Safglucan® purified yeast fraction concentrated in 1.3/1.6 beta-glucans


β-Glucans are a class of polysaccharides consisting of D-glucose units that are polymerized primarily via the β-1,3 glycosidic bonds, in addition to the β-1,4 and/or β-1,6 bonds. They are present in various food products such as cereals, mushrooms, and seaweeds and are known for their numerous effects on the human body, depending on their structures, which are diverse. The major physicochemical properties of β-glucans include their antioxidant property, which is responsible for the scavenging of reactive oxygen species, and their role as dietary fiber for preventing the absorption of cholesterol, for promoting egestion, and for producing short-chain fatty acids in the intestine. Dietary β-glucans also support the immune system through their structural as indigestible carbohydrates helping to activate cells of the mucosal immune system via β-glucan receptors, such as dectin-1.


Safglucan® is one of the most promising solution to maintain animal performance & wellbeing in many species, including pets, cattle, swine, poultry, and farmed fish.

Composition and mode of action of Safglucan®

Phileo dash

Phileo’s innovative nutritional solution Safglucan® is composed of a purified fraction with a minimum of 50% of 1.3/1.6 beta-glucans extracted from a primary grown probiotic yeast strain Saccharomyces cerevisiae in a controlled process. Beta-glucans can be extracted from several natural sources, such as yeasts, algae, cereals, and fungi. Safglucan® has been analyzed in our laboratories to determine the length and the frequency of 1.3/1.6 beta-glucans ratio branching and its physicochemical properties.



Phileo’s selection of Safglucan® is based on its mode of action on in vitro cell models and the results of animal trials to confirm its benefits.
