WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF LIFE PRO OATMEAL?
Source of energy
Oatmeal is a carbohydrate, one of the main macronutrients from which the body is able to obtain energy.
It is a type of complex carbohydrate or high glycemic index: due to a more complex molecular structure, it takes longer for the body to obtain energy, providing a higher satiety index. Its glycemic index is 40.
Provide energy to our body, immediately, as well as act as a reserve for when energy is needed.
Its storage as muscular glycogen to obtain energy is used by the muscle, while hepatic glycogen is transformed into glucose, passes into the blood and goes to the muscle to be used.
Oats are one of the cereals with the highest protein content. They are characterized by the fact that they contain 6 of the 9 essential amino acids that our body cannot produce by itself. Like the rest of vegetable proteins, they are not considered to be of high biological value because they lack certain amino acids, so it is recommended to supplement them with another protein source.
The type of protein found in greater quantities are prolamins
Oatmeal is a cereal that combines the two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble fiber.
Soluble fiber is responsible for providing a feeling of satiety, which is why it is so widely used in breakfasts by people seeking satiety, as well as those who aim to lose fat. It helps regulate blood sugar levels and reduces the possibility of diabetes.

HOW MUCH OATMEAL SHOULD I CONSUME?
Oatmeal is a source of carbohydrates, there is no exact amount of carbohydrates that should be consumed because each person is different, has a different metabolism and the amount of this macronutrient that may be needed is individual to each person. Between 40% and 60% of the daily intake can belong to this macronutrient.

DOES LIFE PRO NEUTRAL OATMEAL CONTAIN GLUTEN?
Oats contain practically no gluten.
Gluten refers to two proteins found mainly in wheat, barley and rye.
Oats belong to a different species called Aveneae, so their content is much lower. Life Pro's neutral oat flour has been processed in facilities where products containing gluten are produced. It may contain traces.
Prolamins account for only 5% to 15% of the total, compared to 80% in wheat, and 30%-50% in rye and barley.
When we refer to uncontaminated oats, we mean oats that do not contain traces of other cereals, and therefore gluten. This cross-contamination is difficult to avoid since they are usually processed in the same facilities.
Legally, a product is considered gluten-free if it contains less than 20 ppm.
Life Pro's neutral oat flour has been processed in facilities where gluten-containing products are produced. It may contain traces.
In conclusion, whether or not to consume oats if you are gluten intolerant will depend on each case depending on tolerance.
It is recommended to consult a health or nutrition professional in case of doubt.
DOES OATMEAL CAUSE BLOATING?
Oatmeal does not usually cause bloating or stomach discomfort in healthy people who do not have any allergy or intolerance to this cereal.
If the person is not accustomed to the intake of whole grain cereals, some bloating may occur associated with a change in the diet by increasing the fiber intake accompanied by cramps or flatulence
To avoid these symptoms, it is possible to start consuming the product in small doses and increase it over time, i.e. gradually until the desired dose is reached.
In this way, the intestinal bacterial flora will begin to assimilate and achieve a balance, which, as a result, will feel good.
Another way to improve its digestion is to soak the oatmeal to denature to some extent the proteins that are difficult to digest and to associate it with the intake of products with digestive enzymes.
