Why are oats considered a “superfood”?
They are a whole grain, a complex carbohydrate, provide protein, are low in sodium and are minimally processed. Oats contain all three parts of the edible grain – the bran, germ and endosperm – and retain the fibre, vitamins and minerals often removed when grains are refined. They are high in insoluble fibre, which passes through our digestive system without being absorbed. Oats also contain beta glucan, a soluble fibre which has been shown to lower cholesterol
