Though Germany is largest barley producer after Russia, key players operating in Germany are focusing on other sources, specifically on yeast, algae for beta-glucan extraction, as the major part of barley produced in Germany is used for malting or animal feeding. In Germany, cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death, accounting for 40% of all deaths followed by cancer, which accounts for 25% of all death cases.
