Oats are grains obtained from the Avena Sativa plant which belongs to the Poaceae family. They are consumed by humans in the form of oatmeal or rolled oats and are also used as an ingredient in animal feed. Although with the availability of low-cost substitutes, along with changing farming practices, the usage of oats as a feed grain has significantly declined over the past few years. On the contrary, the consumption of oats as a breakfast cereal and an ingredient in baked goods has witnessed a boost due to the presence of a variety of nutrients including vitamin E, essential fatty acids, soluble fibers and antioxidants. Oats also contain beta glucan which is a lipid-lowering agent and lignan that not only lowers unhealthy cholesterol levels and prevents heart diseases but also reduces the chances of hormone-related cancers.
