What is Yeast Beta Glucan Powder?
Yeast beta-glucan powder exists in the cell wall of yeast and is well-known for the functions of immunity enhancing, anti-infection, anti-tumor and so on. As the No. 1 yeast extract manufacturer in the world and relying on its strong R&D capabilities, Angel Yeast developed yeast beta-glucan from baker's yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) twenty years ago, and now it is widely used in a variety of foods.
YEAST Beta Glucan powder is found in the cell walls of common baker’s yeast. Most people already consume it via natural sources such as wheat or oatmeal. It is used to maintain or
stimulate the effectiveness of the immune system. Moreover, it has a positive effect on cholesterol levels and research is being done to investigate the positive effects on blood

Beta-glucans made from yeast may help lower cholesterol. Studies have shown that they may slightly lower total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol. However, they do not seem to affect HDL ("good") cholesterol and triglycerides. Beta-glucans have been studied in people with certain types of cancer.
The yeast beta glucan powder found in oats may help keep cholesterol in check, according to a 2011 report.Looking at studies conducted over the previous 13 years, the report's authors determined that oat-derived beta-glucan may significantly reduce levels of total and LDL ("bad") cholesterol. The authors noted that, on average, daily oat consumption is associated with 5% and 7% reductions in total and LDL cholesterol levels, respectively.
A 2014 meta-analysis found similar results. The researchers focused on studies that included at least 3 grams (g) of beta-glucan daily and found it reduced total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, but did not impact HDL cholesterol levels or triglycerides.5
Research also suggests that yeast beta glucan powder may help manage diabetes by controlling blood sugar levels, lowering cholesterol, and keeping blood pressure in check.A 2014 literature analysis confirmed these findings but noted that beta-glucan alone was not enough to achieve normal blood sugar readings in patients with diabetes, and it should be used as an adjunct to standard treatment.
Preliminary research indicates that beta-glucan may activate a number of cells and proteins that fight cancer (such as T-cells and natural killer cells). What's more, tests on animals have shown that beta-glucan may inhibit the spread of cancer cells.However, a 2009 report cautions that there are "no good quality clinical trial data" for the effectiveness of beta-glucan in treating cancer.7
Currently, there is a lack of clinical trials supporting the claim that beta-glucan can "rev up" the immune system and stave off colds, flu, and other types of infection.
