What is NICHI GLUCAN?
Although beta-glucans are found in a wide variety of foods, Nichi Glucan range of products are produced as an exo-polysaccharide secretion by different strains of Aureobasidium Pullulans, a black yeast.
It is a β-1,3-1,6-glucan-type glucan (BRMG) with a special molecular structure. It has the following characteristics.
Disclaimer: Nichi Glucan range of products are approved as a food additive/food supplement in Japan. They are produced as an exo-polysaccharide by Black yeast Aureobasidium Pullulans in GMP certified facility in Japan and sold in different brands based on the strain of produce, dosage etc. These products are not drug or cure to any illness and approval status vary between countries.

How Nichi Glucan is made?
First, we make a medium for cultivating black yeast. We use specially treated natural water for the medium.
Next, black yeast strain is added to the culture and wait for the black yeast to produce β-1,3-1,6-glucan around its own body as an exo-polysaccharide.
Once the glucan is produced, the product is heat sterilised and filled. From the time of cultivation to the time of filling, other micro organisms are controlled and only the black yeast is maintained.
What is beta-glucan produced by the black yeast fungus?
The beta-glucan produced by the black yeast fungus does not need to be extracted, as is the case with shiitake. It is produced efficiently by cultivating the black yeast fungus, so that product rich In Beta-Glucan is obtained.
