β-glucans are natural polysaccharide chains of glucose monomers
with the glucose-glucose bond in the β configuration rather than α. Fungal β-glucans have backbone bonds between the 1st and 3rd carbons, with side-branches connected to the 6th carbon.

β-glucans have been studied extensively and found to be biological regulators, influencing many layers of the immune system. The body recognises fungal β-glucan as non-self, which activates immune cell surface receptors prompting a biological response.
