TIPS

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 oats products such as oatmeal, look at the ingredients to ensure that the product does not contain any salt, sugar or other additives.

FOR PREPARING & COOKING

  • Different types of oats require slightly different cooking methods, be it hot cereal, porridge, or any other preparation.
  • As a rule of thumb, add 3 parts of water to 1 part of oats and let it simmer on medium heat.

NUTRITIONAL VALUES

  • The carbs in oats are mostly made up of starch and fiber. Oats are a great source of a unique type of fiber called beta-glucan, which is associated with a range of health benefits.
  • Oats contain high amounts of many vitamins and minerals, including manganese, phosphorus, copper, B-vitamins, iron, selenium, magnesium, and zinc.
  • Oats are the only dietary source of powerful antioxidants called avenanthramide. They also contain ferulic acid and phytic acid.

CAUTION

  • Although oatmeal may seem like a harmless and beneficial product, it is not as safe as commonly perceived. Therefore, you must regulate your intake.
  • Increased risk of diabetes – This may arise owing to flavored types of oatmeal that contain artificial ingredients and significant amounts of sugar.
  • Intestinal blockage – Caused by eating too much oatmeal that is undercooked or raw, leading to intestinal blockage and severe constipation.
  • Impaired digestion – Oatmeal contains Phytic acid. Phytates chelate render important nutrients un-absorbable. This mostly applies to calcium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. However, it affects other nutrients as well, in the long run.
