Story of Oats BIOBG


What is Oat Bran?

Oat bran is the outer layer of oat grain which concentrated with beta-glucan, a type of soluble fiber. It contains 50% more soluble fiber beta-glucan than other parts of the grain.

What is Beta-Glucan?

It is a type of water soluble fiber, known as (1,3)-(1,4)-beta-d-glucose. It is found and concentrated in the cell walls of the grains, particularly in oats. Not every beta-glucan is the same, where they can be distinguished through the variation in molecular weight, solubility, and viscosity.

Researches has proven that the effect of oat beta-glucan on LDL cholesterol is significantly related to its viscosity which in turn determined by its molecular weight and solubility. Furthermore, high molecular weight is physiologically active and is able to build viscous solution.

Comparison of oats, oat bran and oat bran powder

Oats BIOBG oat bran powder contains more beta-glucan than in raw oat grain and oat bran itself. In order to ensure its natural form is preserved, Oats BIOBG is being produced through proprietary processing method. It is concentrated at 22% of beta-glucan and is not chemically processed or modified.

Clinically Proven Cholesterol Lowering Effect

Consume at least 2 servings of oat beta-glucan per day for 4 weeks demonstrated a 5.5% average decrease in LDL-cholesterol level. This is beneficial for human since 1% reduction in LDL-cholesterol reduces CVD risk by 2%.

Consumption of a minimum 3g high molecular weight oat beta-glucan per day can reduce cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk up to 12% (Wolever et al., 2010)
*This study shows that the reduction in LDL & Total Cholesterol is dose-responsive. The more beta-glucan is consumed daily, the more LDL & Total Cholesterol will be reduced.

Meta-regression studies, from the model including both dose and duration estimates of the effect of 3,4 and 5g/day of aot beta-glucan taken for 5 weeks (*95% confidence interval, p<0.05) Higgins, J.P.T. and Thompson, S.G. (2002), Whitehead, A. (2008).



Consumption of 3g or more high molecular weight oat beta-glucan per day can further reduce total cholesterol & LDL-cholesterol without having any effect on HDL-cholesterol.

High Source of Dietary Fiber

Oats BIOBG is your great source of both soluble and insoluble fiber.
Oat BIOBGTM 7g(1 scoop) 14g(2 scoops) 100g
Soluble fiber (g) 1.5 3 22
Insoluble fiber (g) 1.6 3.2 22
Total dietary fiber (g) 3.1 6.3 44

How much is enough?

2 scoops (14g) of Oats BIOBG per day will provide 3g of beta-glucan, which is equivalent to 3 servings of oatmeal daily.

Measurements of Your Total Cholesterol Level

Test Ideal Borderline High
Total Cholesterol < 5.2 mmol/L 5.2-6.2 mmol/L > 6.2 mmol/L

Health tips:

  • Take 2 scoops of Oats BIOBG every day. 1 scoopful before breakfast and 1 scoopful before lunch/dinner
  • If your cholesterol level is very high (>6.0 mmol/L), take 3 scoops (4.62 g of beta-glucan) every day. 1 scoopful 30 minutes before every meal.
