Introduction to Beta Glucan
Also known as
Beta Glucan, beta-glucan, soluble oat bran fibre, β-glucan

PromOat® Beta Glucan is a soluble oat bran fibre, extracted from wholegrain oats without the use of chemicals. PromOat® is a source of beta glucan, the dietary fibre in oat bran that provides important functional and health benefits. In the body, oat beta glucan helps to maintain healthy blood cholesterol levels. PromOat® Beta Glucan can give consumers access to heart-healthy foods and beverages. Its beta glucan content is 32% or greater, which makes it easy to achieve daily dosages required for specific health benefit claims. It is a versatile functional ingredient, appealing to consumers and manufacturers alike.

PromOat® Beta Glucan is a clean-label fibre from popular oats; it is soluble, clean-tasting, and neutral in colour. Not only can it be used in food and beverage formulations for its beneficial health effects, it can also thicken and stabilise emulsions, and impart an indulgent creamy mouthfeel.

Our non-GMO ingredients offer the same functionality as their traditional counterparts without compromising on taste or texture, meaning you can offer your consumers everything they’re looking for in the foods and beverages they love.
