Complex carbohydrates — the major component of oats — help supply your body with nutrition for sustained energy to inspire and feed any adventure.
Oats are an excellent source of dietary fiber, which has been linked to the promotion of gastrointestinal health and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
Although oats are predominantly carbohydrates (56%), each oat kernel is also approximately 18% protein, which is higher than whole grain wheat or rice. The protein in oats can help contribute to your overall daily need for protein.
Organic oats are a good source of iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc. These minerals help keep your body functioning at its best.
Organic oat farming does not use high toxicity pesticides or GMOs, but does employ farming practices that support healthy farming communities and thriving ecosystems.
