Quote from Study:  These data imply that acute reduction of the glycemic response and hunger ratings in overweight women requires consumption of at least 2 g and 1 g of ß-glucan per meal, respectively.

Study:  Consumption of Whole Grains Containing ß-Glucan Altered Short-Term Satiety and Glycemic Response in Overweight Women
Authors:  Hyunsook K, Behall K, Conway J
Publication:  Cereal Foods World. 2005; 50: 276-277
Summary:  19 Adults were fed 4 different isocaloric in a randomized, crossover study: 75g glucose, wheat, 1g ß-glucan or 2g ß-glucans from barley. The women in both ß-glucan groups saw improvements in subjective hunger scores. There was also significant improvements in peak glucose response and area under the curve for the women in the 2g ß-glucan group.

Quote from Study:  Oat ß-glucan increases postprandial cholecystokinin levels, decreases insulin response and extends subjective satiety in overweight subjects.

Study:  Oat ß-glucan increases postprandial cholecystokinin levels, decreases insulin response and extends subjective satiety in overweight subjects.
Authors:  Beck EJ, Tosh SM, Batterham MJ, Tapsell LC, Huang XF.
Publication:  Mol Nutr Food Res. 2009 Oct;53(10):1343-51.
Summary:  Oat ß-glucans of varying amounts and from 2 separate manufacturing processes were added to 5 different breakfasts and fed to 14 people. The ß-glucan decreased insulin secretion and increase cholecystokinin in a dose responsive manner. A 95 calorie reduction at subsequent meals was seen when ß-glucan concentrations were higher than 5g.

Quote from Study:  βGB (ß-glucan bread) determined a significant higher reduction of hunger and increase of fullness and satiety than CB (control bread).

Study:  β-Glucan-enriched bread reduces energy intake and modifies plasma ghrelin and peptide YY concentrations in the short term
Authors:  Paola Vitaglione, Roberta Barone Lumaga, Antonio Stanzione, Luca Scalfi, Vincenzo Fogliano
Publication:  Appetite.  Dec 2009; 53(3):  338-344.
Summary:  14 Adults were assigned to receive a breakfast with either a 3% ß-glucan enriched bread (BGB) or a control bread (CB).  The BGB group saw a 19% decrease in energy intake a the subsequent lunch meal compared to CB group. The BGB group also saw a 23% lower plasma ghrelin, 16% higher PPY response and a blunted glucose response.

Quote from Study:  The average energy intake (-13%, p<0.05) and body weight gain was lower with increasing β-glucan over 6 wk with acute suppression of energy intake over 4 h.

Study:  Diet high in oat β-glucan activates the gut-hypothalamic (PYY₃₋₃₆-NPY) axis and increases satiety in diet-induced obesity in mice.
Authors:  Huang XF, Yu Y, Beck EJ, South T, Li Y, Batterham MJ, Tapsell LC, Chen J.
Publication:  Mol Nutr Food Res. 2011 Jul;55(7):1118-21.
Summary:  Diet induced obesity mice were split into 2 groups and either fed standard chow or varying levels of ß-glucans for 6 weeks.  The ß-glucan group saw lower energy intake and weight gain as ß-glucan levels were increased. The group receiving the highest amount of ß-glucan saw significant reductions in plasm PYY and suppression of neuropeptide Y mRNA expression.
