Oats are healthier than you think

  1. You don't hear about oats very often. It is therefore a bit of a forgotten crop, but oats are very healthy. Especially for breakfast. It is similar to wheat, rye and barley but has a higher protein and fat content. In general, people avoid foods that contain a lot of fats, but in this case it is about essential fatty acids that are in just the right proportion and are therefore indispensable.

Phytic Acid

  1. Oats contain Phytic Acid, and Phytic Acid is an anti-nutrient. Antinutrients inhibit the absorption of minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc, and that works in the opposite way. They are mineral robbers. You can also find Phytic Acid in Brinta, soy, legumes and grains. So you cannot really ignore it. Take wholemeal or multigrain bread, for example. These products are very healthy, but it is precisely because of these phytic acids that the healthy minerals are not properly absorbed by the body.

The solution for oats without phytic acid

  1. Let the oat flakes soak overnight and drain the water the next morning. Soaking releases the phytic acid and you can rinse it away with the water. The advantage that you also have is that the oats do not have to cook for long. You reduce the cooking time from 30 minutes to one minute. Watch out! Oats sold in stores are heated in the production process, which means that pre-soaking and draining is no longer useful. If you want to apply this method, you will have to purchase the oats from a miller. To sweeten the oats in a healthy way, you can add Stevia. Stevia is a natural sweetener that contains no calories.

Gluten intolerance

  1. Oats are also a valuable substitute for wheat, barley and rye for people with a gluten intolerance. An absolute condition is that the oat products must not be contaminated (contaminated / contaminated) with gluten proteins from the aforementioned grains. There are some gluten-free producers in the Netherlands who are closely involved in setting up a celiac-safe oat chain, so just google it.
