The Role of Oats in Immunity and Gut Health

Posted on: 21 Sep 2022

Did you know that the majority of the body’s immune system is in the gut?

The gut consists of 70-80% of the body’s immune cells, 100 trillion gut bacteria and other microorganisms such as viruses and fungi. The bacteria in the gut communicate with the immune cells, making the gut one of the most important stimulation sources for developing immunity.


Consumers are now more conscious about their immune health and are more aware of the relationship between gut health and its benefits.
Oats are a fibre-rich food, making oat an ideal ingredient to add to your next product launch.
Oat-Standing™ is a range of Oat Flakes and Flours which can be used in a wide range of applications, from breakfast and bakery to dairy alternatives. Our ingredient solutions can help food and beverage manufacturers to appeal to health-conscious consumers and address consumers' growing interest in gut health by engaging them with fibre.
