β-GLUCAN . Food Ingredient Sourced From Yeast, Shanghai Genon Biotech Co.,Ltd

Examples of various β-glucan glycosidic linkages.

beta 1, 3- glucan and beta 1, 6- glucan.

Food Ingredient Sourced From Yeast

The shiitake mushroom contains beta-glucans.

β-Glucans (beta-glucans) are polysaccharides of D-glucose monomers linked by β-glycosidic bonds. β-glucans are a diverse group of molecules that can vary with respect to molecular mass, solubility, viscosity, and three-dimensional configuration. They occur most commonly as cellulose in plants, the bran of cereal grains, the cell wall of baker’s yeast, certain fungimushrooms and bacteria. Some forms of beta glucans are useful in human nutrition as texturing agents and as soluble fibersupplements, but can be problematic in the process of brewing.

Oat is a rich source of the water-soluble fibre (1,3/1,4) β-glucan, and its effects on health have been extensively studied the last 30 years. Oat β-glucans are the only dietary fiber currently recognized by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to be able to reduce a disease risk. Oat β-glucans can be highly concentrated in different types of oat brans.

Barley has more beta glucan fiber than any other grain” claims a report on DiabetesHealth website ; 11 sources are listed.

Yeast and medicinal mushroom derived β-glucans are notable for their ability to modulate the immune system. One study has shown that insoluble (1,3/1,6) β-glucan, has greater biological activity than that of its soluble (1,3/1,4) β-glucan counterparts.The differences between β-glucan linkages and chemical structure are significant in regards to solubility, mode of action, and overall biological activity.

I would like to thank amy of Shanghai Genon Biotech Co.,Ltd for motivating me to add this article

‘Gecono’ β-Glucan (GNP80), derived from fresh food grade brewer’s yeast or baker’s yeast, is akind of ‘new resource food material’ developed by unique innovative biotechnologies. Its maincomponent is yeast sourced immunocompetent polysaccharide which has two isomers structured asbeta 1, 3- glucan and beta 1, 6- glucan. The former one which can greatly enhance human immunity isproved to have the anti-tumor, anti-radiation, anti-aging and free radical scavenging activities. It is animportant biological effect response agent.
Appearance: White or light yellow powder.

●A good Immune activator.
●A powerful free radical scavenger.
●Activate macrophages or neutrophil leukocyte to scavenge cell debris caused by radiation.
●Help the macrophages recognize and destroy the mutated cells.
●Help speed up the recovery of damaged tissue to produce cell factor( IL-1) .
●Enhance the activities of the other substances like antibiotics, antifungal and antiparasitic.
●Reduce the low-density lipoprotein( LDL) level and increase the high-density lipoprotein(HDL)
level in the blood to reduce the hyperlipidemiaoccurrence.
●Health food supplements.
●Capsules and tablet health food.
●Beverages & functional oral liquid.
●Pharmaceutical & cosmetic ingredients.
●Other anti-aging,anti-radiation functional foods.
Package:25kg / bag, double-ply composite bag.
Shelf Life:24 months
Storage:Please store in dry condition and avoid explosion in open air. No shipment with noxious

Dear Sirs,

We got your info on line, and we are professional manufacturer of Beta 1,3,1,6-D-Glucan from 100% natural Brewer’s Yeast in Shanghai, China.

Beta-glucan can strengthen the immune system and in turn fend off cold,flu and even cancer. Additonally,beta-glucan increases the body`s denfense against the harmful effects of stress.

In additon to being available in food, beta-glucan supplements can help with following health problems:

·allergies                 ·asthma      ·cancer

·Crohn`s disease    ·chronic fatigue syndrome

·diabetes                 ·fibromyalgia

·high cholesterol     ·reheumatoid arthritis

·ulcerative colitis

Beta glucan 70%min / 80%min, the price is very competitive now.

We have 4 factories in China to produce brewer yeast series products: yeast powder, yeast extract (seasoning, fermentation), yeast cellwall, selenium yeast, etc.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested.

Best regards


Micro protein: Yeast extract, Beta-glucan, Yeast cell wall, Organic selenium and Brewer yeast etc.

Animal protein: Hemoglobin Plasma and Nutritional Peptide etc.

With Fine Quality and Competitive Price.
