Several independent studies have shown that products containing oat β-glucan have a cholesterol-lowering effect. The EU has approved a health claim related to cholesterol-lowering in 2011. To facilitate the 3 g daily intake of β-glucan recommended by the claim, food products high in β-glucan should be developed. This study aimed to improve understanding how the modification of an oat bran fraction containing 30% β-glucan (OBC) affects its use as an extrusion ingredient in oat based extrudates.
