ZEGO - Double Protein Organic Oats
These Organic Gluten Free Protein Oats are purity protocol gluten-free (the highest GF standard) and have about twice the digestible protein of typical rolled oats and 20%-40% more fiber, which means they have a lower glycemic load.
- How are these oats so high in protein? This high protein oatmeal is a natural feature of the variety of oats their farmers grow, which was selected due to its high protein content and growing height (see Purity Protocol info below). This higher protein is retained because ZEGO does not heat process the oats before rolling them out for you. These oat hulls are very loose and fall off during harvest, whereas other brands have to steam their grains to remove the hulls, which decreases protein content.
- What about anti nutrients, mycotoxins, and enzyme activity bitterness? Because these oats are raw, their natural enzymes are still active, and that activity can result varying levels of bitterness in the raw product. The good news is that those enzymes are preventing the development of anti nutrients like phytates that can interfere with nutrient absorption and cause digestive upset. In addition, because these oat hulls are naturally extremely loose around the grain, they also have much lower mycotoxins than other typical hulled oat grains. You should always cook any kind of oats, and especially raw oats. This will neutralize the bitterness from the enzyme activity.
- Are these oats good for diabetics? These oats are low glycemic — they have no added sugar and are higher in fiber than other brands. This makes them a better choice for diabetics.
