Although the name oat groats may sound a bit funny, this form of oats is nothing to joke about. Packed with tons of nutrients, oat groats are a gluten-free cereal grain that’s loaded with cancer fighting antioxidants and high in dietary fiber. Oat groats support heart health and are also good for weight management as they can make you feel full longer. They contain numerous vitamins and minerals with increased levels of zinc, copper and phosphorus which all help to promote overall health. Also known as husked oat kernels, oat groats are minimally processed and consist of the cereal germ, the bran and the endosperm.
