Properties of FlapJack
Flapjack bars have a 46% of oat flakes. Oats are a good source of soluble dietary fiber, specially β-glucan, which has excellent functional and nutritional properties. β-Glucan is regarded as the main active ingredient of oats due to its ability to lower cholesterol and its anti-diabetic effects. However, the benefits of oats seem to go further, since they also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. (1)
Beta-glucans are the part of soluble fiber from oats. It has a positive effect on satiety. The viscosity of beta-glucans makes them act as a barrier in our intestine that prolongs the digestion process, providing a solution for hunger. (2)
This appetite control and satiety allow those who use this flapjack bar to remain longer periods of time without eating and to restrict their calorie intake.
