Porridge oats are a quintessential part of the Scottish breakfast. In fact, they have been eaten since the medieval times.

Why oats?

Oats are an all-year round favourite. Warm and comforting in winter. Providing a fresh crunch when drizzled in natural yogurt, honey, fruits, nuts and seeds in the summer.

Oats as you will see them growing in the field.

Oats are great as they slow the absorption of carbohydrates into your bloodstream, keeping you fuller for longer. Oat are naturally gluten-free wholegrain that are rich in various vitamins, minerals and fibre.

Did you know? Oats are packed with magnesium, which helps your body to produce energy and regulating your blood pressure.
