MINNEAPOLIS — Health Canada has cleared the way for Canadian food formulators to begin using Cargill’s Barliv barley betafiber as a source of cholesterol-lowering fiber, according to Minneapolis-based Cargill. Barliv, a soluble fiber extract derived from whole grain barley, is virtually invisible when added to foods and beverages, according to Cargill.

Cargill submitted data to Health Canada that supported Barliv’s efficacy in lowering blood cholesterol. Health Canada accepted the data.
