in December 19th, 2014.

Main Funcation of Oat Beta Gluan 1.High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Oat β-Glucan has been proven to lower the cholesterol for a healthy heart because it can increase viscosity in the intestines. So it can prevent the fat, cholesterol and bile acid being absorbed by the digestive tract.
2.Oat β-Glucan has been proven to reduce glycemic response reduced sugar level.
3.Oat β-Glucan is a viscous soluble dietary fiber that can promote satiety because of its high viscosity and water binding capacity. Because Oat β –Glucan is a low calorie food, it can be added to the formula foods for use in very low energy diets for weight reduction.
4.Oat β-Glucan can improve bowel function and promote digestive health.
