Aureobasidium Beta Glucan for Immunsystem Research made in Japan

Beta Glucan Information

What is Beta Glucan?

Beta Glucan from Black Yeast It is a type of dietary fiber and polysaccharide. Beta-glucan is present in the cell walls of yeast and filamentous fungi, as well as in mushrooms (reishi, button mushrooms, etc.). The described black yeast beta-glucan is obtained from the black yeast species Aureobasidium. (Latin name: Aureobasidium pullulans)

If black yeast is cultured under special conditions It produces a gel-like substance. which is rich in quality beta glucan Solution used for culture Aureobasidium (black yeast) has official food additive status (paragraph) in Announcement No. 120 of the Ministry of Health and Welfare of Japan (delete number 1) (currently Ministry of Health) Labor and Welfare) *On April 16, 1996 (This announcement was published in Royal Gazette issued by the Ministry of Finance of Japan)

About Beta glucan

Types of Beta glucan

Black Yeast


Bread Yeast



Black Yeast

Black yeast is a type of microorganism that exists in nature. Produce beta glucan outside of its own cells during the fermentation process. At Aureo, black yeast is grown under special controlled conditions. and our unique biotechnology Only change the heat level. Black yeast then produces beta-glucan. without going through a chemical process or any purification Black yeast has water-soluble properties. and easily dissolves in water Beta glucan in gel form Rich in minerals and vitamin C Therefore it is safe and gentle on the body.

Characteristics of beta-glucan from black yeast, Aureobasidium species.

Beta-glucan from black yeast in terms of important farming properties through specific technology And there is no need to pass a high-performance inspection… Glucan from black yeast requires a natural, unprocessed and highly safe dietary supplement.

Natural farming methods This ensures that the product is gentle on the body.

In the early 50s of the Showa era, a gel-like substance was accidentally discovered in raw sugar obtained from sugarcane during the production of soft drinks. Upon examination, it was found to be a dietary fiber produced by black yeast and a type of polysaccharide. After that, research into breeding methods took place. And we succeeded in creating “Cultivation of black yeast, Aureobasidium species,” which is 10 times richer in beta-glucan than button mushrooms, was considered a new issue at that time. and beta-glucan from black yeast, Aureobasidium species. It has been born since then. The health food supplement “Aureo Beta Glucan from Black Yeast” was developed from the desire to make beta glucan from the black yeast species Aureobasidium. This wonderful It is widely known throughout the world.

It looks like a gel. Gentle on the body and easy to drink.

When black yeast Aureobasidium It is cultivated under special conditions using specific biotechnology. Black yeast creates a gel-like substance, so Aureo Beta Glucan is very watery with gel being its main ingredient. This gel contains a large amount of β-1,3-1,6 glucan and is gentle. to the body There are no preservatives or preservatives of any kind. Both the elderly and children can drink with confidence. It also has high moisturizing properties. and is an excellent ingredient for making cosmetics


Structure of Beta glucan Aureobasidium species

Beta-glucan is a type of polysaccharide which is made up of many linked glucose molecules. smallest unit of sugar called monosaccharides or a single sugar molecule Two monosaccharides are called disaccharides. And monosaccharides connected to 10 or more are called polysaccharides. Monosaccharides are glucose and fructose, disaccharides are sucrose (commonly called ‘sugar’), and polysaccharides are glucans and dextrins.

Glucans are divided into two types based on how glucose is linked: alpha-glucan and beta-glucan. The structure of black yeast beta-glucan is unique. It consists of a trunk (main chain) with many branches (side chains). The structure of the trunk is ‘1,3’ and the structure of the branches is ‘1,6’. Therefore, it is called beta-1,3-1,6 glucan.
