Barley Beta-Glucans – A New Health Management Tool

Barley beta-glucans are a kind of water-soluble dietary fiber that are found in especially large quantities in barley, even more than in other grains. Otsuka’s “OMUGI SEIKATSU” takes advantage of the action of barley beta-glucans to encourage people to adopt “new health management habits from first thing in the morning.”

  1. 1OMUGI = “barley” in Japanese
