Barley Mutant Lines Having Grain With Ultra-High Beta Glucan Content

A barley plant having grain with ultra-high beta-glucan content and total fiber.


•  A lower starch, but not empty endosperm line like other high beta-glucan lines
•  Could provide high beta-glucan flour that is used in various food products
•  Plants have normal looking morphology


•  Use as an critical parental line to significantly boost  beta-glucan content in food barley cultivars
•  Use as parental line to significantly boost total dietary fiber in food barley development
•  Directly use it as dietary fiber extraction source
