DSM’s OatWell® oat beta-glucan is an oat bran powder that is high in oat beta-glucan. OatWell® is produced by milling oat kernels and contains the natural combination of oat beta-glucan, insoluble fibers and large quantities of protein and unsaturated fatty acids.
EFSA has verified the link between reduced blood cholesterol levels and consumption of oat beta-glucan. The European Commission has authorized Article 14 health claims for cholesterol reduction and the associated reduced risk of developing heart disease. The proven efficacy of OatWell® formed the basis of the Article 14 approval.
