Liquified oat fibers rich in beta-glucans

General

Liquified oat fibers (in powder form) rich in beta-glucans can be used in a large number of applications to add taste and nutrition. It is a natural product which forms a stable suspension and reduces the need for additives.

  • Careful selection, modification, optimization and combination of specific bio-processing and oat raw materials.

  • A patented technology for producing liquified oats from fiber-rich oat raw materials is used.

  • The use of liquified oat fibers avoids the slimy texture normally found when soluble fiber (e.g. beta-glucan) is added.

  • The use of liquified oat fibers avoids the sandy sensation normally found when insoluble fiber is added.

Health claims

The liquified oat fibers meet the EFSA regulation for the beta-glucan health claim. A 50% inclusion level of liquified oat bran results in a beta-glucan content of 0,75g/100 ml. Higher content is possible depending on application and selection of oat raw material. The technology secures the well-known cholesterol lowering properties of oats,  which has been confirmed in several clinical studies.

Health claims are targeting

  • blood glucose control

  • promotion of gut health

  • weight management
