Oat bran or oat bran powder comes from the outer portion of the oat grain. You may ask, what’s the difference between oat bran and oatmeal then? Well, the main structural difference is that oatmeal (typically rolled oats) includes the whole grain, while oat bran refers to just the outer portion of the oat. Both are healthy options for an enriched healthy diet, but consumption of oat bran products trumps eating whole-grain products! Oat bran is an excellent source of fibre, containing 50% more fibre and protein than oatmeal. Also, the benefits of oat bran are not limited to just fibre and protein content; oat bran has a higher antioxidant content, more B vitamins and minerals compared to other oat products!
What distinguishes our GardenScent Oat Bran Powder from all other oat products is the patented process we use to break down the tough exterior of oat cells to release the oat beta-glucans – the potent cholesterol-lowering compound – that is made more easily available to the body. Our premium product is highly popular, touted for its fuss-free preparation, deliciousness, and most importantly, its health benefits.
Our product has a super smooth and creamy mouth-feel that makes it simple to incorporate into any meal and easy to consume.

Are you suffering from high blood cholesterol levels? Oat bran contains soluble fibre (beta-glucan), which reduces the low-density lipoprotein (LDL), otherwise known as the “bad” cholesterol. The soluble fibre helps to lower overall cholesterol level and the risk of heart diseases by binding to cholesterol-producing fats; thus, it helps reduce absorption of cholesterol and carries them out of the body through natural digestion.
Beta-glucans can help in blood glucose management as well! It forms a gel in the intestine and stomach, thereby increasing the viscosity of the intestines’ and stomach’s contents. The greater thickness causes the food to be emptied slower; thus, spikes in blood sugar levels can be avoided, and the rises in blood sugar levels are spread out more evenly over a longer period.
For those watchful of their waistline, this product helps to manage your weight as well! Once consumed, oat bran enters the digestive tract where its soluble fibre absorbs water and forms a gel-like substance, creating a feeling of satiety. This will help to sustain the feeling of fullness longer and thus, help you control your calorie intake.
Our gut flora needs to be maintained for good digestive health. Good bacteria assist the body in enhancing resistance to harmful bacteria, yeasts, and parasites. Beta-glucan present in our GardenScent Oat Bran Powder acts as a prebiotic, providing nutrients that healthy bacteria (probiotics) in the intestine requires for optimum growth and health.
It is convenient and easy to incorporate the health benefits of oat beta-glucans into your daily diet. GardenScent Oat Bran Powder can be added to any drinks, juices, smoothies or included in your puddings, baked goods or soup recipes; our Oat Bran Powder lends creaminess to beverages and smoothies, giving them a luxuriously smooth mouthfeel. With its myriad of health benefits and convenience, this product is suitable for all ages, beneficial for diabetic patients, the lactose intolerant, elderly, and those with swallowing difficulties.
