Oats are a whole grain food, known scientifically as Avena sativa. Oat groats, the most intact and whole form of oats, take a long time to cook. For this reason, most people prefer rolled/instant (quick) or crushed or steel-cut oats. Rolled or instant oats are the most highly processed variety and takes the shortest time to cook. They can also be eaten raw.
Oats are commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal; oatmeal is often referred to as porridge, which is made by boiling oats in water or milk, or add to regular smoothies. They are also often included in muffins, granola bars, cookies and other baked goods because of their well-balanced nutrient composition.
Symbol Nutrition’s organic small rolled oats are the perfect base for all of your beautiful breakfast creations. They're 100% organic, with nothing added whatsoever, so that you can get that extra serving of fibre naturally.
Oats are a good source of carbohydrates and fiber, including the powerful fiber beta-glucan. a type of soluble fiber. Beta-glucan partially dissolves in water and forms a thick, gel-like solution in the gut.
It is believed that the health benefits of beta-glucan fiber include:
- Reduced LDL and total cholesterol levels
- Reduced blood sugar and insulin response
- Increased feeling of fullness
- Increased growth of good bacteria in the digestive tract
Oats also contain more protein and fat than most grains. Oats are loaded with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidant plant compounds.
Half a cup (78 grams) of dry oats contains:
- Manganese:191% of the RDI
- Phosphorus:41% of the RDI
- Magnesium:34% of the RDI
- Copper:24% of the RDI
- Iron:20% of the RDI
- Zinc:20% of the RDI
- Folate:11% of the RDI
- Vitamin B1 (thiamin):39% of the RDI
- Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid):10% of the RDI
- Smaller amounts of calcium, potassium, vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin B3 (niacin)
This is coming with 51 grams of carbs, 13 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat and 8 grams of fiber, but only 303 calories. This means that oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat.
