Oats are “power food” when it comes to nutritional content. More and more people are discovering the unique properties of oats, not only in this country, but also in the rest of the world.
Oats have a very favorable fatty acid composition with a high content of unsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which has a positive effect on the fats in our blood. Oats are also one of the grains that contain the most antioxidants.
These neutralize free radicals in the body, these are atoms or molecules that can damage cells and genetic material. Oats contain as much as 8 -10 percent dietary fiber! Among other things, oats contain a type of fiber called beta-glucans. The beta-glucans can reduce blood cholesterol levels, and can therefore help prevent cardiovascular disease. Beta-glucans also contribute to a slower rise in blood sugar.
Oats are rich in iron. In order for the iron in the oats to be absorbed as best as possible in the body, it is smart to serve foods that contain vitamin C as well, such as juice, fruit and berries.
