Flaked cereals and their benefits.

Dictionary defines the word “Flake” as “a small, flat, very thin piece of something, typically one which has broken away from a larger piece.”

“Flaked cereals” are “produced from, either whole grain or parts of the kernels of whole grain like corn, wheat or rice,” and “produced in such a way as to obtain flaking grits that form each flake.”

So, cereals are essentially grasses grown for their edible grains, and, flakes are the processed, ready to eat, by-product of the grains.

Some common flaked cereals and their benefits:

Millet:

These are very small grains, native to India, with an impressive nutrient profile, gluten-free, and nutrient-rich. They contain a variety of chemical compounds that reduce risk of heart diseases. They improve gut health and help with weight loss.

Corn:

Also called Maize, it contains vitamin B, and essential minerals like zinc, magnesium, copper, iron and manganese; it is a good source of antioxidants; is rich in fibre, which helps with digestion and weight management and also reduces chances of colon cancer.

Wheat:

Wheat is very low in unsaturated fatty acids; low in sodium; rich in potassium and group B vitamins; high in carbohydrates and insoluble dietary fibre; and also contains minerals like iron, zinc and magnesium.

Oats:

Oats are high in beta-glucan, a soluble fibre which controls blood sugar; increases insulin response; reduces cholesterol; and protects blood vessels from the damaging effects of LDL cholesterol.

Jowar:

Also called sorghum, it is gluten free; has high magnesium levels which help maintain calcium levels; protects against diabetes and helps manage cholesterol. A member of the millet family, and an ancient grain, it's gaining much popularity.
