The Prebiotic Benefits of Oats
We have spoken about the health benefits of oats many times here at GF Oats Australia, as we just love this superfood. So, it’s time to talk about the Prebiotic benefits of oats.
The fact that you can access pure uncontaminated oats here in Australia is something we are very proud of doing. I have done an extensive article about the 5 top benefits of oats in your diet here. We hear a lot about the benefits of probiotics assisting our gut health. And the need to repopulate our systems continuing with good bacteria. As a result of the onslaught of modern day exposure to various elements. These elements deplete our good bacteria balance in our systems.
Some of these include ingesting medications, birth control, stress, junk food, alcohol and caesarean births. From the information, I have gained over the years and someone who passed on a very compromised set of good bacteria to my children. We need to be actively supplementing our systems with good bacteria in the form of probiotics and prebiotics.

It is very beneficial to choose foods that have a prebiotic effect and essentially feed the probiotics. As a result, this will boost the effectiveness of any probiotics you take.
Oats happen to be a wonderful prebiotic grain that contains a large amount of fibre known as beta-gluten and resistant starch. I have written about Beta Gluten more extensively here…
Basically, it has been linked to improving good bacteria levels, controlling blood sugar, slowing down digestion and lowering cholesterol.
The soluble fibre in oats reduces our absorption of bad cholesterol, known as LDL (low-density lipoprotein) in the bloodstream. Therefore, essentially, every spoonful of porridge or muesli you eat containing oats, is doing wonders for your health. Especially oats uncontaminated from the gluten found in wheat, rye and barley.
