Health claims that matter
Almost everyone you meet—from the cashier at the supermarket to your fellow train commuter—has something to say about eating and living “healthier” so they can age gracefully and live longer. At what point, however, does healthy eating truly help reduce the risk factors of disease or support recovery?
Part of our extensive portfolio of proven nutritional ingredients, SUSTAGRAIN® wholegrain barley is the highest quality natural wholegrain fibre currently on the market. Made from waxy hull-less barley, SUSTAGRAIN® delivers 30% total fibre (three times more than oats) of which almost half comes from soluble beta-glucans (12%).
Incorporating SUSTAGRAIN® into your product can help you apply the EFSA substantiated health claim; “barley beta-glucan has been shown to lower/reduce blood cholesterol. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease”, helping provide health conscious consumers to maintain a healthy heart.
Our experts in Ingredion Idea Labs innovation centresTM can help you formulate with SUSTAGRAIN® to achieve the health claim you need in your application helping you follow the conditions of use set out by the authorising legislation to ensure you have sufficient wholegrain barley SUSTAGRAIN® in your recipes to make a health claim.
