BENEFITS

TIPS

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

  • Oats are a good source of a unique type of fibre called beta-glucan.
  • Oats contain high amounts of many vitamins and minerals, such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, B-vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium and zinc.
  • Banana contains high amounts of vitamin B6 and B12, as well as magnesium and potassium. It also contains some fibre and protein.

CAUTION

Increased risk of diabetes – From flavoured types of oatmeal that contain artificial ingredients and significant amounts of sugar.

Impaired digestion – Oatmeal contains Phytic acid. Phytates chelate make important nutrients unabsorbable by intestines. It mostly applies to calcium, magnesium, zinc and iron, however, other nutrients are affected in long term as well.

FOR PREPARING & COOKING

  • Different types of oats require slightly different cooking methods for making hot cereal or porridge or any other preparation.
  • For pancake make sure the consistency is not so runny.

FOR SELECTION & STORAGE

  • Buy small quantities of oats at one time since this grain has a slightly higher fat content than other grains and will go rancid more quickly. Also, in a packed container make sure there is no evidence of moisture.
  • If you purchase prepared oatmeal products, look at the ingredients to ensure that the product does not contain any salt, sugar or other additives.
