The Top Eight Health Benefits of GF Oats

Oats are a highly nutritious grain with so many proven health benefits.

We took a quick look at the Top 8 health benefits of Oats, to break it down a little.

Please note that if sold anywhere else in the world, our oats would be labelled as Gluten Free, however here in Australia we can’t legally label oats as gluten free due to strict labeling laws.

  1. Oats are rich in antioxidants
    Whole oats are high in antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds called polyphenols. Most notable is a unique group of antioxidants called avenanthramides, which are almost solely found in oats.

  2. Alternative Gluten free breakfast
    When oats are grown in uncontaminated fields like the oats available at GF Oats Australia, they are fabulous for people with a gluten intolerance as a grain alternative.
  1. High GI and slow-release energy
    Oats are among the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat due to the fact they are rich in carbs and fibre but also high in protein and fat compared to most other grains.

  2. Great for the Heart & Digestion
    Oats has been proven to assist with overall heart and digestive health when included in a balanced diet. Oats contains beta-glucan fibre (regulates appetite, helps you feel fuller for longer) Beta-glucan also has been shown to lower cholesterol.

  3. Soluble fibre
    Oats expand in the belly, this expansion helps us to feel fuller for longer, as well as moving through our digestive system at a slower rate while also reducing the rate glucose enters the bloodstream.
  1. Long Shelf Life
    When oats are steamed and rolled, they are now referred to as stabilized oats which is what we provide here at GF Oats Australia - Steamed Rolled Old Fashioned Oats. They will last months if properly sealed.

  2. Vitamins, Minerals, and all the good stuff
    Oats are sometimes referred to as among the healthiest grains on earth. A delicious, versatile whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants.

  3. Assisting with Weight Management
    Studies show that oats and oatmeal can assist with weight loss, can lower blood sugar levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease.
