Organic Oat Bran

The oat (Avena sativa), sometimes called the common oat, is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name (usually in the plural, unlike other cereals and pseudocereals). While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed.

Bran, also known as miller's bran, is the hard outer layers of cereal grain. It consists of the combined aleurone and pericarp. Along with germ, it is an integral part of whole grains, and is often produced as a byproduct of milling in the production of refined grains.

Bran is present in cereal grain, including rice, corn (maize), wheat, oats, barley, rye and millet.

Oat bran is the outer layer of the oat grain, containing significant quantities of dietary fibre. Oat bran is a great source of energy-boosting complex carbs, protein and soluble fibre beta-glucan—the type of fibre. Creamy and delicious, oat bran has a nutty flavour that adds depth to baking and cooking. You can incorporate oat bran into a variety of dishes and baked goods, such as breads, cereals or casseroles. It’s high in dietary fibre and protein.
