The physicochemical features of beta-glucan vary depending on the properties of primary structure, degree of branching, linkage type and molecular weight.
Some studies suggest that cereal-derived Beta-glucan have immunomodulatory properties. Yeast and medicinal mushroom-derived Beta-glucans have been found to contain nutrient which have ability to modulate the immune system.
Beta-glucans are further used in various cosmetic products and nutraceutical, as texturing agents, and as soluble fiber supplements, but can get complex in the process of brewing
