Now there’s another great heart-healthy reason to drink juice. Bolthouse Farms’® new Heart Healthy Pear Merlot fruit juice is made with Barlív™ barley betafiber, a natural soluble fiber clinically proven to reduce cholesterol.
"We are excited to offer this great tasting new product to consumers who are managing their heart health," said Clay Gruenstein, brand manager, Bolthouse Farms®. "Many heart-healthy ingredients were evaluated, and Barlív™ barley betafiber was chosen because of its great fit with our product portfolio – it is 100-percent natural, clinically proven to work and it’s completely ‘invisible’ in our products."
Barlív™ barley betafiber is a natural soluble fiber developed by Cargill that is made from barley and is now backed by an FDA health claim*. In addition, clinical studies with Barlív™ barley betafiber have shown that consuming just 3 grams per day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol by as much as 9.5 percent without reducing HDL (good) cholesterol. Each serving of Bolthouse Farms’ Heart Healthy Pear Merlot fruit juice blend contains 0.75 grams of Barlív™ barley betafiber.

*FDA’s Authorized Health Claim: Diets low in saturated fat and cholesterol that include 3 grams per day of beta-glucan soluble fiber from barley betafiber may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving of Bolthouse Farms Heart Healthy Pear Merlot juice blend provides 0.75 grams of this soluble fiber.
