Eating a bowl of porridge will kick-start your day and keep you on the move until lunchtime and beyond. If you have sensitivity to gluten and need to be sure there is no cross-contamination in your oats then these are the ones for you.
Oats are a prime source of both soluble and insoluble fibre. The soluble fibre will become a viscous gel in your digestive system slowing down the passage of food through the gut, lowering your cholesterol and helping to stabilise your blood glucose levels. The insoluble fibres will help to provide a 'moving' experience by curtailing constipation and promoting intestinal health.
Oats are a good source of carbohydrate as their slow digestion means they won't have a detremental effect on your blood sugar levels.
