DSM Nutritional Products has acquired the OatWell brand of beta-glucan ingredients from CreaNutrition, the subsidiary of Swedish Oat Fiber (SOF). SOF will produce the OatWell products at its factory in Bua, Sweden.

DSM says oat beta-glucan has clinically proven health benefits in the areas of cholesterol reduction, blood glucose control and general gastrointestinal health. It cites the European Food Safety Authority and the US food and Drug Administration among the health authorities that have approved health claims for the beta-glucans for cholesterol reduction and the associated reduced risk of developing heart disease.

"OatWell beta-glucan is a great fit with our existing health and nutrition ingredient portfolio and complements our extensive heart health solutions by giving our customers more choice and flexibility in creating new food, beverage and dietary supplement formulations for their brands,"​ says DSM Nutritional Products' vice president of marketing Will Black.
