The ‘take-home’ message:
If you see the FriendOatwell logo ® on the packaging of a product you can be assured that the product contains Oatwell®. FriendOatwell® represents the soluble fibre beta-glucan obtained from oats. Products which contain at least 1g of beta-glucan per portion are allowed to bear the following comment:
Oat beta-glucan lowers the cholesterol level in the blood. The lowering of the blood cholesterol level can reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. The positive effects can be achieved through the intake of 3g of oat beta-glucan per day.
