Oats are a supergrain – they have all the goodness of other wholegrains plus extra benefits.
Oats are the only wholegrain recognised to actively lower cholesterol
Oats provide soluble fibre (called beta glucan) which acts like a sponge during digestion, soaking up and removing cholesterol from the body. This can help to lower the blood cholestrerol, so eating a diet containing oats, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and a healthy lifestyle, can help to maintain a healthy heart.
Oats are one of the most filling grains
The beneficial combination of soluble and insoluble fibre found in oats helps to fill you up and helps to keep you going.
