Oats

Oats, like barley, contain a special fiber called beta-glucan, which has been shown to effectively reduce cholesterol levels. Whole grains such as oats boost antioxidant intake and help regulate blood sugar levels, a great mechanism to help prevent type 2 diabetes. Did you know that oats are used as a natural anti-itch solution? That's why children with chicken pox often take "oatmeal baths" to relieve the burning sensation! Rolled oats are steamed and flattened. You can add these into your NutriBlast uncooked and without milling if you'd like. They can also be added cooked for a thicker consistency. If using steel cut or Irish oatmeal, it is recommended to mill them into a flour before adding to the cup.

Selection Process

Choose gluten-free rolled oats if available. Bob's Red Mill carries a gluten-free version. Avoid instant oats, especially those that are flavored and contain added sugars and preservatives.
