Bioactivity of a snack-bar, chocolate-drink and yogurt fortified with brewers' spent grain (BSG) phenolic extracts (P2 or B2) or protein hydrolysates (barley protein hydrolysate (BPH), BPH<3 kDa, BPH<5 kDa, BPH>5 kDa) was measured following gastrointestinal in vitro digestion. Concentrations of 0.5 and 0.1% (v/v) digestates were chosen for addition to Caco-2 and Jurkat T cells, respectively. Yogurt and B2 digestate protected against H2O2-induced DNA damage in Caco-2 cells (p<0.05), by the comet assay. Snack-bar digestates possessed significant (p<0.05) immunomodulatory effects, measured by ELISA in concanavalin-A stimulated Jurkat T cells. Addition of BPH enhanced (p<0.05) the IFN-gamma reducing capacity of the snack-bar while addition of BPH<3 and <5 kDa reduced IL-2 production to a greater extent than unfortified yogurt (p<0.05). Selected BSG components can enhance the antioxidant and
