Key Market Trends

Cereal has highest content of β-d-glucan

Cereal β-glucan from oat, barley, wheat, and rye induce a variety of physiological effects that positively impact the consumer’s health. The highest content of β-d-glucan was observed in barley and oat grains. Oats contain a form of soluble fiber, called oat β-glucan, which is particularly concentrated in the outer layers of the grain. This fiber is known for its cholesterol-lowering and hypoglycemic properties, as well as its use in various cosmetic applications and also used for blood glucose reduction. Barley contains the highest level, of up to 11 %, β-glucan among all the cereals. In many Western countries, barley is mainly used for animal feed and malting. However, there is renewed interest in barley as human food, due to its health benefits, including its potential to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by lowering cholesterol and improving glucose tolerance.

Europe accounts for the largest share of global soluble β-glucan

The market recorded stable growth in the North American and European markets, with Europe holding the maximum market share. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness huge growth during the forecast period. In May 2011, the EFSA Panel noted that “the “high intake” scenario for ‘yeast β-glucan’ is grossly similar to the background intake of β-glucan from other dietary sources”. Trends that are driving the market growth, include expansion and product enhancement strategies by various players. The food industry is constantly witnessing innovations in the healthy-food category in order to meet the rising demand for natural additives. There is also an advanced nutraceuticals market that has many product offerings with β-glucan as a primary ingredient. Sweden and Norway are the other main countries that have seen high investment in specialty food ingredients by big global manufacturers, because of their ideal climate for growing oats.
