More and more people are beginning to realise the healthy properties of OatCakes. However, OatCakes aren’t all the same and ONLY Paterson’s OatCakes offer ALL of the following:
Less than 3% Saturated Fat
Saturated fat is the type of fat found in biscuits, cakes, cheese, butter and whole milk. Nutritionists caution us to monitor and control our intake of saturated fat as the liver uses the saturated fat in food to produce cholesterol. Mono and poly-unsaturated fats are the healthier fats found in vegetable oils, oily fish and soft margarine.
The entire Paterson’s OatCake range has less than 3% saturated fat levels and is approved by Scottish Slimmers as part of their Positive Eating Program.
A Low-Sugar Food
Consumers have become increasingly concerned about their level of sugar intake recently – the entire range of Paterson’s OatCakes is low in sugar.
Slow Release Energy
Oats are rich in complex carbohydrates which release their energy more slowly than sugars – therefore providing sustained energy and delaying hunger pangs longer.
A High-Fibre Food
Fibre is an essential nutrient for the body. Roughage greatly helps digestion and general ‘gut-health’ while evidence suggests that eating a high fibrediet may also help reduce cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. All Paterson’s OatCakes are high in fibre.
Contains Olive Oil
Olive oil is often cited as one of the reasons the Mediterranean diet is healthier than our own. Paterson’s OatCakes use only olive oil rather than highly saturated palm fruit oil.
It is difficult to quantify exactly how many people in the UK have intolerance to wheat but estimates vary from 1 in 200 to 1 in 500. Paterson’s OatCakes are made from a 100% wheat-free recipe.
Cholesterol-Lowering Properties of Oats
Oats are widely accepted as helping to reduce cholesterol levels in the body. Cholesterol is the fatty substance produced by the liver and various cells, that when deposited around body tissue leads to build-up and blockages in the arteries. Oat Soluble Fibre (beta glucan) helps control blood cholesterol levels by acting as a sponge and soaking up cholesterol. This allows the body to remove harmful cholesterol naturally, therefore reducing ts occurrence in the body.
