Beta glucan oat bran is a dietary fibre present typically in oats and barley. The beta-glucan content in whole grain oat varies from 2 to 8% of dry weight, whereas the beta-glucan content of oat bran concentrate is usually between 15 and 35% of dry weight.
Oats and oat bran concentrates have light colour and mild taste and thus beta-glucan can be incorporated into a wide variety of innovative food products. Beta-glucan is able to produce high viscosity in quite low concentrations due to the high molecular size and water-solubility. This viscosityforming property of oat beta-glucan is a challenge for food formulators but has an important physiological impact on its ability to increase the viscosity in the gut and reduce serum cholesterol and blood glucose rise in humans.
On the basis of numerous clinical studies on these effects, in 2011 the European Commission authorisd a health claim on foods which provide at least 1 g beta glucan oat bran per quantified portion (3 g beta-glucan/day). A health claim is any statement on labels, advertising or other marketing products indicating a relationship between food or its constituents and health. In December 2006, the European Union adopted a Regulation on the use of nutrition and health claims for foods. One of the key objectives of this Regulation is to ensure that any claim made on a food label in the EU is clear and substantiated by scientific evidence.

Beta Glucan Oat Bran Benefits:
1.Support the Immune System
Beta-glucans are known as biological response modifiers. This is because they activate the immune system. The immune-boosting benefit has been specifically linked to beta-glucan from yeast and medicinal mushrooms.
2. Lower Cholesterol and Enhance Heart Health
There’s evidence that beta-glucan can help boost heart health by lowering cholesterol and triglycerides. Triglycerides are one of the most common types of fat in the body. When you combine high triglycerides and bad cholesterol with low levels of good cholesterol, your risk of stroke and heart attack increases.
3. Improve Gut Health
We already know that a healthy microbiome helps produce the antibodies we need to fight off disease. Research shows that mushrooms act as a prebiotic to stimulate healthy growth of good bacteria in the gut. A healthy gut microbiome is linked to a lot of benefits like a strong immune system, brain health, heart health, good sleep, and improved mood. To boost your beta-glucan intake, try incorporating some reishi or oyster mushrooms into your diet.
4. Decrease Inflammation
It’s thought that beta-glucans can decrease the body’s inflammatory response. Beta-glucans from fungi have been found to exhibit a range of activities including anti-tumor, immune-stimulating, and anti-inflammatory effects. The anti-inflammatory effect comes from beta-glucans’ ability to regulate inflammatory markers in the body.
5. May Fight Cancer
Beta-glucans may be able to treat cancer by activating certain immune cells and triggering a defensive response in the body. More research is still needed to find out the precise effect that beta-glucan has on the spread of cancer.
6. Regulate Blood Sugar Levels
Beta-glucan could be an effective way to manage diabetes as it helps to regulate blood sugar levels. Both oat and fungal beta-glucans have been shown to reduce blood glucose levels. By helping to regulate blood sugar levels, it could reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and may help to improve blood sugar levels in people with diabetes.
Research suggests that beta-glucan isn’t enough to regulate blood sugar levels alone, but it could potentially be used as a complementary method alongside a healthy diet.
7. Lower Risk of Obesity
In America, more than two in three adults are considered to be overweight or obese. Obesity is a global problem that can have disastrous impacts on health and quality of life. Beta-glucan may help to reduce the risk of obesity.
