DSM Acquires Swedish Oat Fiber


Swedish Oat Fiber is a leading producer of oat ingredients rich in beta-glucans.

DSM Nutritional Products (Parsippany, NJ) has acquired Swedish Oat Fiber (Bua, Sweden), a specialty producer of oat bran rich in beta-glucans. Swedish Oat Fiber will still produce its ingredients, but DSM will assume sales and marketing activities.

Beta-glucans have a favorable reputation among various health agencies, with EFSA and FDA offering their own health claims for beta-glucans. Available from multiple food sources, beta-glucans have been associated with potential for cholesterol reduction, blood glucose control, and gastrointestinal health.

Swedish Oat Fiber distributes its OatWell brand ingredients throughout North America under Oat Ingredients LLC (Boulder, CO).
