Welcome to Barley+ Healthcare Professional web pages. Barley+ is rich in 3 fibre types: 1) resistant starch; 2) soluble fibre; and 3) insoluble fibre. See the infographic below for a broad overview of the functions of these fibre types in the gastrointestinal tract.

for better gut health

is rich in BARLEYmax™, the one non-genetically modified whole grain unique for its natural mix of three high quality fibre types, including prebiotic dietary fibre.

X

Soluble fibre captures nutrients in the viscous
GI materials

This impedes enzyme access, reducing
carbohydrate , & sugar digestion & absorption rate

X

Beta-glucan soluble fibre increases
cholesterol-bound bile acid excretion, reducing circulating cholesterol levels

X

Digestion produces:

  • Resistant starch, soluble
    fibre (incl. beta-glucan) & insoluble fibre
  • Carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, minerals & antioxidants

X

Resistant starch, fructans & FOS have
prebiotic effects

Bacteria ferment these in the large bowel, producing short chain fatty acids , which are important to human health

Insoluble fibre :

  • Increases fecal mass
    & colonic transit rate
  • Improves regular bowel
    function & evacuation
