Benefits of Oats | Oats that eat in excess, blood lipids soar at any time, absorb calcium and magnesium. Nutritionists say it is better to eat less for patients with gout
It is common sense to eat oatmeal to stay healthy, but choosing the wrong flavor and overeating can cause blood lipids and blood sugar at any time. Nutritionist Tina Cheng said 100 grams of oatmeal contains about 10 grams of dietary fiber, including water-insoluble fiber and water-soluble fiber. The recommended daily dietary fiber intake is between 25 and 35 grams. Insoluble fiber can promote intestinal health and effectively prevent the formation of intestinal cancer, while water-soluble fiber can absorb excess cholesterol from the body. Oatmeal is also rich in B glucan. A study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that only 3 grams of B-glucan a day, or 60 grams of oatmeal, can stabilize effectively lower blood sugar and lower blood cholesterol.
There are 2 main types of oatmeal on the market, including instant, quick or original oatmeal. The nutritional value of the three types of oatmeal remains unchanged. Another type of oatmeal added with different flavors, such as nuts, berries and white mushrooms, will increase the sugar content of this oatmeal. It is recommended to consume up to 50 grams of sugar per person per day. Excess sugar can cause abnormal blood sugar and increase the risk of diabetes. Some oats are added with ham flavor and salty flavor. Therefore, sodium intake may increase. The recommended daily intake of 2,000 mg of sodium per person is recommended. Excess sodium will increase the risk of high blood pressure.
Tina Cheng noted that oatmeal is rich in starch: excessive intake will cause high triglycerides in the blood, causing dyslipidemia and increasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, if you consume too many fiber-rich foods, there is a possibility that nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus from the large intestine will be absorbed and excreted in the feces. Oatmeal is a food rich in purine, which can cause more severe joint inflammation in people with acute gout, so care must be taken when eating oatmeal. People with gluten sensitivity should also pay attention to oat intake, although oatmeal does not contain gluten, it will inevitably be contaminated during processing.
