Oats – the naked truth
HIGH OCTANE ENERGY FOR SUSTAINABLE HEALTH
Oats are a power house of various essential nutrients such as dietary fibre, manganese, magnesium, complex carbohydrates, B vitamins, and minerals such as phosphorous, iron, and calcium. A highly nutritious ‘whole food’, oatmeal contains soluble fibre, which means it moves more slowly through your digestive system, allowing you to feel satisfied longer. Oats also contain selenium and vitamin E which enhances the body’s immune system response to bacterial infections, making it a perfect food for preventing colds and flu. The zinc present in oats not only aids in metabolism, but also helps in healing wounds and regenerating cells.
Not all oats are created equal
Did you know that oats themselves are a naturally gluten free food? The reason that folks following a gluten free diet need to ensure their oats are guaranteed pure is due to the possibility of cross-contamination with wheat, barley, rye, triticale, kamut, spelt, or other grains that are closely related to wheat. How can you be sure that your oats are pure and uncontaminated?
Here’s what you need to know:
- The field has not been used to grow a wheat-related crop for at least 3 years
- The seed and crop has been inspected
- Harvested seed is examined for foreign grains
- Cleaned seed is analyzed for purity
- Oats are processed at a dedicated gluten free facility
- Processed oats have undergone stringent laboratory testing to be certified ‘pure’
