Oats are the only cereal grain that contain a globulin or legume-like protein, avenalin, as the major (80%) storage protein. Oat protein is nearly equivalent in quality to soy protein, which World Health Organization research has shown to be equal to meat, milk, and egg protein. Oats contain a minor amount of Avenin, a protein related to gluten, and is safe to eat for individuals with minor gluten-sensitivities. Oat grass, containing a very negligible amount of protein, is even safer than the oat kernel itself. Oats & oat grass contain a very large amount of soluble fiber which contributes to feelings of satiety and a slower digestion. Oats also contain beta-D-glucans, which have been linked to reducing cholesterol and preventing heart disease. In addition to these benefits, oats contain a well balanced ratio of b-vitamins, minerals, amino acids, vitamins, & chlorophyll.
