One Bowl of Porridge for Breakfast Could Transform Your Health, Experts Say
Chris Seal, a professor of food and human nutrition of Newcastle, believes that eating a bowl of porridge every day could transform the health of the nation, in one single step.
According to health experts, a bowl provides more fiber than a slice of wholemeal bread, is low in fat, virtually sugar-free and provides a bunch of minerals such as manganese, copper, and iron, as well as the B vitamins.
However, the real benefit of porridge comes from the soluble fiber in the oats. The fiber, or beta glucan, is present in other grains such as barley and rye but is found in highest quantities in oats.
Studies have found that eating 3g of beta-glucan a day (around what you’d get in a 70 g bowl of oats) can reduce your levels of harmful LDL cholesterol by around seven percent.
