Beta Glucans

  What Is Barley Beta Glucans?

Beta-glucans are the soluble fibers found in cereal grains such as barley. Of all cereal grains, barley is the richest source of beta-glucan, with grain kernels containing about 3-11% by weight, compared to 3-7% in oats and less than 1% in wheat.

Beta-glucans are found naturally in the cell walls of hulled barley, which retains and contains more fibre and nutrients compared to the common barley which is normally used for cooking.


  How Does Beta-Glucan Work?

When beta-glucans are taken, they essentially form a gel-like solution in the small intestine that slows down the absorption of cholesterol, fats and glucose from the food we take - resulting in lower levels in the blood.
