Why Protein Porridge?
Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. Studies show that oats have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels and a reduced risk of heart disease. Add protein to this and you have a great, balanced meal.
Porridge oats have a very low Glycaemic Index, this means they are slowly absorbed into the body’s blood stream. This not only gives a long gradual release of energy and helps keep your blood sugar levels stable but it also keeps you full much longer than other breakfasts.
Protein is a massive functional component of the cells that make up our body. A protein molecule is made up of long chains of amino acid subunits. Many of these are not made or stored in the body, so it is essential we get plenty of them in our diet, and our porridge is packed full of the stuff.
