Compared to flours obtained from "nobler" cereals, oatmeal boasts different nutritional properties and is certainly a more complete food . It has a good energy density and boasts a high protein intake and low sugar content . Thanks to the presence of fibres, the starch in oatmeal is digested and absorbed slowly, guaranteeing this food a medium-low glycemic index , a feature which makes it suitable for consumption by sportsmen and athletes who want to keep their blood sugar levels. Furthermore, the fibrous part present in oatmeal consists of beta-glucans, molecules that havebeneficial and protective action against metabolic pathologies and on the management of blood cholesterol levels. The large content of soluble Fibre can also be useful for the intestine , as it accelerates the transit of food and promotes the proliferation of lactobacilli, as well as allowing better management of dietary carbohydrates.
Unlike other flours, such as wheat flour, the flour obtained from oats has 5 out of 8 essential amino acids (often only one or none is present in baked goods). Essential amino acids (EAA) are molecules that are indispensable for the correct functioning of the organism, and are so called because the body alone is unable to synthesize them and therefore they must be compulsorily taken with the diet. Oatmeal contains the EAAs Phenylalanine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Methionine and is particularly rich in the amino acid Lysine , which is generally deficient in cereals.
Oats are also rich in micronutrients: in its composition there are in fact phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, selenium as regards minerals and Vitamin B, Niacin and Vitamin E as regards vitamins.
