Oat Bran is the nutrient-dense outer husk of oat grain. It’s an excellent source of fiber. NOW Real Food™ Oat Bran is a good natural additive to most baked goods and is primarily used to boost fiber content. It adds texture and imparts a subtle nutty flavor that’s ideal for breads and muffins, and it’s a flavorful addition to cereals, or as a topping for breads and muffins that adds color and improves taste.
Soluble fiber from foods such as oat bran, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease. A serving of NOW Real Food™ Oat Bran supplies 3 grams of soluble fiber.
To use as a hot cereal, simmer 2/3 cup of Oat Bran in 2 cups of water for 2 minutes, while stirring. Add salt, raisins or flavors to suit taste. Serves two. Optional: Add 1 tsp. of vegetable oil for added smoothness.
