Beta Glucan

Beta glucan is a type of polysaccharide found in the cell walls of certain fungi, including molds. It is an invisible substance and can be present in the air, particularly in environments with mold growth. Beta glucan is considered an allergen and can trigger allergic reactions or respiratory symptoms in susceptible individuals. Exposure to beta glucan has been associated with respiratory conditions such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.
