Cereal and fungal products have been used for centuries for medicinal and cosmetic purposes; however, the specific role of beta-glucan was not explored until the 20th century. Beta-glucans were first discovered in lichens, and shortly thereafter in barley. Beta-glucans form a natural component of the cell walls of bacteria, fungi, yeast, and cereals such as oat and barley. Each type of beta-glucan comprises a different molecular backbone, level of branching, and molecular weight which affects its solubility and physiological impact. Beta-glucan, offered by the Czech company, is a remarkable natural complex polysaccharide, capable of supporting the organism's defensive response against bacterial and parasitic diseases (substantial equivalent to market leader). The Czech company is on the market over 10 years and it supplies components to various producers of food supplements and pharmaceuticals. Their current plan is to expand around Europe with a high-quality beta-glucan. Currently, their business develops well in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia. Alongside deliveries the company is ready to provide technical and marketing support regarding implementation of the beta-glucan into production and product launch with the novel component. In addition, even joint research of products for specific target groups and markets is possible. Therefore, the company seeks producers of food supplements and healthy food and pharmaceuticals interested in a high quality component and implement it into current or novel products on the basis of subcontracting.
