Oats are a great idea for breakfast as they can give us the energy, we need to kick start the day, and are a great source of fibre. And just to top it all off they’re low in saturated fat too. If you’re looking into how to lower cholesterol, you’ll be interested to know that oats also contain beta glucan, which has been proven to bring cholesterol levels down*. Keeping these levels low helps to keep your heart healthy.
What’s more, oats do all of this naturally. What more could you ask for from the humble oat? Oh, that they also make our products taste scrummy too – whether it’s our creamy porridge or baked to crunchy perfection in our granolas.
*Oat beta glucan has been shown to lower blood cholesterol when consumed as part of a varied and balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. High cholesterol is a risk factor in the development of coronary heart disease. Each portion of Jordans Porridge and Granola provides at least 1g of beta glucan, a third of the recommended daily intake of 3g.
