DSM Nutritional Products (booth 2439) will feature OatWell®, the market-leading ingredient brand of oat beta-glucan, at the Institute of Food Technologist (IFT) Annual Meeting & Food Expo July 13 to 16 in Chicago. OatWell is sold around the world to food and beverage manufacturers and dietary supplement producers who wish to add the health benefits of oat beta-glucan to their products.
OatWell is the market-leading ingredient brand of oat beta-glucan. Oat beta-glucan has clinically proven health benefits in the areas of healthy cholesterol and blood glucose levels and gastrointestinal health.
OatWell is unique in that the careful milling and sieving process of oats protects the three key parameters needed for oat beta-glucan clinical efficacy: concentration, solubility and molecular weight – all necessary to ensure adequate viscosity in the gut. Oat beta-glucan works by forming a viscous gel within the lower intestine. An all-natural soluble fiber harvested from pure Swedish oats, OatWell oat beta-glucan contributes to a clean label for finished products. OatWell has a neutral taste profile, long shelf life, and can be used in a number of applications, including nutritional bars, cereal, pasta, smoothies, RTD beverages, dairy products, and powdered mixes.
On display at IFT 2013, DSM will sample OATally Healthy bars, a berry cereal bar with a vanilla yogurt coated bottom. The bar contains 0.75 gram of beta-glucan. Also, on display will be European Supermarket Migros store brand, Blévita crackers containing 1 gram of beta-glucan per serving.
