Ok, we know oats are not a seed! They are a wholegrain - packed full of goodness, with a low GI (glycaemic index), helping to control blood glucose levels and providing a steady release of energy.
They can help to reduce cholesterol and, as part of a healthy diet and lifestyle, can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Oats provide fibre, B vitamins, particularly thiamine, riboflavin, B6 and folate, as well as vitamin E, iron and potassium.
How could we leave them out?
Where to find them: Oats are found in our Munchy Granola
