Why aren’t my regular oats gluten free?
Oats themselves are naturally gluten free, but may pick up traces of gluten during processing as this is frequently done alongside other cereals. This is why regular Whole Porridge Oats and Pure Fine Oats aren’t classed as Gluten Free. Gluten Free Rolled Oats have been kept away from wheat, barley and rye during processing, meaning they’ve not been exposed to gluten. These rolled oats are a great source of protein, dietary fibre, vitamins, minerals and Beta Glucans and can easily be made into traditional porridge.
What are Beta Glucans?
Oats are are an excellent source of Beta Glucans, a form of soluble fibre found in porridge oats, Oat Bran, barley, barley bran and other cereals. They have been found to reduce levels of low density lipoproteins (LDL) when consumed at levels of 3g or more per day and as part of a balanced diet. High LDL levels are a major risk factor for heart disease, so keeping them in check is really important. GoNutrition ™ Gluten Free Rolled Oats contain 4g Beta Glucans per 100g, providing an easy way to hit this target.
What are the performance benefits of Oats?
Gluten Free Oats provide a great source of sustained release energy, making them a perfect meal first thing in the morning. Gluten Free Rolled Oats can be prepared exactly the same way as normal oats, either on the hob or in the microwave. They can also be mixed with any of our protein powders to make a high protein meal.
