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.



 Beta-Glucan And Healthy Cholesterol

  • Scientific evidence shows that beta-glucan significantly lowers blood cholesterol level and reduces the risk of heart disease. Consumption of diets containing 3 - 6g/day of barley beta-glucans have been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol (1,2,3).


  • The FDA have already authorised the health claim for barley β-glucan in reducing risks of cardiovascular disease.

 Beta-Glucan And Blood Sugar Management

  • With its low Glycemic Index, barley beta-glucan slows the digestion of food and the absorption of nutrient such as glucose in the small intestine – facilitating blood sugar regulation (4,5)

 Satiety & Weight Management

  • Beta-glucan fibre forms a gel-like solution that fills the stomach & decreases appetite


  • Promotes growth of healthy bacteria in the large intestine
