Our oat bran is finely ground. Its best eaten as hot cereal, mixed in baking or added in smoothies. Oat Bran helps to actively lower cholesterol due to high concentration of soluble fibre beta glucan which helps soak up and eliminates cholesterol from the body. Oat Bran is also high in fibre and ideal for managing weight. Plus, it's an excellent source of nutrition, including protein, fiber and iron! We get ours from Blue Lake Milling in Australia!
