Oat is a good source of soluble fibre and is therefore highly recommended for people with high cholesterol and high blood pressure, says Madelaine Terrier, a nutritionist at the Heart Foundation in Kingston.
Plus, oat is a good source of B vitamins and is low on the glycemic index. This means it is slowly absorbed into the bloodstream, allowing the blood sugar level to remain stable. For diabetics this is a critical factor.
Terrier, who admits that she’s big on oatmeal porridge, adds that “it can hold you.”
