Oats for your health
Oats have several unique health benefits. Scientific studies prove that oat contributes to a steady blood sugar level, improves cholesterol and keeps the stomach healthy. Lantmännen invest in a lot of research and development in order to take full advantage of the unique health benefits of oats.
The explanation to all the health benefits of oats lies mainly in the fibers. Oats have a high content of soluble fibers, beta-glucans, but also good protein and oils. Another key aspect is of course the taste – oats fit nicely on the breakfast table and makes the bread juicy.
Research and development
Conditions for growing oats are great in the Nordic region. Lantmännen have for a long time invested in research about oats in order to further refine and develop new foods. AXA Oat Flakes and SPC-flakes with medical benefits are two examples of results from the research. There are many exciting fields left to explore and we support and participate in several ongoing studies. For example, we want to find out why oats are more filling compared to other grains.
