Immunomodulatory Activities of Oat b-Glucan
In vitro and In vivo.
The influence of b-glucan
on immune responses in broiler chicks.
Diet high in oat b-glucan activates the guthypothalamic (PYY3-36-NPY) axis and increases satiety in diet-induced obesity in mice.

Effects of single or combined dietary supplementation of b-glucan
and kefir on growth performance, blood characteristics and meat quality in broilers.
b-glucans are responsible for the poor nutritive value of these cereals (Annison and Choct, 1991) and the addition of b-glucan degrading enzymes improves the nutritive value of cereals (Wang et al.
Oat and barley have the highest concentrations of b-glucan, whereas low b-glucan content was known in wheat grains (Genc et al.
