Oats contain soluble fibre for healthy digestion, controlling blood-sugar levels and helping with weight loss.
But what is the difference between instant oats and rolled oats?
Today, we outline why a bowl of instant oats does not have the same nutritional value as the rolled variety.
The difference between the two is a matter of processing – the more similar to natural form, the better. Rolled oats take longer for the digestive system to break down which, in the spectrum of carbohydrates, makes them one of the lowest Glycemic Loads (GLs). Instant oats are processed which takes away all the natural benefits that rolled oats have.
This delicious recipe is bound to change your outlook on a modest bowl of oats!
