The truth about porridge? It’s better for you than STATINS

The truth behind porridge is that it is better for you than STATINS. Eating one small bowl of porridge a day can transform your health into something amazing. One professional strongly believe this one porridge in the morning will be amazing for your overall health, in the long run. The person that believes this eats it himself every day.

Key Takeaways:

  • Eating a simple bowl of porridge every day could transform the health of the nation, in one single step, says Chris Seal, professor of food and human nutrition at Newcastle University.
  • A bowl provides more fibre than a slice of wholemeal bread, is low in fat, virtually sugar-free and provides a wealth of minerals such as manganese, copper and iron, as well as the B vitamins.
  • However, the real benefit of porridge comes from the soluble fibre in the oats. The fibre, a form known as beta glucan, is present in other grains such as barley and rye, but is found in highest quantities in oats.
