REVIEW: Oat and Rye β-Glucan: Properties and Function
ABSTRACT Over the years, the β-glucan of oats and barley has been the subject of study either because of the importance of the cholesterol-lowering potential to health claims (FDA 1997, 2005) or, in
Extraction of β-Glucan from Oats for Soluble Dietary Fiber Quality Analysis
ABSTRACT Extraction protocols for β-glucan from oat flour were tested to determine optimal conditions for β-glucan quality testing, which included extractability and molecular weight. We found mass
Determination of Cytolytic Malt Modification – Part I: Influence of Variety Characteristics
Abstract The malt criteria of viscosity and β-glucan are used as an integral part of routine laboratory control measures to classify the cytolytic malt modification level and to ensure good
Cereal β-glucans
TLDR
This chapter will focus on recent advances in cereal β -glucan research, and discusses the range of innovative developments in methods for producing β - glucan-enriched ingredients and their potential application in many food products.
Brewing with up to 40% unmalted oats (Avena sativa) and sorghum (Sorghum bicolor): a review
TLDR
The brewing-relevant characteristics of unmalted oat and sorghum grain are described, the role and properties of endogenous/exogenous enzymes during mashing are investigated, and the effectiveness/limitations of endogenous enzymes as well as the benefits of the application of exogenous enzymes are examined.
Comparison of beer quality attributes between beers brewed with 100% barley malt and 100% barley raw material.
TLDR
It was shown that by brewing beer with 100% barley and an appropriate addition of exogenous Ondea Pro enzymes it was possible to efficiently brew beer of a satisfactory quality.
Cell wall polysaccharides hydrolysis of malting barley (Hordeum vulgare L.): a review
Revue bibliographique : l’hydrolyse des polysaccharides des parois cellulaires de l’orge brassicole (Hordeum vulgare L.). La qualite brassicole decoule des differentes etapes du processus de maltage.
Converting oats to high-fibre products for use in functional foods.
TLDR
This chapter focuses on the conversion of oats to high-fiber products for use in functional foods, and discusses some selective high-value, functional high- fiber oat products that can be useful for those populations seeking better health and longevity.

FIELD FUNGI AND β-GLUCAN SOLUBILASE IN BARLEY KERNELS*
TLDR
It has been concluded that the common field fungi associated with the hull and seed cot of barley may be the source of β-glucan solubilase, which is generated by microflora on the barley grain.
SUBSTRATE SPECIFICITY AND NATURE OF ACTION OF BARLEY β‐GLUCAN SOLUBILASE*
Barley β/glucan solubilase was shown to be active, to differing extends, towards hot water (65°C) soluble β-glucan, CM-cellulose and cellodextrins (DP 2–8). However, the enzyme did not affect the
A ROLE FOR CARBOXYPEPTIDASE IN THE SOLUBILIZATION OF BARLEY β-GLUCAN
An enzyme is described which catalyzes the release of soluble β-glucan from insoluble barley endosperm cell walls. This enzyme increases in activity throughout malting. It has been partially purified
THE DEVELOPMENT OF β‐GLUCAN SOLUBILASE DURING BARLEY GERMINATION
β-Glucan solubilase in either germinating barley or in endosperm slices treated with gibberellic acid is synthesized before endo-β-glucanase, α-amylase and protease. In common with these enzymes,
CELLULASES OF PLANT AND MICROBIAL ORIGIN IN GERMINATING BARLEY
TLDR
The results emphasize the importance of eliminating microbial growth prior to studies of polysaccharide hydrolases which develop during the germination of barley and which are assumed to be of plant origin.
β-GLUCAN AND β-GLUCAN SOLUBILASE IN MALTING AND MASHING
During malting the water-insoluble β-glucan of barley is diminished whilst water-soluble gum is little decreased. The amount of β-glucan surviving into malt depends on variety but barleys rich in
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN β‐GLUCAN SOLUBILASE, BARLEY AUTOLYSIS AND MALTING POTENTIAL
There is a correlation between the autolysis of barleys and their β-glucan solubilase activities. There is no correlation between autolysis and nitrogen content, β-glucan level, Milling Energy or
Glucagel, a gelling β-glucan from barley
A new form of the mixed-linked (1→3),(1→4)-β-D-giuca has been obtained from barley grains using a new extraction and purification process that involves two key steps. A hot-water extraction of the
