Orafti® β-Fit, rich in beta-glucans for heart health solutions.

Orafti® β-Fit is produced from barley via an eco-friendly milling and dry enrichment process. The beta-glucans offer a convenient and tasty opportunity to enrich your products with fibres and make use of on-pack claims with nutritional and health benefits. These are contributable to the 20% fraction of beta-glucans, soluble fibres with a positive effect on cholesterol and heart health.

Beta-glucans are naturally present in cereals, like oats and barley. They are polysaccharides composed of glucose molecules, linked together with mixed β (1-4) and β (1-3) bonds. Orafti® β-Fit can be labelled as beta-glucan rich barley flour.
