Oats are a natural superfood because they are 100% whole grain, and contain vitamins and minerals. Oats contain fibre, and are unique in that they are one of the richest sources of rich beta-glucan, a soluble fibre, that can help to lower cholesterol re-absorption^. They are also low in sodium (salt) and provide protein and carbohydrate for energy.
Oats contain a special type of naturally occurring soluble fibre, called beta glucan, which has been shown to lower cholesterol re-absorption^. Healthy plant foods, such as oats, contain no cholesterol. Oats go a step further by also helping to slow down the re-absorption of cholesterol in the bloodstream, making them an ally in your heart health*.
^A 40g serve of oats provides a minimum of 1 g beta –glucan. Oats can help lower cholesterol re-absorption as part of a diet low in saturated fat. 3g of beta-glucan each day is required to help lower cholesterol re-absorption.
Foods that are healthy are often high in fibre. It’s the insoluble fibre in oats, which passes through our digestive system without being absorbed, that helps maintain and condition our digestive system.
Oats have several beneficial properties which makes them a superfood: they are a whole grain; provide protein, are low in sodium and are minimally processed. They are a natural source of energy and contain a special type of fibre, beta glucan, that can help to lower cholesterol re-absorption^.
The UNCLE TOBYS name and logo has significant historical significance, it was designed by Nellie Love, the niece of Clifford Love – the founder of UNCLE TOBYS, who was a keen artist and a student of literature. She suggested the name and designed the logo based on the great literacy character in the “Life of Times of Tristram Shandy” by Laurence Sterne, first published in 1759. In the book Uncle Toby is a gentle, uncomplicated lover of his fellow man. The original design of Uncle Toby standing with the Widow Wadman has seen little changes over the years, so has become a treasured representation of the UNCLE TOBYS heritage.
