Barley Balance naturally concentrated barley beta-glucan is claimed to lower cholesterol and reduce blood sugar, and can promote weight loss with proper diet changes.

Barley Balance is made from high-quality non-GMO waxy, hull-less barley grains designed to yield high levels of β-glucans. It is a rich source of concentrated natural β-glucan soluble fibre.

The established standards to qualify for the US FDA Soluble Fibre Health Claim for cardiovascular disease reduction by barley beta-glucan are 0.75g β-glucan (3.0 g Barley Balance) per serve and 3.0g β-glucan (12.0 g Barley Balance) per day. Barley beta-glucan health claims are in place in the US, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and the EU.

Barley Balance is made entirely by a dry milling separation process as compared to other cereal glucans which are chemically processed to remove lipids. It can be labelled as fibre.

In addition to delivering health benefits, Barley Balance is a strong hydrocolloid that helps increase the viscosity, texture and water-binding capacity of food while also contributing the mouth feel of fat.

Suggested applications include: bakery products; beverages; functional foods and dietary supplements; cereal foods; dairy foods.
