Oats can be fantastic (for those that do not have intolerance). For those who are not sensitive, all the arguments against oats can be countered. *High in phytic acid*. - can be neutralized by soaking in an acidic medium with buckwheat flour... (more)

I am wondering why Oats are demonised for their high phytic acid while almonds are touted as healthy despite having the same level of phytic acid and additional anti-nutrients. Yes you can soak them but you can also do the same thing with... (more)

Why someone may have said this to you is that the phytic acid binds with minerals making your body unable to absorb them, so if for example you were eating this with milk and you needed calcium, oats might then hurt your cause then leading to weak... (more)

Ditching the metric ton of carbohydrate you were eating (reading your other question) means you are going to adjust your glycogen/water weight. After that, it's all a matter of calories to maintain weight, if you under-eat, you'll lose weight. (more)

A great way to eat eggs is to bake them with coconut flour. (look up coconut quick bread recipes) I think its something like 4 eggs for every 1/4 cup of coconut flour. Maybe you could bake something up with the blueberries, chia and cinnamon. (more)

Are oats considered a food high in polyunsaturated omega 6 fatty acids?

best answer

Cccb899526fb5908f64176e0a74ed2d9
Matt_18 0 · August 26, 2012 at 8:45 PM

2.3g of polyunsaturated fat per 100g of dry oats, 2.2g of which are o-6. The ratio heavily favors o-6 but the overall fat content is negligible.
