They are highly nutritious, rich in dietary fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals and have a distinctive nutty flavor and a chewy texture when cooked. They are commonly consumed as oatmeal, a popular breakfast dish produced by boiling or soaking oats in water or milk. They are also employed in several baked goods such as cookies, bread, and granola bars. Some easily available oat-based products include oat flour, oat bran, and rolled oats in supermarkets. Additionally, they are also known for their high antioxidant content and their potential to support digestion and weight management.
