How to make a health claim with beta glucans

To reach the EU approved heart and cholesterol health claims you need to follow a simple rule in your recipes: add 1 gram of beta glucan per serving.

Fazer Aurora Oat Beta Glucan’s high concentration of beta glucan means less oat ingredient is required in the end product to support health claims.

  • Aurora Oat Beta Glucan 20 contains 1 gram of beta glucan per 5 grams
  • Aurora Oat Beta Glucan 10 contains 1 gram of beta glucan per 10 grams
