The best porridge brands according to Öko-Test

Porridge is so healthy

Oatmeal has been one of the undisputed trending foods for several years. More and more products based on and containing oatmeal are filling supermarket shelves. And rightly so: because oatmeal is extremely important for a healthy and balanced diet. They provide rich minerals like iron and zinc, provide us with vitamins like B1 and B6, and are full to the brim with healthy fiber that stimulates our digestion and supports gut health. At the same time, high-fiber foods like oatmeal and oat bran fill you up quickly and for a long time. The complex dietary fibers of healthy flakes cause the blood sugar level to rise only slowly. This provides continuous energy for a long period of time and also prevents hungry appetite attacks.

Porridge products are sailing to the top of the oat trend wave. For years, oatmeal blends and instant oatmeal have been stiff competition for traditional cornflakes and muesli on supermarket shelves. Porridge, also known as porridge, has become a popular breakfast dish. Just over five million adults eat oatmeal several times a week; the number of those who eat oatmeal and porridge once a week or at least several times a month is even higher. No wonder, since porridge is extremely diverse and can be refined to taste. Whether hot or cold, salty or sweet, with nuts, fruit or berries, oatmeal is quick to make, filling, can help you lose weight, and ensures a healthy start to the day.
