Features of Instant Oats
- Starting your day with a bowl of instant oatmeal boosts your intake of B-complex vitamins. Each cooked cup provides half of your recommended daily intake for vitamin B-6, thiamin, riboflavin and niacin, nutrients that help your body metabolize the carbohydrates, protein and fat in food. It also gives you half of your daily requirement of vitamin A, an antioxidant that benefits your vision and helps strengthen your immune system. It also contains 30 percent of the folate you need daily.
- The Institute of Medicine recommends that adults get 55 micrograms of selenium per day. Selenium is a mineral that may benefit your immune system, heart and thyroid, according to the National Institutes of Health. A cup of cooked instant oatmeal provides 12 micrograms of selenium, giving you one-fifth of the selenium you need each day. Selenium acts as an antioxidant, scavenging free radicals that damage cells, so an adequate intake may help prevent premature aging and chronic diseases.
- Instant Oats are also rich in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, which are crucial for the health of your bones, nerve function and muscle development. A cup of instant oatmeal contains 20 to 30 percent of each of those minerals. It provides men with 13 percent of the zinc and more than 100 percent of the iron they need daily, and it gives women 18 percent of the zinc and 80 percent of the iron they need each day. Zinc is an antioxidant that may shorten the duration of colds and viral infection.
Awesome! These are fantastic! It's nice to have peace of mind eating foods that are allergen-free.
I haven’t had oats in two years since my food allergies started. I am forever grateful for these!
Delicious Delicious! I haven't eaten oatmeal in nearly three years due to an acquired anaphylactic allergy and have missed oatmeal. These were perfect, fresh, and I bought your dried blueberries and cranberries to add to mine!
Great allergy friendly option Great option for gluten free, nut free, top 12 free oats!! They don't cook up as "creamy" as I am used (it seems they don't absorb the water quite as well maybe?) but I'm used to it now and they are great! Maybe buy one before you buy multiple bags
