There is growing consumer awareness of the benefits of consuming prebiotics and the positive effect such consumption may have on the risk factors for many chronic diseases. Consumers are also linking these benefits to changes in the gut microbiome.

There is a growing demand therefore for prebiotic rich foods and for assistance in consumers understanding the effect of prebiotics.

To assist food manufacturers in Australia and New Zealand, The Healthy Grain company has commissioned a strategic literature review examining whether BARLEYmax™ barley prebiotics support digestive health or not.

On the basis of the positive conclusion of this SLR, The Healthy Grain company has formally notified FSANZ (Food Safety/Standards Australia and New Zealand) of this self-certified health claim.

This will facilitate Australian and New Zealand food manufacturers producing prebiotic rich foods and including on-pack statements to inform and educate consumers.
