Finnish oats bring peace of mind to the stomach

Finnish oats offer health & well-being straight from the fields of Finland. They are suitable for the tables of mixed eaters as well as gluten-free or FODMAP diets. In addition, nutritionally excellent oats lower blood cholesterol, reduce fluctuations in blood sugar levels, promote stomach function and are rich in immune- boosting antioxidants.

Let us digest


1. Naturally gluten-free oats
Oats are suitable for all stomachs because they contain no gluten, unlike other domestic grains such as rye, wheat, and barley. It helps to maintain a diverse range of beneficial gut microbes, so it contributes to the well-being of all of us. Oats are also suitable for people with food sensitivities and people with irritable bowel syndrome that follow the FODMAP diet.

2. Beta-glucan is good for the heart and blood vessels
Beta-glucan, which lowers blood cholesterol, is a soluble dietary fibre that forms a gel with water in the intestine to prevent cholesterol from being absorbed into the body. It is a real super gel because it binds cholesterol-containing bile acids, which also reduces the amount of cholesterol that enters the bloodstream. Beta glucan also helps to control fluctuations in blood sugar levels. It promotes well-being and helps to maintain energy levels.

Oats have more protein and fat than other domestic cereals. Most of the fat in oats is unsaturated soft fat, which is beneficial to health. Oat protein is also of high nutritional quality and is well absorbed. Oats are high in fibre, more than half of which is heart-friendly beta-glucan. Oats also provide B vitamins, iron, magnesium, and zinc.

4. Fibre speeds up stomach activity
Regular consumption of home-grown oats prevents constipation, supports intestinal health, and stimulates stomach function. Foods rich in fibre increase satiety and can therefore make it easier to lose weight. Beneficial gut microbes also like regular fibre meals. Did you know that one hundred grams of oats contains nine grams of fibre?!

5. Antioxidants strengthen immunity
Oats contain several antioxidants. Research shows that antioxidants help with the body's defence and inflammatory responses, for example. Antioxidants also contribute to the well-being of skin.
