I use oat bran for flavor. It’s just luck that it happens to be so good for us.

In one cup of oat bran there are:

  • 14 grams of fiber
  • 16 grams of protein
  • 28% of the daily recommended intake for iron, a mineral needed to build blood
  • 265 % of the recommended manganese, an antioxidant which converts proteins and fats to energy
  • 69 % of the recommended selenium, which is rich in antioxidant properties, considered to be one of the leading minerals in the longevity minded diet, and detoxifies metals in our blood stream such as mercury
  • 69% of the recommended phosphorus, a mineral needed for the strength of bones and teeth
  • 73 % of the recommended thiamine, a B vitamin that converts carbohydrates into energy
