Over the past few decades oats have become a very popular health food .Oats are loaded in dietary fibre (containing more than any other grain) and having a range of healthy cholesterol lowering properties. Recentstudies also have shown that oatmeal have some heart healthy benefits. This is mainly due to the rich source of water- soluble dietary fibres, particularly beta glucagon, that are found in oat meal. The U.S.Food and Drug administration claims that oats, as part of overall heart healthy diet, could lower the risk of heart disease. The potential health benefits of oats include: reducing the risk of coronary heart disease and lowering levels of cholesterol.
