Oats have been cultivated for two thousand years in various regions throughout the world. Many studies have documented the many health benefits of oats. Eating oats helps lower LDL "bad" cholesterol and may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your weight. Oats are high in beta-glucans, a kind of starch that stimulates the immune system. They contain more soluble fiber than any other grain. Oats contain more than 20 unique polyphenols called avenanthramides, which have strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-itching activity. They also have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains.
The oats we have sourced are ELISA tested to ensure purity and quality. They are grown in dedicated fields, harvested with dedicated equipment, and are processed in a facility dedicated gluten free. The FDA ruled that to be considered gluten free, foods must not contain traces of gluten higher than 20ppm. Our oats are tested to less than 10ppm. Anything more and they will not be sold as gluten free!
Please be aware that a small percentage of people cannot tolerate even the purest of oats. If you are unsure whether oats are suitable for your diet, please check first with your health advisor before eating them.
